May Is Water Safety Month: Keep Your Kids Safe Around Swimming Pools, Kihei, Hawaii

As summer approaches, more people are heading to their swimming pools, looking for a break from the ever-climbing heat. That’s why Pool Pro in Kihei, HI, is proudly celebrating National Water Safety Month this May, helping you keep your family secure in the water. Their team has a few simple tips to help you boost your water safety efforts at home so the entire family can have fun in your backyard pool.

What You Can Do

Since May is National Water Safety Month, start the season off by talking to your kids about basic safety around the pool. Encourage them to be cautious around the water and avoid playing by the water’s edge without an adult. Make sure they know they should always ask for permission before going swimming. The more you talk to your kids about how to stay safe around water, the better prepared they’ll be. Once they’re familiar with the rules for swimming pools, consider enrolling them in swim lessons with an experienced instructor. They’ll be able to prepare your child for different situations and help them learn to swim safely at all times.

Take Precautions Around the Pool

Swimming poolsThough talking to your kids about water safety will help them be more aware of their actions, you’ll want to minimize potential hazards as much as possible. Barriers and fences around home swimming pools will help keep your kids out of the water when you’re not with them. Keep emergency flotation devices on hand in case your child or their friend falls in, and teach your kids how to use them. Reduce the temptation for unsupervised swimming by keeping pool toys out of reach unless you’re there to supervise.

Stay safe this summer and keep your home swimming pools in great condition with help from Pool Pro. Visit their website for more information on their pool services and call (808) 879-3294 to schedule an appointment.
