o             Perform related duties and responsibilities as required

These are just a few important points that makes PMI’s pool lifeguard points that are winning aquatic facilities business across the country.

That a child, age four and under, is 14 times more likely to die in a “non-guarded swimming pool” than they are to be involved in a motor vehicle death.  That’s right… 14 TIMES MORE LIKELY! With that startling and alarming statistical fact, isn’t about time that you have certified lifeguards and/or first responders at your pool facility?  Pool lifeguards not only help prevent incidents and accidental deaths they also establish order and structure that is needed at all commercial pool facilities.

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.

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.

Keeping your pool sparkling clean doesn’t have to be as cumbersome as you might think. All pools are different, and so are their maintenance needs. However, they all share one commonality: The secret to pristine pool health is regular, routine care. If you choose to handle common problems like murky water or broken pumps on your own, make sure to always consult manufacturers’ manuals before fixing or using equipment. No matter if you rely on a service company to take care of your pool, you still need to do a few things on your own to ensure your pool stays in good condition for years.

Finally, clean the pool: skim, brush walls, vacuum, empty skimmer baskets, close skimmer line valve, lower water level to approximately 18 inches (45 centimeters) below the coping and supercholorinate. Lastly, cover the pool to keep out debris.

Pool water should be tested regularly to make sure it’s clean and healthy. The pH scale is a measurement of acidity or alkalinity that runs from 0 to 14. A reading between 7.2 and 7.8 is ideal; this range is safe for swimmers and helps sanitizers work at top efficiency.

If a pool is properly winterized, it can easily be reopened come swimming season. Most importantly, don’t remove the pool cover until you’ve cleaned the area around the pool. Sweep or hose away debris to prevent it from getting into the pool. Next, use a garden hose to fill the pool to its normal water level. Reconnect everything that was disconnected. Water will need to flow through the circulation system, so open the skimmer line valve. Test the water for its pH level, then shock the pool. It’ll take a week or more before the pool gets balanced and becomes swimmable. Leave the pump running 24 hours a day, and reduce the run by only an hour or two each day until the water is balanced.

Where you live determines whether or not you should winterize your pool. If your location experiences temperatures that drop below freezing, you’ll need to take steps to ensure that your pool stays healthy. Residual pool water left in pipes can freeze and cause damage. To prevent this from happening, use an air compressor to blow water out of the pool’s plumbing when swimming season is over. Also, drain as much water as possible from the filter and heater. Any remaining water can be eliminated using nontoxic antifreeze (caution: this is different from antifreeze for vehicles). Disconnect the heater, pump and chemical feeders, the latter of which should be cleaned and stored.

Keeping your pool sparkling clean doesn’t have to be as cumbersome as you might think. All pools are different, and so are their maintenance needs. However, they all share one commonality: The secret to pristine pool health is regular, routine care. If you choose to handle common problems like murky water or broken pumps on your own, make sure to always consult manufacturers’ manuals before fixing or using equipment. No matter if you rely on a service company to take care of your pool, you still need to do a few things on your own to ensure your pool stays in good condition for years.

A lot of water will be lost throughout the swimming season largely because of evaporation and normal wear and tear, such as swimming, splashing and exiting the pool. When you remove debris with your skimmer throughout the week, that’s also a good time to check the water level. Ensure it doesn’t fall below the level of the skimmer, otherwise the pump could be damaged. If the water is low, use a garden hose to bring it up to safe levels.

If you drain your pool to perform maintenance or once the swimming season has passed, be careful to not let the pool sit empty too long. As a general rule, it’s best to leave water in a pool throughout the winter because the weight of the water counteracts with forces from the ground pressing up against the pool from below.

A pool should be vacuumed every week to keep water clear and reduce the amount of chemicals you need to add to it. There are many types of pool vacuums. If you have a manual design, work it back and forth all over the surface of the pool like you would if vacuuming carpet. It’s good form to slightly overlap each stroke. Check the filter each time you vacuum, and clean it if necessary.

But vacuuming isn’t the only maintenance that should be done once a week. Brushing the walls and tile helps minimize algae buildup and calcium deposits so they don’t fester and become larger problems. The material your pool walls are made of dictates what kind of cleaning tools you should use. Select a stiff brush for plaster-lined concrete pools and a softer brush for vinyl or fiberglass walls. For tiles, use a soft brush to prevent scratching or degradation of grout. A pumice stone, putty knife or a half-and-half mixture of water and muriatic acid can also work well.
