St. Paul, MN, June 19, 2008 --(PR.com)-- PcPOOLS is one of America’s leading direct marketers of above ground pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners announces a new pool safety checklist. PcPools takes swimming pool safety very seriously, selling a range of pool safety products.

Marketing Director Ted Robinson had this to say about pool safety, "Pool safety is something that sometimes can be overlooked by many new and current pool owners. However, pool safety should be taken very seriously. We at PcPools, have put together a checklist for swimming pool owners to look at prior to enjoying a safe swimming season."

Never allow your youngster to swim alone without any adult supervision. It is quite common to develop a cramp underwater, or for accidents like hitting your head while diving for example, to occur. It is paramount that there should be persons around to help in such situations.

Do not allow children with no knowledge of swimming in or around the pool. For good pool safety make sure that all kids above the age of 4 attend a certified swimming class, or at least learn basic flotation techniques and life saving techniques in case of accidents. Children should always be accompanied by their parents in the pool.

Enclose your pool with high fences, which can be locked. Do not leave the pool open and accessible since children can fall inside. Keep your pool safe, and keep your kids away from the poolside.

Avoid leaving your kids alone even with small portable pools or water bodies like buckets, fountains, and barrels. There is always a danger of drowning occurring even in small bodies of water.

In case of a backyard swimming pool, make sure that the pool cover is completely lifted off the pool. Do not partially open the pool. Also make sure that your child does not walk over the pool cover.

Spas and Hot Tubs must also be avoided, especially in the case of younger children who are susceptible to overheating.

For good pool safety, you can make sure that there is always a life saving flotation device handy near the pool. Also, every parent should be knowlegable in basic CPR techniques in case of any accident.

Last, but not the least, to ensure swimming pool safety, be observant. Watch what your kids are up to, and supervise their activities. Never leave them alone even for one second.
