There are a variety of ways in which your Phoenix pool may be hazardous to children and the elderly, although many of these risks can be minimized by proper attention to detail. From the water’s quality to the integrity of the structure, perimeter and deck, you might want to call Poolman to get all of the areas in and around the pool fixed up to be the safest environment possible.

In addition to complying with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, which specifically targets entrapment hazards near drains and how to minimize them, there are several other projects that can make your pool safer for all to enjoy. Regardless of what your Phoenix area pool service needs might be, you should always count on Poolman to get the job done.

Helpful additions
As the winter approaches, you’ll likely be closing up your pool for the season, and this marks a good time to get any big or little projects done for the spring. If you want to make some safety additions, consider these options:

  • Lights: Lights can be an excellent addition for your pool, especially if you want to take a dip after the sun goes down. Additionally, lights will be specifically useful if you have younger children or older adults who want to swim after dark as well. Between the peaceful aesthetic and the additional safety that lights provide, they’re a must-have for any serious pool owner.
  • Handrails: Getting into the pool, no matter what time of day it might be, can be difficult for younger children and the elderly. However, with handrails, your visitors will be able to more comfortably and safely enter the water, as they reduce fall risks and prevent injuries that could result from a slip.
  • Steps: Much like handrails, in-pool steps can quickly make your pool far easier to get into for those who are less agile. These steps also will be welcomed when you simply want to sit with either your feet or legs submerged, but without going fully into the pool. Poolman can install in-pool steps for you to add more safety and another dimension to your pool.
  • Deck: When your deck begins to deteriorate, it becomes a serious safety risk. Cracks, displacement and other issues can lead to falls, so get your deck fixed up today to prevent any issues.
