Everyone in South Carolina enjoys a refreshing dip in the pool, especially during those hot summer nights. Enjoying your swimming pool can be one of the most relaxing, rewarding and fun things you can do during the summer. It doesn’t matter the age or ability, a pool will gladly welcome you into its liquid paradise. Let’s look at how to ensure your friends, family and home (from a liability perspective) are safe this swim season.

What can you do? The best way to prevent an accident this swim season is by simply watching out. No one should swim without supervision. Add a fence or some kind of protection barrier if you have concerns about a child or pet getting too close to the pool.

And it’s not just the water that can get you into trouble in the summer. The hot sun is relentless; always wear sunscreen or protective clothing. Swim during the cooler times of day and avoid dehydration by ingesting a constant flow of liquids.

The same rules you’ve heard all your life, such as no running around the pool, watching who is in the water before you jump, etc., are all still true today.

If you have any safety questions or concerns about your swimming environment, don’t hesitate to call an Alaglas professional at 843-789-9469.
