How to Make Your Pool Safe For your Christmas Get Together

Christmas is such a great time of year to get together.

Friends and family come around for a BBQ and cool down in your pool. Everyone is in good spirits and excited to catch up with people they haven’t seen for a long time! Too often, the mood can quickly turn distressing as one of the kids wanders toward the pool while the adults are busy talking. As the seasons shift, swimming pool owners need to take special precautions to ensure their pool is in optimal shape and safe for kids to wander.

To keep your safe for Christmas get together—whether you’re using it or not, regardless of the season must have a pool cage in Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Naples, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte, North Port, Venice, Estero, Punta Gorda, and Lehigh Acres and a screen enclosure in Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Naples, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte, North Port, Venice, Estero, Punta Gorda, and Lehigh Acres.

Children are naturally curious and inquisitive and are fascinated by water. The question is is your pool safe?

As a pool owner, you have a responsibility to ensure your pool does not contribute to drowning cases statistics, especially during the holiday season in Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Naples, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte, North Port, Venice, Estero, Punta Gorda, and Lehigh Acres.

Here are some ideas on how to keep your pool safe for Christmas get together.

  1. Get your kids familiar with water as soon as you can. By the age of 5, kids should at least have the basics of floating, doggy paddle and have the ability to get out of the pool should they happen to fall in.
  2. Be very cautious of interruptions that are likely to distract you such as your phone or a knock on the door. We recommend you never be further than an arm’s reach away especially for kids under 5 for their safety.
  3.  Make sure kids can’t access the pool while there is no one around the supervise. The best way to prevent kids from getting into the pool area is to ensure your fencing and gates are compliant and up to standard, or your pool has a pool cage from Fabri Tech or a screen enclosure.

One of the biggest advantages of having a swimming pool screen enclosure in Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Naples, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte, North Port, Venice, Estero, Punta Gorda, and Lehigh Acres is that it will help keep your pool cleaner. Pool cage keeps your pool cleaner by acting as a physical barrier that keeps most leaves, sticks, and other debris from falling into the pool. This means you will have to spend less time and money cleaning and maintaining your swimming pool. Also, by having an overall cleaner pool your filters and pumps are less likely to become clogged and damaged.

Swimming pool screen enclosures can also act as a safety precaution. Children and animals who may wander into your garden are denied access to your pool, preventing accidental drowning. In many areas, homes that have a pool without a pool enclosure are required to build a fence to prevent accidental drowning.

Pools that are located in areas that experience problems with bugs and flies can greatly benefit from having a swimming pool enclosure installed. The screens on the enclosure can prevent many biting bugs from flying in and ruining any pool party this Christmas.
