Helpful Reminders on Fall Pool Safety

  • Check the temperature of the water before entering. The water temperature in your pool may have dropped significantly since the summer, so it's important to check the temperature before getting in. If the water is too cold, you could experience cold water shock, which can lead to drowning.
  • Avoid swimming alone. Even if the weather is warm, it's still a good idea to have someone with you when you're swimming in the fall. This is especially important if you're swimming in a pool that's not well-lit or if you're not a strong swimmer.
  • Be aware of the risks of cold water shock. Cold water shock can happen when you suddenly enter cold water. It can cause your heart rate and breathing to increase, and it can make it difficult to swim. If you experience cold water shock, get out of the water immediately and warm up.
  • Be careful when using pool toys and floats. Pool toys and floats can be a lot of fun, but they can also be dangerous. Make sure that you use them properly and that they're in good condition.
  • Avoid slippery surfaces. The pool deck can be slippery, especially when it's wet. Be careful when walking around the pool, and wear shoes with good traction.
  • Supervise children closely. Children are especially at risk of drowning in the fall. Make sure that you supervise them closely when they're in or around the pool.

By following these pool safety tips, you can help to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable swimming experience in the fall.
