Take a look further for a few vital pool safety precautions.
Create a Child-Friendly Area
Not every backyard party is kid-friendly, but if you’re having a pool party with kids this summer, you’ll want to take extra precautions.
An inground backyard pool should have the proper safety equipment available. Plus, parents should be watching young children at all times.
If you have your spa on during a pool party, don’t allow young kids in it if the temperature is too hot. A high heat spa can cause dehydration and overheating in young children.
For safety, keep the water temperature around the 80s.
Show Guests How to Enter and Exit Safely
This might sound obvious, but for guests who have never been to your home, showing them how to enter and exit the pool and spa safely is crucial.
Water can make surfaces slippery so enforce strict rules. For example, don’t allow guests to jump in or stand on the edge of a spa.
Alcoholic beverages often accompany a backyard pool party. Even if this isn’t the case, drinking water and staying hydrated are essential. You’ll be in the sun or a hot tub with a lot of heat.
If possible, drink water every 15-20 minutes when sweating outdoors, even while in pool water.
Avoid the Use of Glass
There are different types of pools, but no matter which you choose, you should always avoid using glass in or around it. Instead, use plastic cups to prevent the glass from breaking inside the pool or spa.
Broken glass is hard to spot in the water. You might have to drain the entire pool or spa to find it.
When you add these safety elements to your backyard party, the last step is to have fun!
Create an outdoor party atmosphere with a great theme. Add some outside lighting, make a playlist, and offer delicious food and drinks to your guests.
Start Planning the Perfect Backyard Party
Now that you have the ultimate party backyard with the perfect pool and spa and all of the pool safety precautions put in place, it’s time to start planning the party.
