LOOP-LOC, Pool Cover Company that Services New Jersey, Talks About Pool Water Safety

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., July 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Pool cover company, LOOP-LOC, talks about pool water safety.

Splashing and swimming in the pool is the ultimate in summer fun! It is also important to keep family and friends safe while they are enjoying all that the swimming pool has to offer. One of the most important pool water safety practices is to actively supervise children and stay within arm's reach of younger children. Assign a responsible person the task of watching the water when people are in the pool. This person should be distraction-free. Cell phones, electronic devices, and reading are not allowed. It is also important to make sure that no one swims alone. No one should swim alone, either. Young or inexperienced swimmers should wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life vest. Have swimmers take frequent breaks; once an hour is a general guideline.

Establish—and enforce—pool rules. Post them by the pool where they are visible to all guests. Examples include no running, no diving, apply sunscreen (place it right by the pool), and swim with a buddy.

Keep the pool water clean and clear. Test the water regularly and adjust as needed to minimize the risk of earaches and rashes. Check the water to see that it is circulating and filtering properly.

Secure the pool with a 4-foot or higher pool fence that has a self-closing, self-latching gate. When the pool is not in use, place a safety cover on it. A pool alarm is also a good safety measure to alert pool owners when a person or animal enters the pool.

For the ultimate in safety, enroll new and inexperienced swimmers in age-appropriate swimming lessons. Make sure everyone in the home knows what to do in case of an emergency. Water safety and CPR courses can also be beneficial.

Adhering to all of these guidelines should result in much fun in the sun for everyone! Enjoy this incredible time while it lasts, there is nothing else like it.
