Swimming Pool Safety

Ensuring the safety is job #1 of every swimming pool owner.  Taking educated steps to ensure your family and friends make safe and sensible use of your swimming pool just makes sense:  For everyone!

Be aware of the use of alcohol or other drugs that might impair the judgement or ability of swimmers and a ‘take away their keys to the pool’, it’s what good friends do!  

At Pool Fits, whether it is an Aboveground, Onground or Inground Pool, the safe use of your Swimming Pool is a primary concern.   Accordingly, we’ve pulled together and organized several safety resources for you here in our Knowledge Center.

Can COVID-19 virus spread thgrough pools and hot tubs?

There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disenfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivage the virus that causes COVID-19.
