May is National Water Safety Month


The pool is the center of family activity during the summer. People of all ages swim, play games, enjoy delicious food and make lifelong memories together. Since the poolscape is such a busy activity hub for many families, sometimes simple, but critical safety measures can be overlooked.
May is National Water Safety Month, an annual awareness campaign coordinated by  the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals with support from the National Recreation & Park Association, the American Red Cross and the World Waterpark Association. We in the poolfyi community want to help you ensure you make many wonderful, safe memories this pool season.  For the next five weeks, I will share safety tips here in the Poolside Stories section. I will cover tips for children and adults, as well pool equipment safety.

Also, please join Pentair on Twitter and Facebook. I will share water safety tips there too. Poolfyi is your community and we want to hear from you. Please leave comments. I look forward to chatting with you poolside!
