Pool and Hot Tub Safety Tips

Chemical Safety

  • Always add chemicals to water, NEVER add water to the chemical!
  • Keep chemicals out of the reach of children and pets
  • Store chemicals in a cool, dry well ventilated location out of direct sunlight
  • Keep lids securely in place at all times
  • Do not reuse chemical containers for other uses
  • Never mix chemicals together
  • Do not smoke when handling or adding chemicals to the pool
  • Wash your hands with soap and water after using chemicals

Swimmer Safety

  • Constantly supervise children while around/in the pool
  • Pool deck should be kept clean and clear of debris
  • Decks should be non-slip
  • All glasses and dishes should be non-breakable
  • No running or rough play around the pool
  • NO DIVING into shallow water, check the water depth before considering diving into the pool
  • If your pool is equipped with a vinyl safety cover keep it closed when the pool is not in use or needs to be open for chemical applications
  • If your pool is equipped with a vinyl safety cover be sure to pump off any rain water as it accumulates, water on the cover is just as dangerous as no cover.  Most manufacturers provide a pump with the cover.
  • Alcohol and water does not mix, be responsible
