Staying Safe in Your Pool

Residential Pool Safety Information

There cannot be any compromise on pool safety. Some of your best memories are times spent poolside. Keeping the time spent at the pool fun and safe is a pool owner's top priority. Unfortunately, one of the leading causes of accidental deaths and injuries in children happen in or at a pool. Implementing safety precautions and products at your pool is your best line of defense. Knowing what these layers of protection are and their benefits, gives you the tools to make informed decisions.

Create A Safety Toolkit For Your Home Pool Or Spa

Drownings are a preventable cause of death and injury for children. By putting proven safety behaviors and systems into practice, you and your family will be much more secure in and around public and residential pools. CPSC recommends that you create a pool safety toolkit to have near your pool or spa to ensure that if the worst happens, you are ready to respond.

  • A first aid kit
  • A pair of scissors to cut hair, clothing or a pool cover, if needed
  • A charged portable telephone to call 911
  • A flotation device
