Pool Safety

Handled properly, pool and spa products protect you, your family, your friends, and your property. Handled improperly, pool products can be very hazardous. Use these tips.. and be safe and enjoy your pool and spa!


Keep all products out of reach of children. Always keep an eye on where any children or pets are in relation to product containers. Handle all products carefully.

Store all products in a dry, well-ventilated area – with the lids on. Never store products in direct sunlight. Never store products near a heat source or open flame. Never store sanitizers next to pool equipment. Do not store liquid products above dry products. Do not store pool products and garden products (fertilizers, insecticides, etc.) in the same area.

Never mix products together. Always add products into sufficient water. Never add water to products. Gassing and/or explosion may occur. Read and follow label directions. Do not overdose. This is costly and can be harmful to swimmers and/or the pool or spa. Use clean, dry plastic cups or scoops on products requiring measuring utensils.

Do not put a wet measuring scoop back in a container. Do not inhale fumes or allow products to contact eyes, ears, nose or mouth. Use only products specifically recommended for chlorinators and brominators. Be familiar with first-aid instructions on all product containers. Have emergency medical and poison control center phone numbers handy at all times. Do not smoke when using products. Keep products away from grass and landscaping. Product spills should be handled per label directions.


Pool depth markings, security fencing, and a "Pool Rules" sign are recommended. Safety equipment should include a life ring, shepherd’s crook, and a first-aid kit. An experienced swimmer should be present whenever a non-swimmer or child is in the pool area. The pool area should be vacated during an electrical storm.
