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.

“Blue Water Pools of Freeport designed and built my pool in the early months of 2011. I checked out other pool companies before making a decision. Unlike the other companies, Mr. Garth Mclntosh and Atyia visited my home… Blue Water Pools came prepared for action… I was told when they would begin and when they would finish and they stuck to it. No surprises. Blue Water Pools also service my pool once a week and the staff is on time and does a great job. I can recommend them most highly.”
