We are continuing our series discussing some of the unwanted side effects of pool chemicals. Our previous article explored the most popular pool chemicals used to achieve pool water balance, maintain pool pH control and balance total alkalinity. Today, we will cover some ways to protect children from pool chemicals.
It’s imperative to note the importance of constantly supervising children whenever they are around a swimming pool. Kids can be very curious and might try to drink the water or touch the chemicals, which can lead to serious health consequences.
There are a few things you can do to help protect children from the unwanted side effects of pool chemicals:
- Keep them supervised at all times: This is probably the most important thing you can do. If you can’t watch them yourself, make sure there is always someone else nearby who can.
- Explain the dangers: Talk to your kids about why it’s important not to drink pool water or touch the pool chemicals. If they understand the risks, they’re less likely to try something dangerous.
- Use child-resistant packaging: Whenever possible, choose pool chemicals that come in child-resistant packaging. This will make it more difficult for kids to access them.
