In addition to taking proper pool safety measures for your pet’s safety in your swimming pool such as installing a removable pool fence and using a pool cover, it is advisable to learn how to perform CPR on your pet, especially if you have a dog.
In addition to keeping the safety of young children in your swimming pool at the forefront of your mind when you are outdoors relaxing by your pool, you must also have some safety measures in place for pets. Whether you have pets of your own or your guests do, it is important that you have a plan. As high as 5,000 pets have drowned in family swimming pools every year. No one wants to see a beloved pet suffer through injuries or die from pool accidents. By keeping the pool safety of your pets as a priority, you can prevent these mishaps and ensure the safety and comfort of your pets, along with your own peace of mind.
You have just found the perfect house replete with swimming pool! Time to dive in? Not quite yet - you need to make sure that pool is in good condition.

Whether you have just bought a new house with a pool, spa or hot tub, or need to check your existing pool, a pool inspection is important to conduct for your pool. Pools can be misleading. Even though the water may appear beautiful, the pool itself may have all kinds of problems and be in need of repair.
A common question that we get at Pool Safety Systems is, “How long will my new swimming pool cover last?” It is an important question to know and does affect your purchasing decision. Also as a new homeowner, you may have found that your pool comes with an existing pool cover. Some areas also require pool inspections. Let’s take a closer look at the three common types of swimming pool covers and how long each of them last.
Pool covers vary in cost depending upon the size, type of material used and the brand quality. We offer several types of pool covers for our customers. One of our most popular brands is Loop Loc.
Did you know that it takes only 2 minutes for a child to drown in a pool? Swimming pool accidents can be fatal. Avoid such calamities with a good plan for pool safety.
Drowning and accidents are unfortunately far too commonplace in swimming pools. For many new homeowners, who have just bought new homes with pools, it is helpful to first get a pool inspection to ensure that your pool is up to safety standards. Pool inspections may not be necessary in order to buy a home with a pool, but make a lot of sense as pools can be very expensive to build and fix. Having a pool inspection done by a certified pool inspector will help you understand the condition of your pool and any safety precautions you need to take as well as anything that needs to be fixed such as a pipe, cracks in pool tiles or broken heaters. Even if you have had a pool in your home for a long time, it can be helpful to get a pool inspection to help you check your pool’s current standard and to fix anything that needs to be repaired. After a pool inspection, the most important thing you can do to safeguard your kids and loved ones when using the swimming pool, is to install proper pool safety equipment such as pool covers and pool fences.
Swimming in your own private pool can be very enjoyable. Enforcing rules about pool safety may not be at the top of your priority list. However, given that pool accidents can happen unexpectedly and the high risks associated with children drowning or having fatal injuries, it is important that you have a plan in place to ensure safety at your pool at all times.
With as many as 30% of all child deaths from unintentional injuries attributed to drowning according to the CDC, it is essential that you have proper measures in place for your child’s safety at home and when you travel for swimming pools and outdoor areas. When you have a child at home, pool safety becomes a top priority as accidents can be fatal. Children can drown very quickly in 2 minutes or less. Even when rescued, children who have almost drowned or experienced accidents in pools, can suffer from permanent brain and organ damage. It is therefore vital that you carefully plan for your child’s safety at home to avoid any life-threatening situations. With good planning and awareness, you can avoid any mishaps, injuries and fatalities.
