With summer around the corner, you might be thinking about some swimming pool safety measures. While there are many you can take, a great way to improve the safety of your pool is to install a pool cover. A pool cover is a visual statement that the pool is closed, so kids will stay away.
Not all pool designs can be integrated properly with pool covers, so it us important to use a swimming pool contractor you trust, like Dreamscapes by M.G.R., when considering adding this swimming pool safety measure as it may require some changes in your overall swimming pool design.
The pool cover you choose should be on that installs easily and conforms to safety standards. Pool ladders and slides can interfere with pool covers, and this is not a one-size-fits-all addition. Your swimming pool cover should conform to safety specifications of ASTM F 1346-91 and a good pool cover should be strong enough to hold two adults and a child so that if someone does fall onto the cover they can be quickly rescued.
It’s also important that the pool cover be easily removed in case of emergency. Motorized and manual pool covers are available, so think about what would be most quickly removable in an emergency and have us make suggestions as to which cover would work best with your pool.
A swimming pool is a great addition to your yard to beat the heat. By taking simple swimming pool safety measures, which may include the addition of a pool cover, you’ll be sure that your summer is fun and safe.
