To further our mission of making pools safer for everyone – especially children – we take great pride in providing education and research which can move pool safety in the right direction. Information is a powerful tool, and simply arming people with worthwhile info and valuable statistics will make it more likely that they’ll make good decisions moving forward. With that in mind, we have several education and research-based initiatives which we are excited to grow in the years ahead.
Pool Safety Literature
It is easy enough to have a pool installed on your property. Basically, it comes down to picking a spot for the pool, contacting a construction company, and writing a check. But none of those steps have anything to do with pool safety tips or pool safety rules. As a pool owner, you should understand the basics of pool safety, which is where we come in. Our pool safety flyer is a great start as you build up your education on this important topic.
One of the problems we see in this area is that people want their pools to be all about fun – so they ignore or avoid the safety component. Sure, talking about safety isn’t as fun as playing in the water with your family, but fun is actually at the heart of our safety focus. We want everyone to have the proper safety steps in place so they can simply have fun when using the pool. By reducing the risk of a pool-related accident, we hope to provide you with peace of mind, which will only add to your enjoyment of the pool.
Drowning and Other Statistics
In order to understand a topic as serious as pool safety, it is sometimes necessary to look at some uncomfortable numbers. No one wants to talk about drownings or serious pool injuries, as these are tragic events. However, by taking a hard look at the numbers, we can see that this really is a serious issue which deserves our attention. Pool drowning statistics are notoriously difficult to collect, but we are going to do our best to present you with a clear picture of this safety issue.
Product Research and Consumer Protection
We take this last point very seriously. While we want people to purchase and use pool safety equipment, taking that step is only going to be beneficial if the equipment is well-made and serves an important purpose. Sadly, there is equipment on the market today which simply isn’t going to do the job it was designed to do. By conducting product research and offering consumer advice, we hope to clearly separate the good from the bad.
If you have a question about a specific pool safety product, feel free to contact us. We can’t guarantee that we will have an opinion to offer about every product on the market, but we do our best to keep up with what is popular and current. Our pool safety research is unbiased, thorough, and completely focused on the needs and safety of the general public.
At PSF, we take great pride in installing a pool fence for a family that may not have been able to afford one otherwise. Those are enjoyable experiences, and they are at the core of what we set out to do as an organization. With that said, we also value our education and research work. This part of the operation is important as well, and we hope it serves you well. With any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact us right away. Thanks for visiting!
