Tips For Safety Swimming In Pool

It doesn’t matter where you swim, either community pool or your backyard pool, you should know the safe swimming. 
As summer rolls around, it's natural to kick back and take it easy. However, while summer is noted for slower schedules, it shouldn't be a season where safety becomes lax. Summer has its own set of expectations - fun, frolic and free time. 

It also has its own set of precautions. Here are some simple guidelines and fun ideas for a summer that is both safe and enjoyable for you and your children.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that during the last decade the number of diseases has increased from unclean pool water. It is unsafe for some such as: pregnant women, children. Chlorine keeps being the first line of defense in pool treatment. Adding chlorine to the water kills germs and makes water pure.
According to the National Consumers League, Water Quality and Health Council, a national partnership formed by the CDC, and the American Chemistry Council, you should use your intellect of sight, touch, smell, and sound to help you tell the difference.

Notice the differences between healthy pools and unhealthy pools.
Here are some tips:
  • Sight: Look at the water. It should be pure and clean.
  • Touch: Feel of the ground around the pool. They should be smooth and clean
  • Smell: Make sure there is no strong smell.
  • Sound: Listen for the operation of the pool cleaning tools.
The most important step to take for a well maintained swimming pool is to keep it properly chlorinated and hygienic. By taking this action, it will prevent waterborne bacteria and viruses. These water bacteria can cause diarrhea, respiratory illnesses, and ear and nose infections and also skin infections.

The CDC states that it is the duty of everyone to keep the water pool safe and healthy by doing the following:
  • Don’t swim and take risk when you are ill with diarrhea
  • Don’t gulp pool water
  • Take regular bathroom breaks
  • Practice good cleanliness
So, now if you are going for swimming, use your “senses” and have a amazing, refreshing and healthy day at the pool.
