The lifeguard salary or average wage for a lifeguarding position is $8.90 per hour.  Most lifeguards move on to other positions after 3-5 years with this position.  Pay for lifeguarding jobs does not change much by experience, with the most experienced earning only a bit more than the least.  Below is a third party lifeguard salary pay scale to show how much on average lifeguards get paid in the United States.

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.

Pool Management Tips Part – I

Properly Caring For Your Pool Cover Will Help Keep It Clean and Strong

After removing the cover from your pool, it is important to clean, fold, and store the cover properly to avoid any damage during the summer. Once the cover has been taken off the pool, lay it out flat and brush off the remaining water and debris. Let the cover dry and then, before folding it, sprinkle on Leslie’s Alkalinity Up or talcum powder to prevent mold or mildew from growing on the cover.

Take special care when folding the cover to prevent cracks and rips. Fold the cover loosely, and then store it in a cool, dry place like a basement, garage, or storage shed. This should help keep your cover in good condition year after year.

Remove All Winterizing Plugs and Replace Them With the Correct Drain Plugs

If you live in an area where the temperature stays below freezing for much of the winter, then you most likely replaced most of the drain plugs in your equipment with special winterizing plugs. These winterizing plugs provide a very tight seal and prevent any damage due to leaks or ice during winter. After reconnecting your equipment, you will want to replace the winter plugs with the normal, correct plugs to allow the equipment to run properly.

Use a Sump Pump to Remove Water Before Taking Off Pool Cover

If you have a winter cover or a solid safety cover, chances are that a fair amount of water and debris has built up on the cover during the long winter offseason. Pool covers can be difficult to remove when there is water on them, so it would be a good idea to use a sump pump to drain the water off the cover before moving it.

When taking the cover off of the pool, it is best to use two people because, even with most of the water drained off, pool covers can still be heavy. Take care not to spill too much debris from the cover into the pool. If a small amount of water or debris does spill in, this won’t be problem because the pool will be thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed.

Make Sure To Reconnect All Pool Equipment

You will want to reconnect all the equipment that you disconnected before the winter season. This usually includes the filter, the pump, the heater, the automatic pool cleaner, and all other pool equipment that was unplugged at winter closing. This is also the time to connect any ladders, hand rails, and pool accessories that were taken down for winter.

When reconnecting your equipment, it is a good idea to lubricate all O-rings on your equipment and all bolts and screws on accessories like ladders, diving boards, and rails with silicone lubricant. This will keep the equipment working properly all year, and will make it easier for you to disassemble them when you close your pool.
