Taking Pool Safety Seriously
May 15 marks International Water Safety Day and the mid-point of National Water Safety Month
Sparkling-clean pool and spa water invites a healthy, active lifestyle. In all that we do, Pentair strives to help pool owners create a safer, fun and effortless experience for their family and friends.
As safety should always be a top priority, we are proud to sponsor the 2019 National Water Safety Month. This annual awareness campaign during the month of May by the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, with support from the National Recreation & Park Association, the American Red Cross and the World Waterpark Association, is perfectly timed at the start of pool season. It’s a great opportunity to remind us all of the importance of following pool safety measures—whether at home or a community pool. I encourage you to review their water safety tips with your family, and take the “Safe Swimmer’s Pledge” on their website.
As simple as it sounds, learning to swim is an important first step in pool safety. Studies have shown that taking part in formal swimming lessons reduces the risk of drowning among children aged 1 to 4 years.* That’s why we are working with the National Swimming Pool Foundation and its “Step Into Swim Campaign.” This 10-year initiative is dedicated to creating 1 million more swimmers, with an emphasis on bringing the life-saving skill of swimming to underserved populations and disadvantaged children. You can learn more about this important effort by downloading their white paper, “2018 Step Into Swim Report With Recommended Strategies for 2019 and Beyond.”
With summer just around the corner, we hope you’ll celebrate National Water Safety Month with us by making your pool a fun and safe place for you and your loved ones. Check out our Poolside Stories, and follow us on Facebook for safety tips throughout the month.
