Pool Safety: A Priority in NJ Pool Construction

While swimming pools are a good source of entertainment and relaxation at home, they could be potentially dangerous if effective protective measures are not in place. For this reason, reliable pool construction companies in NJ are making safety their priority. Ideally, they look into safety parameters as early as the design phase.

Below are some safety tips for those who want to have a pool built in their backyard:

  • If a swimming pool is designed to have multiple pool depths, there has to be visual cues onsite to warn both swimmers and passersby.

  • Pool fences and covers are also very important, particularly if the family who owns the pool has very young children, but they are only feasible if the pool was designed to accommodate such safety equipment.

  • Electrocution can be avoided if the pool’s appliances rely on batteries rather than power cords. Cord-powered devices are still possible, provided that their wires and circuitry are completely isolated from the pool itself. They also need to be waterproof and, preferably, placed in self-contained shells.

  • As for problems with entanglement, swimmers’ awareness and caution play a huge role. If they avoid staying near the pumps and filters, they could avoid getting their hair and swimwear tangled in these pool fixtures. The least pool contractors could do is to place suction outlets or filters as far away as possible from the shallow parts of the pool, or to have a backup system that would relieve an outlet should entanglement/blockage occur.
