A backyard pool can be wonderfully beneficial for kids. Swimming is not only fun, it's terrific exercise. In addition, a pool can set the scene for hours of quality family time, as well as playtime with friends. However, having a pool is also a huge responsibility. According to the Centers for Disease Control, drowning is the 2nd leading cause of accidental death in children age 1 to 14.
An afternoon spent at a swimming pool or spa is a great way to enjoy time with the family, especially for energetic kids who love the water. Yet it’s important for parents and children to always "Pool Safely" while they’re in the water.
