Gunite Pool Safety: Tips for Keeping Your Family and Guests Safe

A gunite pool is a wonderful addition to any home, providing a refreshing and relaxing oasis for family and friends. However, with this luxury comes responsibility. Pool safety is crucial to ensure the well-being of your family and guests. In this post, we’ll explore some important tips for keeping your family and guests safe around your gunite pool, with reference to Creative Edge Pools, a family-owned and operated business with offices in Wilmington, Massachusetts, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

  1. Install a Fence: A fence around your pool area is a must to prevent children and pets from wandering into the pool area unsupervised. The fence should be at least four feet high and have a self-latching gate. At Creative Edge Pools, we can help you design and install a fence that complements the style of your pool area.
  2. Use Pool Alarms: Pool alarms are a great way to alert you if someone enters the pool area. There are a variety of pool alarms available, including gate alarms, perimeter alarms, and underwater alarms. Creative Edge Pools can help you select the right pool alarm to fit your needs.
  3. Provide Adequate Supervision: Never leave children or inexperienced swimmers unattended in or around the pool area. Designate a responsible adult to supervise the pool area, and make sure they have the necessary skills to provide assistance in case of an emergency.
  4. Learn CPR: In the event of an emergency, knowing CPR can make all the difference. It is a good idea for all family members and pool users to learn CPR. Contact your local Red Cross or other community organizations to find classes near you.
  5. Keep the Area Clean and Free of Hazards: Make sure the area around your pool is free of clutter, toys, and other hazards that could cause injury. Keep the pool area clean and free of debris, and make sure all pool equipment is stored safely.
  6. Use Pool Covers: Pool covers not only protect your pool from debris and weather conditions but also help to prevent accidents. Use a pool cover when the pool is not in use to prevent anyone from accidentally falling in.

Keeping your family and guests safe around your gunite pool is essential.
