Educate Your Kids About Swimming Safely, from your Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.
The Pool Man, Inc. cares about swimming pool safety, especially for children. Here are some helpful pool safety tips from our friends at SafeKids.org
- Every child is different, so enroll children in swimming lessons when you feel they are ready. Teach children how to tread water, float and stay by the shore.
- Make sure kids swim only in areas designated for swimming. Teach children that swimming in open water is not the same as swimming in a pool. They need to be aware of uneven surfaces, river currents, ocean undertow and changing weather.
- Whether you’re swimming in a backyard pool or in a lake, teach children to swim with a partner, every time. From the start, teach children to never go near or in water without an adult present.
