IMPORTANT: A number of very important items that are essential for the safe use of your pool may not be visible in many of the photographs, either because of perspective or camera angle, or because they were removed for photographic purposes.These items include:
Safety ropes, which should remain in place at all times
“No Diving”signs are provided by the manufacturer and should be installed in accordance with instructions included on the coping or liner, where they are clearly visible
An area sign is provided by the manufacturer and must be permanently and conspicuously axed in the pool area where all users can see it
Necessary means of exit and entry into the pool
Fencing with a self-latching gate, and other barriers that can assist in preventing unsupervised access to the pool by children
Approved drain covers and other devices to protect against suction entrapment
Minimum required inlets and returns to ensure proper water circulation
Appropriate inpool lighting if the pool will be used after dark.
All of these devices should be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, ANSI/NSPI or ANSI/APSP standards, as well as state and local statutes and codes.
Diving boards and slides require minimum depths and distances and must only be installed and used in strict compliance with the equipment manufacturer’s specications and ANSI/NSPI or ANSI/APSP standards. If the pool is labeled by us as NON-DIVING, then diving equipment may not be installed and any such equipment must be removed before the pool is used.
Smart pool owners always think safety rst.They take specic steps to ensure that their family, friends and guests are knowledgeable about the safe and sensible use of their pool.They also:
ensure that their pool is never used unless there is adequate supervision
ensure that their pool is kept in good repair and is not used when there is a missing or broken drain cover or other component
ensure that ALL CHILDREN using their pool are supervised constantly
that anyone under the inuence of alcohol, drugs or stimulants that would impair their abilities or judgement does not use the pool
ensure that their pool is protected by appropriate barriers to unsupervised entry including fencing with self-latching gates, covers, alarms, etc.
To assist you, a number of very important items of safety literature are included with each pool.We must insist that you read each item carefully and follow the instructions. These are:
Pool Owners Safety Handbook
APSP “Sensible Way” Book
Vinyl Swimming Pool Liner–Warranty
