Protection By Your Pool: Summer Safety Tips

Pool Insurance Carlisle PAEnjoy A Stress-Free Summer With This Guide

As a pool owner, you look forward to the summer. Not only does it mean you get a reprieve from the harsh Pennsylvania winter we just experienced, it also means you can soak up some sun and relax in your own yard. So that you can enjoy your summer poolside without worry, implement these pool safety tips.

  • So that no one ever falls into your pool by accident, erect a perimeter fence around it that is at least four feet high and has a self-closing, self-latching gate.
  • Use touch supervision with small children. In other words, never be further than an arm’s reach away from those who are still learning to swim, even when they are using flotation devices.
  • Invest in plastic cups to use by the pool so no broken glass ever ends up poolside—or, worse yet, in the pool—where people are likely to be barefoot.
  • Keep flotation devices, reach poles, and a first aid kit where they can be easily access in an emergency.

Another crucial aspect of setting protections in place as a pool owner is ensuring your Carlisle homeowners insurance offers sufficient coverage. To talk to an insurance expert to ensure you have the policy you need, contact Miller Insurance Associates.
