Swimming Pool Accidents And Liabilities: What You Should Know

Owners must also be cautious, according to most cities, to make sure that their swimming pool is safe for accidental pool visitors as well. Many towns and cities demand that pools be surrounded by a fence with self-latching gates. In roughly 70% of child drownings, children were not expected to be in the pool at the time of their death. Not only for their own children but for children who may wander into their yards, homeowners must install dependable safety measures to minimize the danger of swimming pool accidents.

- Pool anti-entrapment equipment wasn’t installed or maintained. For example, all pools should have pool drain safety devices that prevent swimmers’ hair, limbs, or clothing from becoming trapped in the drainage system.
- Pool barriers that are lacking or broken can increase the danger of drowning.
- The lack of supervision (i.e., distracted lifeguard) or parental / adult care can result in terrible situations at swimming pools.
