Not Smart Enough for College (13)

Warmer weather is here again, and there’s no better time to blow the dust off the backyard pool. Indeed, with several months of wet, rollicking fun ahead of the entire family, it can be all-too-easy to forget about the difficulties of late and throw all caution to the wind. But of course, if you really want to have as much enjoyment as promised, you must pause to ensure that all is in order and that your family is, in fact, ready for the pool (and vice versa). So, let’s break down how your family can maximize pool time in the coming months.

Maximize Fun

Pool time is a fun time — or at least, it should be. So, make the most out of the warmer weather by looking into the best ways your family can enjoy your backyard watering hole.

  • Regardless of the season, one thing’s for certain: among the best ways to keep kids from boredom is through physical activity and play.

  • But of course, few activities are as fun and as perfect for the family as swimming.

  • Set your kids up to have the most fun in the water by guiding them to learn the nitty-gritty of swimming, so they make a healthy hobby out of it.

  • Throw in fun and safe pool games for the family, as well, to up the ante.

Maximize Safety

Of course, your time in the water will only be enjoyable when you put a premium on safety. So, make sure to support this fun family activity with the right safety precautions to avoid injuries, untoward incidents, and even illness.

  • Before you open it up for the warm weather, make sure to tackle swimming pool repairs to ensure uninterrupted fun for the season, as well as utmost safety.

  • Make sure that you have pool safety rules in place and that you sit down with the entire family, especially the kids, to reinforce them.

  • It’s a good idea to invest in pool safety equipment to keep your swimmers safe and comfortable in the water at all times.

  • Consider getting a pool cover to prevent untoward incidents when you’re not watching.

  • It’s also important to pay close attention to your pool’s disinfection team — that is, chlorine and pH levels — to ensure that it’s safe from viruses like COVID-19.

  • Wear sunscreen! SPF 30 is fine for most people, and can prevent you from experiencing the painful effects of a sunburn. Mayo Clinic notes that treatment involves taking pain relievers, cooling the skin, and using a moisturizer.

Maximize the Benefits

Having your own backyard pool promises seasons of fun for your family and loved ones, but really, the benefits go far beyond that. So make it a point to recognize the cool perks that you can get out of your pool to really make it a worthy investment.

  • The roster of cool perks you can get from having your own family pool can’t be beaten.

  • The entire family can look forward to enjoying a number of physical health benefits from swimming and from spending time outdoors.

  • It can also do wonders for your family’s mental health.

  • As a bonus, your own pool can add untold value to your family home.

Know that you will inevitably have more fun when you have the peace of mind to back it up. There’s no better way to ensure that than by maximizing pool safety and, by extension, the fun and benefits that it offers the entire family. And with that said, it’s bombs away!
