Make Pool Safety Your Top Priority: A Checklist for a Safe Pool Area

Swimming pools are a place where people come to relax, have fun, and cool off during hot summer days. However, with the joy that comes with having a pool comes the responsibility of ensuring that the pool area is safe for everyone who uses it. Unfortunately, drowning incidents are all too common and can happen in the blink of an eye. That is why pool safety should always be the number one priority for pool owners.

There are many words people associate with swimming pools. Words such as chlorine, summer, goggles, and of course, safety. Chances are, if you’ve ever been to a pool, especially a public one, you probably noticed signs everywhere listing the pool safety rules. These rules are in place to ensure the safety of all pool users, and they must be followed.

But what if you own a pool in your backyard? Do you know how to make sure that your pool area is as safe as possible for your family and friends? This pool safety checklist will show you how to make your pool area the safest it can be.

1. Install a fence – A fence around your pool area is a must. It’s the best way to keep young children from wandering into the pool unsupervised. The fence should be at least four feet high and have a self-closing, self-latching gate that opens away from the pool.

2. Install a pool alarm – A pool alarm is a device that sounds an alert when someone enters the pool. It’s an excellent way to be alerted if a child or pet gets too close to the water.

3. Have proper pool drainage – Make sure that your pool’s drainage system is working correctly. This will prevent any dangerous suction from forming that could trap someone underwater.

4. Always supervise – Never leave anyone alone in or around the pool, especially children. Even if someone is an excellent swimmer, accidents can happen at any time.

5. Keep rescue equipment nearby – Have a shepherd’s hook and life ring close by at all times. These tools can be used to help someone in distress, and every second counts in an emergency.

6. Have rules in place – Set rules for your pool area, and make sure everyone knows and follows them. Rules can include things like no running, no diving, and no horseplay.

7. Keep chemicals stored safely – Store pool chemicals in a locked cabinet or shed that is away from the pool. These chemicals can be dangerous if ingested or if they come into contact with skin or eyes.

8. Learn CPR – Knowing CPR can be the difference between life and death in an emergency. Take a CPR class to learn this valuable skill.

In conclusion, pool safety should always be the number one priority for pool owners. It’s crucial to take the necessary steps to ensure that your pool area is as safe as possible. By following this pool safety checklist, you can help prevent accidents and keep everyone who uses your pool safe. Remember, having fun is essential, but safety should always come first.

Sunshine Pool and Leak Stoppers remodeled my pool adding a landing, swim out and reinforcing the beam which was in terrible shape. All my calls and questions were answered promptly. They also finished the job on time.

I woke up to find a stranger in my pool, I was not given notice of the time that someone was arriving to check the pool. They supposedly found and fixed all the leaks. I am still losing about 2 inches a day. I specifically ask for someone who is fluent in English. I will not blame the poor guy that the owner Jose sent out. I was told the were going to show me where the pool pipe under ground are. I found that the person messed with all the valves, almost burned up our pool pump as the pressure was way too high. I spoke with Jose who hung up on me. Said he would immediately refund my money. The person I spoke to was rude and obnoxious. The did not fix the leaks and may have caused damage to my pool pump. Definite would advise you to avoid doing business with a company allows someone to trespass on my property with out notifying me first, unprofessional in many ways. Avoid this company like the plague. you had been to my property one to "fix the leaks in my pool, send me a print out of how the pipes run. My pool still had leaks. I was very specific in my request to have some fluency in the English language. Imagine if you woke up to a strange man swimming in your pool. I was not notified what time this person was arrive. I was promised a refund that still has not taken place. Please refund the money you charged me to not stop any of the in the pool.

I'm so happy and incredibly grateful for the amazing job they did with my pool. Finding a good reliable and professional company with ethics in Miami is like finding a needle in a haystack. After speaking with just about every pool repair company in Miami (for a very unusual problem with my pool that nobody could really explain), Jose was the only one who took his time to patiently investigate, and explain things to me and was super honest, reliable and not out to price gouge. He showed up with his team (Andre and Francois) and they brought my broken pool back to life with the least amout of demolition (and put the cement deck back the way it was before). I'm just so happy right now. I will always call them for all my pool repairs and future pool remodeling. OH and last but not least Claudia and Nelly who answer the phone at the company were great too. THANK YOU!!!!

Fast, accurate and professional service! After having an expensive pool deck with new concrete and tiles done in November, I was very frustrated seeing the pool was losing water significantly through an invisible leak. Sunshine Pool Stoppers young but knowledgeable staff found the exact location of the leak and were able to fix it with quality removing just 1 tile!! They letf the deck looking like nothing had happened and did the repair job in one day.

Worked with Andres over several months to get things straighten out with an insurance claim from Hurricane Irma. They were the only company that showed up to do the work, all others made the appointment and never followed through. They came when they said they would and weather permitting, (it has been raining a lot) they worked and did a fantastic job. They tested and repaired a leak, resurfaced the entire pool and spa, changed the broken lights, and did the glass replacement work on my waterfall. Andres consulted with me every step of the way. I am a very satisfied customer. Andres was thorough with great follow-through skills. Their crew is very professional, they know their business. A little more TLC and my backyard will be back to being the great space it always has been. Pics show what they started with, and the end product.
