Pool Safety tips

Nothing beats relaxing in a swimming pool on a hot summers day in Gauteng. By following pool safety guidelines, you can make sure that you can relax without worrying about accidents happening in or around your pool. We suggest pool owners make pool safety their priority by following these guidelines:

Secure your pool with appropriate barriers. Completely surround your pool with a 1.2-meter-high fence with a self-closing and latching gate. Use a safety cover on the pool when not in use and remove any ladders or steps used for access. Consider installing a pool alarm.

Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child’s life to another child.

Protect your skin. Limit the amount of direct sunlight you receive between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and wear sunscreen with a protection factor of at least 15.

Designate a responsible person to watch the pool when people are in it—never allow anyone to swim alone.
Have young or inexperienced swimmers wear a life jacket.

Ensure everyone in the home knows how to swim well by enrolling them in age-appropriate swimming courses.

Keep your pool clean and clear. Maintain proper chemical levels, circulation and filtration. Regularly test and adjust the chemical levels to reduce the risk of earaches, rashes or more serious diseases.

Establish and enforce rules and safe behaviors, such as “ask permission to swim”, “no diving”, “stay away from drain covers”, “swim with a friend”, “no glass containers near the pool” and “don’t run.”

Ensure everyone in your home knows how to respond to swimming pool emergencies by having appropriate safety equipment and taking, first aid and CPR courses.
