Pool Pro Shares 3 Swimming Pool Safety Tips for the Upcoming Summer, Kihei, Hawaii

Do you love to go swimming? Whether you have an inground pool or an above ground pool, Pool Pro in Kihei, HI, recommends exercising caution at all times, regardless of how experienced you may be. Swimming pool accidents come in all shapes and sizes, from minor scrapes to life-changing mishaps.

To increase your safety and protect your loved ones this summer, follow these swimming pool safety tips, brought to you by Pool Pro:

  • swimming poolsWalk, Don't Run: If you've ever swum in a public pool, then you've heard the lifeguards and seen the signs — don't run! It doesn't matter whether you're enjoying your private swimming pool or spending a week on vacation, you should never run around an above ground or an inground pool. While it may be obvious to some, the area around pools is wet and slippery, which can cause horrible accidents.
  • Dive Where It's Deep: While you may think that you know how deep a swimming pool is, sometimes you won't know until it's too late. Above ground pools are rarely deep enough to dive into, and sometimes even inground pools are too shallow. The best way to avoid fatal injuries is to follow the pool rules and read the signage. If you don't know the depth of the water, always use the ladder to enter the swimming pool.
  • Never Swim Alone: It's late at night, the moon is shining, and no one's in the swimming pool — the perfect time to take a dip, right? Think again. No matter how good at swimming you may be, swimming alone is extremely dangerous. You could get hurt, or worse, drown, without anyone there to help you.
