Swimming pools, spas and bodies of open water are great places for family entertainment. Here are a few pool safety and water safety tips to always practice:

o             “Buddy Up” This means never swim alone.

o             Know your limits. Every body will need a resting period when swimming. Take time to sit out and hydrate.

o             Teach children water and pool safety and swimming skills as early as possible.

o             Children under 5 in or around water should have an adult- preferably one that can swim- should be close enough to the child to provide touch supervision.

o             Never leave children unattended. Make sure you have clear visibility.

o             If a child is missing look in the pool, spa or open water first!

o             Drowning is silent. Don’t think there will be yelling and splashing. Be nearby and alert when children are in water.

o             Swim in safe areas that are supervised by lifeguards.

 

Most water-related accidents can be avoided by knowing how to stay safe by following a few simple guidelines. Learning how to swim in necessary when you plan on being in or near water.

How To Keep Your Pool Clean

Preventative maintenance, just like you would do on your automobile or home, will go a long way in reducing lifecycle cost on your swimming pool. Heed the advice below and save time, money and hassle. None of this is hard, it is just a matter of making it a habit.

 

  • Check pool chemistry 1-2 times per week during the summer and once per 1-2 weeks in the winter. pH should be kept between 7.2 and 7.8 the lower the pH on this scale the less chlorine your pool will need. Why? Because as pH rises chlorine starts becoming less and less active therefor many consumers just keep adding it. Chlorine at 7.0 pH id about 50% active and at 8.0 is about 10% active. Control pH properly and you will need and use much less chlorine. See chart at bottom optimal pool test results.
  • Clean the hair and lint pot located on the front of the pool pump every couple of weeks or as needed. Turn off the pump to do this and release pressure on the system. This is the basket installed just inside the clear glass of you swimming pool pump. People with any of the various styles of will rarely need to do this. Instead, they will clean out the debris catcher or leaf basket. I highly recommend a leaf trapper, debris removal system on all pools, especially new ones. Get a variable speed or 2-speed pump sooner than later if you have not upgraded already. The variable speed pump will easily pay for itself relatively quickly. I started using these multi-speed pumps 20 years ago. They are worth the initial expense.
  • Check your water level when you are out near your pool, is it too high or too low? Your water needs to be right at the center level of your pool skimmer or pool tile for optimal results and performance. If it is low, it can run the pump dry and burn it up, or if too high, the skimmer door will not work properly. That door keeps the debris in the skimmer.
  • Clean out skimmer basket(s) weekly, or as needed if conditions exist. The skimmer is installed in the side of the pool and its primary job is to skim the surface of the pool before debris and contaminants become saturated and float down to the bottom of the pool. Everything in your pool enters at the surface of the water, the effective the skimmer is, the more stuff it can skim off the pool the better. There is a round access panel on your deck, open it up and dump the contents of the basket as needed. Keep it cleaned out at all times.

Keep your pool’s chemical readings in these ranges:

  • PH: 7.2 to 7.8 (I generally keep it on the LOW end)
  • Alkalinity: 80 to 120 ppm
  • Calcium Hardness: 250-450 ppm (The valley has high calcium; as a result, this is not always possible, so don’t drive yourself crazy over it.
  • Cyanuric Acid or Conditioner: 30-50 ppm (Remember Tri-Chlor tablets already have conditioner built into it)
  • Chorine residual: 1.0 to 1.5 ppm; up to 2.0 in the summer with ozone, 3.0 without
  • Combined chlorine: 0 ppm. By managing pool chemistry right, you will substantially reduce the amount of chlorine needed. Much of it is wasted.

Swimming Pool Management Systems

Lifeguards Job Description:

A lifeguard is responsible for assisting in swimmers’ safety and well being in swimming environments such as public pools and beaches.  Lifeguards hold a physical job that requires the ability to swim and perform rescues for individuals in distress.  Proper knowledge of AED, CPR and similar life-saving techniques is needed; proper first aid skills are mandatory, as is lifeguard certification. The lifeguard’s environment is predominantly outdoors with the exception of indoor swimming pools.  Coworkers are typically fellow lifeguards; aside from coworkers, lifeguards participate in substantial social interaction with beach- and pool goers.  Their hours vary depending on their facility’s hours of operation and available shifts.

A lifeguard must ensure that all beach-or pool goers are abiding by the rules.  Lifeguards must also be knowledgeable about – and able to share – information on current water conditions.  They must be responsive to any emergencies that may arise, such as someone in need of first aid or a potential drowning victim.  Additionally, they look out for unsafe conditions in the water, such as the presence of dangerous objects.

A lifeguard must renew their certification each time it expires.  They are also expected to remain in sufficient physical shape to perform their duties.  Good interpersonal skills and the ability to interact well with pool- and beach goers are needed as well.  Lifeguard salary is mostly based on what the job can pay and very little to do with experience.
