Atlanta’s Top Pool Builders offer Summer Pool Safety Tips
June is National Safety Awareness Month
There is nothing better than a fun family and friend pool party at your house. Although it can be a lot of fun and create many lifetime memories, we want them all to be good memories. We don’t want to be negative but one must always plan for the worst. What would you do if someone hurt themselves at your pool? Before anything like that ever happens, please take extra care to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Since the month of June is National Safety Awareness Month, there is no better time than to lay out a good safety plan for your outdoor inground swimming pool.
Here are a few basic things Aqua Fun suggests you should do to prepare your family and guests:
- Post rules so everyone can see them
- Go over rules with children and young adults before they start swimming
- No running, dunking, pushing or rough housing
- Don’t dive into shallow end
- Always swim with a buddy
- Keep approved safety devices such as life preservers, pool noodles, rope, life hook and boogie boards easily accessible
- Remain focused on small child at all times
- Add 4 sided fencing around pool with child safe self latching and self closing gate
- Add pool alarm once party moves indoors you’ll want to stay vigilant
- Identify any new swimmers, best is that all swimmers are experienced
- Keep charged cell phone handy at all times
- Wear sunscreen, don’t get sun poisoning
- Evacuate pool in rain or coming storm
- Grown ups should not drink alcohol and swim nor be in charge of children at the pool
A lot of it is common sense and you’d be surprised how easily tragedy can strike so always be vigilant!
According to the CDC, did you know:
- Children: Children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates. In 2014, among children 1 to 4 years old who died from an unintentional injury, one-third died from drowning.1,2 Among children ages 1 to 4, most drownings occur in home swimming pools.2 Drowning is responsible for more deaths among children 1-4 than any other cause except congenital anomalies (birth defects).1 Among those 1-14, fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death behind motor vehicle crashes.1

August is also the time to plant bulbs for a large array of beautiful lilies.

Summer Pool Party Tips
It’s that time of the year again, the school bell is ringing all over North Georgia. This can be an exciting time but also a stressful time. Just because school is back in session does not mean the summer is over. What better reason is there to celebrate the new school year, blow off some steam and invite your friends and family over for an end of the summer pool party than this?
Get those Super Soakers out after the planned activity, the kids will never get bored. Look out because you might just get wet.
You know the party has started when dad does a belly flop. Have your camera’s ready, these are epic moments the kids will never forget. If belly flops are not your cup of tea then a good old fashioned cannonball will work just fine. These days of summer are priceless and memories can last forever so be sure to snap pictures.
Beach balls and hula hoop’s can be a lot of fun. There are several games one could play with either toy, but the game you see below is a great way to combine the two. Do you like basketball? If you do then you will really enjoy this game.
An end of summer pool party would not be complete without a great array of food and drink. You will find some great poolside treats on our Pinterest board. More reason to see why there is no need to squeeze in the last minute trip to Florida to create family memories. With your new Aqua Fun Swimming Pool & Spa you can have a Staycation right in your own back yard. We give you several great ideas for your vacation at home in this blog post.
Looking to have a more adult party? No problem, a nighttime pool party might be the better choice. Since you already added the beautiful underwater illumination to the pool, waterfall and spa you don’t have to do much more to impress.

Prepare For Your New Pool and Swim By Summer
1. Build Your “Dream Pool” Pin Board.
Help us know what you’re looking for, start a “Dream Pool” board on Pinterest. Invite us to your Pinterest board using our email address – firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Decide between a Gunite, Fiberglass or Vinyl Inground Pool.
- Vinyl Pools have a cost advantage.
- Fiberglass Pools are known for low maintenance
- Gunite Pool is the strongest of the three choices, and also the longest lasting.
3. Have a clear sense of purpose.
Ask yourself why you’re installing a swimming pool. Do you want to exercise more? Are there small children in your family who love to swim and you want to create more family time? Want to increase the value of your home? Are you a naturalist and want a Salt Water Pool instead of a chlorinated pool? Whatever the reason, knowing your purpose will help us make it the dream pool you have been wanting.
4. Decide what kind of pool shape you want.
Once you have established how you will be using your swimming pool, it will be easier to decide the shape. Rectangular designs provide a timeless, classic look and are great for swimming laps and playing pool games. If you prefer a natural looking pool, then a kidney or free-form shaped inground pool can blend with the landscaping and be a great choice for you.
5. Focus on the details.
Pick Recreational Add-On(s), Water Features and Underwater Illumination to complete your dream swimming pool design. 2015 Swimming Pool Trends include but are not limited to Custom Entry’s, In-Water Benches and Table, Tanning Ledge, Grotto and Swim Up Bar, Diving Board, Water Slide, Splash Pad, Exquisite Waterfalls, Bubbling Fountains and massaging jets.
Do you want to add a spa to the pool design? Not sure if it is in your budget? Be sure to ask the professionals at Aqua Fun, our team of experienced designers can help you come up with the best plan for your dream pool!
6. Keep safety in mind.
Do you want a pool alarm? If you have small children around you may want to consider it. Child-proof locks on gates, and security alarms on windows to the backyard are also considerations. Safety Covers will add that extra barrier of protection you may want. Aqua Fun is all about safety first and with that added security you can have peace of mind knowing your family is safe around the pool.
7. Plan your pool party!
Be sure to check out our Poolside Treats board on Pinterest for an awesome menu to celebrate your new pool.
