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.

Kenneth Lee is your New York Home Inspector

Firstly, I would like to say, when I first spoke to Mr. Lee on the phone, he was very pleasant and courteous. He listened to me regarding my situation. I explained to him what I needed, and he was very responsive. I asked him pertinent and direct questions about his membership, licensing, etc., and he answered very honestly and without hesitation. When I met with Mr. Lee, who I now call Kenny, he was again just as pleasant and courteous and he was actually at the house that I am in contract with before I was, and he was already working. He requested that myself and my fiancee come with him during the inspection, so that we could see and understand his findings, and he was that way throughout the inspection. He made it very clear he was working for us, his clients and not anyone else. I was very pleased with his work, and I will highly recommend him to anyone in the metro area that is planning on purchasing a home now or in the future. Thanks again, Kenny. Celia C.
