Pool Chemical Safety Tips from your Houston Pool Builder

As the weather warms up and you are getting your pool ready for Summer – here are some reminders about your pool chemicals:

  • Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions on all packaging. Be familiar with emergency procedures.
  • Keep chemicals out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Store your pool chemicals in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and in an area that is well ventilated.
  • Containers should always be kept closed when not in use and chemicals should be kept in their original container.
  • Never store oxidizers and acid near each other. Oxidizers will release chlorine gas if they come in contact with acids.
  • Do not store liquids above powders or solids and do not stack containers.
  • Do not store pool chemicals above your head in hard to reach spaces.

Follow these simple precautions and have a great swimming season this year!
