Residential Pool & Spa Owners
For pool or spa owners, it is essential to adopt critical water safety steps to assure the safety of children in and around the water. By installing safety devices and observing proper water safety behaviors, parents can secure their pools and spas for use by their families, friends and neighbors.
CPSC favors multiple safety steps for swimming pools and spas, ranging from installing pool and spa fences to ensuring children know how to swim. When combined, these safety strategies help ensure that both adults and children are amply protected in and around the water.
A qualified engineer or pool professional can play a critical role in ensuring that a residential pool or spa is operating safely. By properly installing safety devices or accurately measuring the water flow rate through a spa or hot tub, these professionals help maintain the security of residential pools or spas.
