Ensuring Pool Safety & Proper Maintenance

June 4, 2024

Ensuring pool safety and proper maintenance is crucial for property managers overseeing residential or commercial properties. Prioritizing these aspects not only enhances the enjoyment of the pool but also safeguards against accidents and liabilities.

Pool Safety Tips:

  1. Install Barriers and Alarms: Ensure the pool area is enclosed by a fence with a self-closing, self-latching gate to prevent unauthorized access. Pool alarms can provide an additional layer of security, alerting you to unexpected entries.
  2. Supervision and Signage: Always supervise pool activities, and display clear signage indicating depth markers, pool rules, and emergency procedures. Employ lifeguards if the pool is frequently used.
  3. Safety Equipment: Keep life-saving equipment, such as life rings, reaching poles, and first-aid kits, readily accessible. Ensure all staff are trained in CPR and emergency response.

Maintenance Tips:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Skim the pool daily to remove debris, and vacuum the pool floor weekly. Brush the walls and tiles to prevent algae buildup.
  2. Water Quality Management: Test the water’s pH, chlorine, and alkalinity levels regularly, ideally twice a week, to maintain a balanced and safe swimming environment. Shock the pool periodically to eliminate contaminants.
  3. Equipment Inspection: Routinely check pool pumps, filters, and heaters for proper operation. Replace or repair any malfunctioning equipment promptly to prevent larger issues.
  4. Chemical Storage: Store pool chemicals in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, and ensure they are clearly labeled and securely locked away from unauthorized access.

By following these safety and maintenance tips, property managers can ensure a safe, clean, and inviting pool environment for all users, while also protecting the property from potential hazards and costly repairs.

I Get What You’re Saying

You never know who’s going to walk through the front door when you work in a leasing office. In this case, a couple looking for a new place to call home, had a slight difference of opinion on which floor plan they’d need for their growing family. I love how the leasing director helped take some of the tension out of what could have otherwise been a stressful situation.
