Many times I have been asked about what particular time of the year is my favorite and I always have the same reply; it has always been summer. You might be wondering why so I would tell you now the reason why. Actually, if you look at all the seasons of the year, summer is the only time of the year that people wouldn't want anything but to get the hell out of their home sweet homes and head out to swimming pools or to the beach. That's my thing; I would rather stay on the pool rather than being locked up inside my room on a hot summer afternoon. I know lots of people would agree with me.

And speaking of swimming pools, you can't simply turn it down. It's the best place to be when summer comes. You couldn't possibly enumerate ALL of the things that you could do on the pool, it's simply unlimited. And the fun that it brings is incomparable. That is why people from all over the world would definitely agree with what I am trying to say and they definitely would choose it over any other destination. Whether it is public pools or private pools, you know that it would only bring you the same amount of fun under the heat of the summer sun.

Owning your own pool however is something that should be taken seriously. Many factors need to be considered when you own a pool. Not only that maintaining the pool's functionality and cleanliness is a daunting and difficult task, keeping the pool safe is also very critical. To lessen the risks that are included when on a swimming pool, here are some of the safety tips that you could follow:

- It is important that there is someone among you who knows CPR and other life-saving routines in case somebody drowns. We're not wishing on it but we have to be prepared for the worse things that might happen. Remember that prevention is always a million times better.

- If you have your own swimming pool on the house, it is important that you surround it with a fence on its perimeter. The fence should be at least 5 foot high to prevent your kids from running of the pool and to the road. Also, make sure that it is tough enough not to break easily.

- Rescue equipment should always be available and present. Again, this is related to being prepared for the worse. You don't know when it would come so better be prepared when it does.

- Inflatable floating toys are cute but are not always recommended. It's always good to have life vests because these are legit lifesaving stuff and you are going to need it if you have kids. - If you have kids under 4 years old, they definitely are not ready to swim. Have them accompanied with an adult when on the pool to keep them safe.
