Now that the winter is over, and spring is upon us, Pool Guard Texas warns of the pending danger presented by home, neighborhood and community swimming pools.
“It’s that time of the year again,” says Rick Leviton of Pool Guard Texas. “The neighborhood pools are opening and the neighbor’s pools are being cleaned. What are you doing with your pool to get ready for Texas swim season?”
For those who have recently had a pool built or installed, it is important to let the homeowner’s insurance know about it. Most insurance companies will offer a discount when adding the pool onto the insurance policy if a pool enclosure is installed.
Everyone loves to save money on insurance, and if it could secure a pool and potential save a child from getting significantly hurt, or worse, everyone wins. No matter if it’s a new or existing pool, a pool fence makes total sense and pool owners should always err on the side of caution, play it safe and put a fence around it.
Additionally, Leviton suggests some other safety tips for times when people are in and enjoying the pool:
- Buy some pool noodles to help young children learn to float.
- Use floater wings for children as well
When locking up the pool after the fun, is important to do the following:
- Doors need to have top locks on them
- Fences should have locks and springs
Leviton also advises that kids should have continuous swim lessons. “Let’s all have a safe swim season,” Leviton added. “Mention code ‘swim 13’ and get $50 off any install until July 4, 2013!”
