Every Pool Area Should have:

  • Signs-pool rules and no diving
  • Life preserver
  • Life hook and reaching pole
  • Portable Phone with preprogramed emergency numbers
  • Children’s life vests


  • Never leave your child unattended in the water even for a split second.
  • Keep a cordless phone outside with you at all times.
  • Teach your child how to swim.

Other notes:

  1. Self locking gates, fencing around the entire pool perimeter and a non slip surface. Follow all by-laws pertaining to your swimming pool- this includes having a proper fence surrounding your pool on all four sides
  2. Diving boards – can only be used in inground pools greater than 16’wide, 32’long, a minimum 8’deep.
  3. Slides – should not be used on aboveground pools as they lack the water depth needed for a safe entry into the water.
  4. Suction Outlets (Skimmer/Automatic cleaner outlets) – They need to be covered and pump sizing is especially crucial to prevent objects from being sucked against these outlets. Pump needs to be properly sized for the pool & its equipment
  5. Drainage – You must have proper drainage around the pool perimeter-it is a very important aspect of any installation.
  6. Clear Pool Water – do not use the pool when you cannot see the bottom and main drain.

We have a wide range of safety items available including pool alarms.
