Now that summer is in full bloom, afternoons at the pool are a highlight of these hot and humid days. While swimming may be a fun activity, it can also be dangerous. That’s why we wanted to bring you a few pool safety tips, as recommended by the American Red Cross.
We thought we’d add a few of our own pool area safety tips:
If you have decided to replace your above-ground pool or hot tub, or just need one hauled away, 123JUNK can handle that. We can also clear your yard of debris: yard clippings, branches, leaves, trash from projects, furnishings, and even old swingsets and sheds. We’ll send our big red truck and professional staff around to make the pickup, leaving your yard tidy and ready for play.
Every year thousands of people drown in swimming pools. According to the World Health Organization, drowning is the largest cause of unintentional death in the world and the leading cause of unintentional death for children ages one to four. Statistics claim that about 10 people die from drowning each day in the United States (The Centers for Disease Control) and that approximately 5,000 people yearly receive emergency care for injuries in pools or spas (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.)
Pool safety is of such importance that the government has established regulations surrounding home pools. The “Swimming Pool Code” of 1968 created standards for the electrical equipment that is used around pools, like water circulators and heaters. In Virginia, Code of Virginia ordinances require fencing a minimum of four feet high around swimming pools, even those on private property.
Don’t let a pool disaster ruin your summer. Follow simple pool safety rules, and let 123JUNK help you keep a neat and tidy yard (and home).
