Safety Guidelines for Home Pools

Staying Safe in Residential Pools

Adding as many water safety steps as possible is the best way to assure a safe and fun experience in a residential swimming pool or spa. Parents and families can build on their current safety practices by adopting water safety steps at home pools and spas.



These are safety steps you can adopt at your residential pool or spa:

Staying Close, Being Alert and Watching Children in and Around the Pool

Learning and Practicing Water Safety Skills

Having the Appropriate Equipment for Your Pool or Spa

Staying Safe in Residential Pools

Swimming pools should always be happy places. Unfortunately, each year thousands of American families confront swimming pool tragedies— drownings and near-drownings of young children. These tragedies are preventable. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) handbook offers guidelines for pool barriers that can help prevent most submersion incidents involving young children. This handbook is designed for use by owners, purchasers, and builders of residential pools, spas, and hot tubs.

The swimming pool barrier guidelines are not a CPSC standard and are not mandatory requirements. While these guidelines are not the sole recommendation to minimize pool drownings of young children, the Commission believes, however, that the safety features recommended in this handbook will help make pools safer.
