by Pool Builders on 02-20-2012 in Articles

Summer is on the way. In the scorching heat, your kids will definitely want to spend a lot of time in the swimming pools. If you want your children to have a wonderful time in the Pinto pools and at the same time want to enjoy your own swimming or sun bathing without any worry it is high time to teach your children the basic safety tips and the swimming skills. However, teaching your children all these steps requires patience and teaching ability and you can even go to the swimming training centers for pre sessions on the safety tips or join the workshops.

What primary tips do your kids need to learn?

If you want your kids to be safe while they are playing in the pool, teach them the following tips:

€ One of the very basic things that the kids need to know is that they should learn what the depth markers are and how to read them. The water might look shallow due to the light effect, but it can be deeper than they are thinking. Therefore, they should never go beyond the depth marker that crosses their height unless they have their trainers or parents with them.

€ Teach your kids to test the pool water temperature before plunging into the pool. If the water is very cold it can shock the body, increase BP and pulse and might even slow down the muscles.

€ If the kids are swimming in the rooftop or the backyard pool, an adult like their babysitters, nannies or parents should always accompany them so that they can help the kids if there is any danger like muscle crump or fatigue while try are practicing their swimming lessons.

€ While the kids are playing around the pool area they should never go near the pool fences and they should not run as well near the pool side. A momentary lack of caution can lead to an accident at any time.

€ The kids should never push someone into the pool or jump into others as this can either hurt someone or themselves.

€ They should never eat or chew anything while they are swimming. Otherwise they can choke and loose breath.


€ While the kids are learning to dive into the pool, they should take it slowly while they are still trainees. A hard or unbalanced jump might make them hit the pool ground and hurt them pretty badly. Besides, it might as well create muscle pool that is very painful.
