Pets And Pools, Is It Safe For Our Pet & Inground Pool?

petinpool-aq-blog

Our team at Aqua Fun pools know that it’s difficult to keep the dog out of the inground swimming pool. After all, our pets think they are human, and part of the family. If we are swimming, they are swimming. Kudos to those of you who have managed to train your canine furry friend not to jump in the pool.

We’re sure you’ve wondered if swimming in the pool was safe for your pooch? And was it safe for the pools mechanics? Those are both great questions and we will certainly offer some facts which may help the next time Fido does a belly flop into the pool.

Is it bad for the animal?

Generally speaking, it’s not bad for humans and it’s not bad for dogs either. Salt water pools are usually less chemically toxic for humans and animals but there are still safety concerns with salt water pools which chlorine pools do not have, of which we will discuss. According to Bridgemill Pets of Canton,” the largest risk with a pool for any animal is drowning of course as they can panic too, especially if they do not know how to get out of the pool. However, the AKC has an article stating the amount of chlorine in pools is no more harmful to pets as it is to humans“. According to Bridgemill Pets some other things to watch out for includes excess water indigestion, “in fact drinking from the pool should definitely be discouraged especially if it’s a salt water pool. Also drinking from the pool can irritate your dogs eyes and nose sensitivities; cause ear infections, especially from floppy eared dogs and can dry out the skin.”

Be sure to rinse pets off with the hose after a day of swimming.

Is it rough on the pool and it’s mechanics?

It can add more stress on the mechanics for sure but there are preventive measures you can take to lessen the stress on your pool mechanics. If hair gets clogged in the filters or baskets, it could be a big problem so be proactive and check the filters and baskets for hair build up which could clog the system.

Time to Winterize Your Pool!

Welcome Fall in North Georgia!

Time To Winterize Your Inground Pool And Prepare It For Next Swimming Season

You may have already closed your pool for the Winter, or perhaps you’ve been trying to squeeze in every last swim you can? This September has been warmer than normal so we hope you get to enjoy the pleasant extension. Either way, it’s time to start thinking about getting your pool ready for Winter. If you are closing it up rather than turning on the heaters, this blog post is for you.

Purpose of Winterizing Your Pool

The purpose of Winterizing your pool is to keep it safe, maintained in good shape and prepare it for an easy opening again in the Spring. The better you take care of your pool, the longer you will be able to enjoy it’s many benefits.

Part of Winterizing your Inground Swimming Pool is deciding to add a Safety Cover. You have choices. Mesh covers come in different colors and are the most economical choice because it costs less and lasts longer than many of the other choices out there. There are differences in the mesh covers, solid safety covers and this is something our specialists can inform you about and help you decide. What’s good for one person may not be good for another so let’s decide together.

 Benefits of Winterization

The four main benefits of properly Closing Your Pool For The Winter are:
  1. Keeps the pool clean – imagine being able to take off the Winter Safety Cover in the Spring, covering a few basic instructions and then dive in within a day or two of re-opening it? Sound appealing to you? Good, then simply follow the steps below or call us to schedule your pool closing today (770) 419-7119.
  2. Keeps the pool maintained – you want to make certain the chemicals are balanced to prevent fungal growth; that the cover is tight and secure so there are no accidents nor uninvited guests or debris fall in the pool; to impede excessive evaporation which can create hidden dangers for your pools lifespan. Keeping your pool properly maintained is very important for your own personal joy, pocket book as well as keeping  ready for resale if and when you decide to sell your home. TIP! Every Fall and Spring you need to schedule on your calendar certain pool maintenance rituals that will keep your pool healthy and young. Check out the list below.
  3. Keeps your family members, guests and animals safe while you are not using your pool this Winter – it’s easier for mistakes to happen when your pool is left open. There will likely be holiday parties scheduled and family visits over the Fall and Winter seasons. Keep everyone safe from harm and keep the stray animals out of the pool this Winter. It’s easier to forget about the backyard pool when the backyard is not being utilized as much, so using this “Pool Closing” time as a precautionary measure is always a smart plan.
  4. Keeps your liability down – it’s always a better idea to be safe than sorry. If your backyard oasis is used year-round because of the outdoor kitchen or outdoor fireplace you built then you want that added peace-of-mind knowing whoever and whatever is enjoying your backyard beauty is also safe from accidentally falling in the pool, hence keeping your liability down.

How To Winterize your inground swimming pool

  • Balance the pool’s chemicals
  • Lower the water level and drain those pipes
  • Clean, clean, clean
  • Remove pool accessories
  • Put a lid on it

Don’t want to do it yourself? Schedule your Pool Closing here!

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:

  1. Post rules so everyone can see them
  2. Go over rules with children and young adults before they start swimming
  3. No running, dunking, pushing or rough housing
  4. Don’t dive into shallow end
  5. Always swim with a buddy
  6. Keep approved safety devices such as life preservers, pool noodles, rope, life hook and boogie boards easily accessible
  7. Remain focused on small child at all times
  8. Add 4 sided fencing around pool with child safe self latching and self closing gate
  9. Add pool alarm once party moves indoors you’ll want to stay vigilant
  10. Identify any new swimmers, best is that all swimmers are experienced
  11. Keep charged cell phone handy at all times
  12. Wear sunscreen, don’t get sun poisoning
  13. Evacuate pool in rain or coming storm

A lot of it is common sense and you’d be surprised how easily tragedy can strike so always be vigilant!

Have fun – Keep Family Safe!

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
