Swimming Pool Safety and You – Part 1

Swimming Pool Safety and You – Part 1

Summer sure feels like it’s here already with near record-breaking temperatures and rising humidity across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). If you haven’t opened your swimming pool yet, you likely will soon. Swimming pool safety is an important part of owning a pool and following safety protocols will allow you to get the most out of your swimming pool each and every summer, worry-free.

– Always have a fence with a locking gate around your swimming pool. It’s the law. Read more on Toronto’s swimming pool fence bylaw.

– If you’re in charge of supervising young swimmers, take a CPR course to familiarize yourself with swimming pool safety protocols and to increase your own confidence when supervising children.

– Only ever allow swimmers to dive from the tip of the diving board, never from the sides of the diving board or sides of the pool. Sometimes, it can be difficult to judge the depth or the distance from the other side of the pool when diving.

– Keep the telephone near the swimming pool to avoid the temptation of running inside – even just for a second – to answer a ringing telephone.

– Swimming lessons are a great way to give kids more skills and confidence in the water. But no matter how advanced a swimmer your child is, no one of any age should be in a swimming pool alone or unsupervised.

Following proper swimming pool chemical storage and safety protocol is just another way to stay safe around your pool this summer. Please see our tips for the safe storage of swimming pool chemicals.
