Above Ground Pool Safety Behavioral

 

NO DIVING

  • Never dive, flip or jump into this above ground swimming pool. It is too shallow for safe diving. Ladders, decks, handrails and top ledges (or anything else) are not to be used for diving. You can break your neck!
  • Most serious permanent injuries, paralysis or deaths occur when dives are made from pool decks. Please read your four pages “Mandatory Reading” Booklet supplied with this pool before you purchase or fabricate a deck for your pool.

 

NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

  • Never use your swimming pool if you have been drinking alcoholic beverages or taking medications or drugs. Shock, unconsciousness, permanent injury or drowning could result. Don’t drink and dive!

KEEP WATER CLEAN

  • Always keep your pool water clean so that the bottom is visible at all times. Individuals must be able to see that the water is too shallow for diving, and must be able to see small children in the pool!

 

NO SWIMMING AFTER DARK

  • Never use your swimming pool after dark or when you cannot see the shallow depth of the water or the safety decals or signs. If you ignore this, you have the sole responsibility for providing adequate lighting. Because installation conditions vary, you must consult with a licensed electrical contractor or your power company to provide adequate lighting. You must also comply with all national and local electric codes.
  • Never cut holes in your pool wall to install lights or anything else unless the hole locations are factory installed. Failure to obey this warning could cause structural damage to the pool wall, violently releasing large bodies of water. Wall structural failures may cause serious injury, electrocution or property damage.

 

NO SLIDES OR BOARDS

  • Never install a slide or diving board on your above ground pool.

NO HORSEPLAY

  • Never allow horseplay in or around the pool.

DON’T STAND ON TOP LEDGES

  • Do not stand, sit or step on pool top ledge. These prohibited activities may break the ledge or wall of the pool.

POST WARNING SIGNS

  • Always post your “Warning” signs and/or decals in plain sight around your above ground pool. Always insist that first time users and children understand and obey all safety instructions.
