Electrical Safety Tip from your Custom Pool Builder in Houston – The Pool Man, Inc.

 If a tingling sensation is felt in or near the pool, shut off all electrical power to pool equipment.

Call a pool professional or electrician to check the pool for electrical safety before allowing anyone to use the pool.

Electrical leakage in a pool area could come from any electrical source. If a tingling sensation is felt, electrical leakage is probably present.

Even with the power off, electrical current could be present. Any electrical leakage in the pool can be very dangerous.

Educate Your Kids About Swimming Safely, from your Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.

The Pool Man, Inc is concerned about swimming pool safety. It is important for parents and guardians to set-up rules for safety and teach your kids to abide by them. Here are some simple tips to keep the kiddos safe and still have “FUN” this summer.

Pool toys and Inflatables are great in the pool, but don’t forget to practice pool safety too!  Many times, kids will jump on and off inflatables not realizing how close to the edge of the pool they are.

Kids also love to dive for weighted toys – make sure they are capable swimmers and don’t over-extend themselves trying to “keep-up” with the stronger swimmers.

Educate Your Kids About Swimming Safely, from your Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.

The Pool Man, Inc. cares about swimming pool safety, especially for children. Here are some helpful pool safety tips from our friends at SafeKids.org
  • Every child is different, so enroll children in swimming lessons when you feel they are ready. Teach children how to tread water, float and stay by the shore.
  • Make sure kids swim only in areas designated for swimming. Teach children that swimming in open water is not the same as swimming in a pool. They need to be aware of uneven surfaces, river currents, ocean undertow and changing weather.
  • Whether you’re swimming in a backyard pool or in a lake, teach children to swim with a partner, every time. From the start, teach children to never go near or in water without an adult present.

Pool Safety Tips for Pets from your Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.

bulldog in pool, dog on a pool float, swimming pool pet safetyThe Pool Man, Inc., cares about swimming pool safety, not only for people, but also for our four (or two) legged friends.  Here are some helpful pool safety tips from our friends at SwimmingPool.com   There are some basics rules you can follow to prevent tragedy when pets are around the family pool. First, your pet should always be taught where the steps in the pool are located, in case he falls in or gets in trouble while swimming. Even pets that are experienced swimmers can sometimes panic if they accidentally fall in the swimming pool. Pets that are too small to use steps should not be allowed in the pool. Here are some other helpful strategies for keeping your pet safe: A fence should be installed around the pool. Install a pet-safe ladder in the pool so your pet has easy exit access. Pets should not be allowed around the pool without supervision. Pool covers are NOT a form of protection. Covers can be deceptive to pets, as they look like a solid surface but can give out and lead to a tragedy. Familiarize your pet with water at a young age; don’t assume he can swim. Consider purchasing a pool alarm system. These float in the pool and go off when there is a disturbance in the water. Take your pet to the veterinarian immediately if a near-drowning or water injury occurs. For our latest pool safety tips, please subscribe to our blog or find us on Facebook.
