Consider putting in a fence
- Install a fence or gate around your pool to help ensure the safety of children and people requiring supervision.
- A gate featuring a highly placed lock can help to safeguard against small children gaining unsupervised access.
- Additionally, check that the pool or hot tub covers are in use and functioning properly.
- Please review local regulations to confirm requirements for pool fences, gates and covers.
- If your pool has a fenced pool, you can let travellers know by selecting that you have one in your property editor.
Provide rescue materials and references
- Make sure that a safety floatation device is in place before each new stay, and that it is visibly positioned near your pool for quick access in an emergency.
- Depth markers are also a great way to keep guests safe and protect against shallow-water diving.
Additional safety recommendations
- Consider installing an alarm that sounds each time a pool entrance is opened.
- Lastly, you can maximise peace of mind by posting safety and health information on your listing and at the pool, such as emergency phone numbers, CPR Instructions and ‘pool rules’ displaying potential hazards for persons who may be pregnant or who suffer from health conditions.
Adopting and practicing as many pool safety standards and regulations can help travellers to stay worry-free and create lasting memories.
