Safety Tips for Swimming Pool Owners

Safety Tips for Swimming Pool Owners


Attention to pool safety should not end once everybody is out of the pool. We urge all pool owners to trust pool cleaning, water maintenance, and chemical storage to our certified professionals, but if you decide to handle these responsibilities on your own, please use great care and caution. Homeowners must adhere to the recommended safety guidelines below for use and storage of chemicals and products that keep swimming pools and pool water clean. While safe and effective when used properly, chemicals used in pool maintenance and pool cleaning can be dangerous if mishandled.

  • Keep all chemicals in the original container and the lids securely sealed when not in use.
  • Store chemicals in a cool, dry place away from other chemicals, equipment, and products used for lawn or home maintenance such as but not limited to lawn mowers, fuel, lubricants, pesticides, solvents, paint, and fertilizers.
  • Do not stack containers.
  • Do not pour water into chemicals.
  • Do not mix different chemicals or combine the same chemical from old and new containers. Use a clean scooper for each chemical.
  • Use protective devices to avoid inhalation and contact with skin or eyes. Immediately wash any residue from skin.
  • Keep chemicals out of reach of children and pets.
  • Beware of torn, faded, or illegible labels. If you do not know exactly what is in a container, do not use the chemical.
  • Keep a detailed maintenance log and chemical inventory including purchase dates for each chemical.
  • In case of emergency, call 911 or 919.

Benefits of Restoring Your Pool

A pool restoration can transform an older swimming pool into a pristine personal oasis while enhancing the appearance and value of your home. In addition to giving pools a more modern look, a restoration can increase safety, change the structure, and add eco-friendly improvements to your swimming pool. The end result will be a pool and environment that you will come to enjoy for years to come.

An Improved and Updated Look: A swimming pool restoration can provide a much-needed facelift to a tired property and add value to a home.

A Safer Environment: Advancements to safety technology are made every year in the swimming pool industry. Older pools should be inspected and updated to maximize safety and comply with changes to city building codes.
