POOL Safety Rules 

POOL USE SAFETY RULES

It is assumed and intended that pool users will exercise appropriate personal judgment and responsibility and those pool owners will create and enforce rules of behavior and warnings appropriate for safe pool use.

CAUTION — diving is not allowed into any aboveground or on-ground swimming pool.

Avoid tragic accidents in your aboveground or on-ground pool:

Diving is not allowed from the pool edge or from a diving board or a jump board into any aboveground or on-ground swimming pool.

We provide you with decals warning swimmers not to dive into the swimming pool. It is important that you apply these warning decals to the vinyl liner in your pool. Follow the "How to Apply The DANGER NO DIVING Decals" instructions packaged inside the carton along with the pool liner.

CAUTION — diving is never allowed into the shallow end of any swimming pool.

Avoid tragic head, neck and spinal injury accidents that could result in death or paralysis:

Never allow headfirst diving into the shallow end of any swimming pool. We provide you with decals designed to warn swimmers not to dive into the shallow end of the swimming pool. It is important that you put these "DANGER NO DIVING" decals onto the vinyl liner in your pool. Follow the "How to Apply The DANGER NO DIVING Decals" instructions packaged inside the carton along with the pool liner.

CAUTION — diving is never allowed from the sides of any swimming pools.

A diver requires a set amount of unobstructed water directly in front of his/her dive path. The minimum amount of unobstructed water in front of his/her dive path cannot be achieved from the sides of the swimming pool. We provide you with decals designed to warn swimmers not to dive from the side of any swimming pool. It is important that you put these decals onto the vinyl liner in your pool. Follow the "How to Apply The DANGER NO DIVING Decals" instructions packaged inside the carton along with the pool liner.

CAUTION -- make sure all pool users know which end is shallow and which is deep.

The American National Standard for Residential Inground Swimming Pools — ANSI/NSPI-5-1995 codebook requires that there be a Rope and Float line installed on all residential swimming pools. This is a continuous line not less than one-fourth inch (1/4") in diameter, which is supported by buoys and attached to opposite sides of the pool to separate the deep and shallow ends. The Rope and Float line shall be installed across the width of the pool generally parallel to, and at a minimum of 1 foot and a maximum of 2 feet on the shallow side of the change in floor slope (end of shallow play area). The rope anchor device shall be permanently attached to the pool wall, coping or deck in a manner which provides for their reinstallation should they be required to be removed for maintenance or repair. If your liner is a replacement liner (rehabilitation) then the Rope and Float must be re-installed after the installation of the new liner.

If your pool is a Type 0, which means no diving is allowed, make sure pool users are informed of that and do not allow them to dive head first into your pool from any location. If your pool is a Pool Type I, II, III, IV or V and there is a code-approved diving board or jump board installed, make sure you inform pool users that they may only dive into the pool from the end of the dive or jump board. Also inform pool users that when they dive headfirst off of a dive or jump board they must only dive in a direction which is straight ahead towards the shallow end of the pool, which should be in a direct line in front of the dive or jump board. Inform all pool users what the rules for safe pool use are.

CAUTION — children drown in swimming pools because no one is watching.

One of the main reasons children drown in pools is due to no one watching them. Make sure you close and lock the pool gate when the pool is not in use. Make sure you or a responsible person is the designated kid-watcher so that no child ever drowns in your pool. There is NO substitute for constant supervision, MOMS and DADS! Remember kids should never swim alone!

CAUTION — don’t allow people who are under the influence of alcohol to use the pool.

People take risks and do stupid things when under the influence of alcohol. Avoid tragic accidents -- designate your swimming pool an Alcohol-Free Zone.

CAUTION — guidelines for the use of diving boards and slide equipment:

ALL DIVING BOARDS AND SLIDE EQUIPMENT, whether in existing pools or new pools, must be installed or reinstalled according to the April 25, l995 American National Standards Institute ANSI/NSPI-5-l995 codebook for Residential Inground Swimming Pools. Your pool’s interior dimensions must fall within the approved interior dimensions for the Minimum Diving Water Envelope. The object of this standard is to provide recommended minimum guidelines for the design, equipment, installation and use of residential inground swimming pools.
