FUN IN THE SUN!
THE POOL IS OPEN! TIME TO PARTY!?!
It’s finally here. The unofficial start of summer is beckoning and the pool is open. Let’s party! This is the mantra of many now. While we LOVE a good pool party, there are some rules we need to remind you of that should be enforced to keep your pool and your bathers safe.
GOOD HYGIENE IS KEY
You’re done the yard work, just home from a long day at work or school, or just came back from the beach, and you jump in the pool! When you do that, you are bringing in all the day’s grime that you’ve acquired into your pool. Everything that gets in your pool can affect your water chemistry and clarity. You want to ensure that your bathers are clean and healthy before using the pool.
EVERYBODY NOT IN THE POOL
Your pool may be the neighborhood pool where everybody hangs out, but in reality you don’t want everyone in your pool. If people are sick, injured, sunburned, or with open wounds, they should not be using the pool. Many illnesses can be transmitted through water, and you don’t want to risk getting others sick.
The pool represents a carefree environment where all can have fun. We certainly want people to have fun, but we also don’t want them to get hurt. There are many factors that can present a danger at the pool, so it is the owner’s responsibility to eliminate some of those risks and provide a safe pool for the bathers.
We know rules don’t seem especially fun, but they are in place so everyone can have a great time at the pool! And when everyone is having a fun time at your pool, safe from injury, disease and harm; that can be the best day ever!
