Summer is a fun time to socialize with family and friends. For many, there is nothing that says summer quite like a pool party. If you have just installed a swimming pool, you will hopefully have updated your Metro Atlanta Georgia Homeowner Insurance policy to reflect the change. Also remember that as a pool owner, it is important to provide a safe environment for guests. To ensure a great party every time, follow a few basic safety tips.
- If children are going to be attending the party, it is essential that there be a dedicated adult, or two or three, watching the pool at all times.
- Water safety is vital for young ones, but children may not be the only ones at risk. Alcohol and pools generally do not mix too well, so keep a careful watch over your guests in case anyone is inclined to drink and dive.
- Be sure to be aware of any possible hazards. A broken glass or hot grills are also potential risks. A garden hose or pool toys left lying close to a pool might trip someone up – and over!
- Remember too, that anyone who drinks too much may legally be your responsibility, even after they leave the party, so be careful to help any intoxicated guest to share a ride with a sober driver.
