Summer is fast approaching, and many families are looking forward to spending their days lounging in the backyard and attending pool parties with their children. While going for a swim in the pool can be a nice way to cool off in the heat, get some exercise, and make memories this summer, the swimming pool can also be one of the most hazardous areas on your entire property. When school is out and the weather gets warmer, the number of swimming pool-related injuries and accidents rises exponentially, increasing the risk for dangerous or even fatal pool accidents. Even if you or your child has been properly trained about the safety precautions to take, overcrowding and various other situations can leave room for mishap.
Common injuries from swimming pool accidents can occur from the following, and more:
- Dirty water, limiting visibility and causing infection
- Lack of safety equipment
- Incorrect labeling of pool depth
- Damaged equipment
- Lack of trained professionals such as lifeguards
However, these possible occurrences don’t mean you have to limit your family’s pool use this summer—by simply taking a few more precautions, you can make your swimming experience even more enjoyable thanks to peace of mind. Checking the chlorine levels, depth of the pool, and always having up-to-date safety equipment can ease your worries and make this summer a more memorable one than the last.
