Safety in the Pool on holidays

When the temperature heats up, we seek a cooling tonic and that often comes in the form of a swim. This post is about safety in the pool. There is the sea to cool off in and the cooler temperatures of open swimming in lakes to enjoy too. Increasingly, we are buying swimming pools to enjoy in the garden too, with pool and landscaping design becoming far more commonplace in family homes.Unfortunately, we aren’t always prepared for the cold water shock that comes with plunging into a deep swimming pool, lake or the sea.

Even strong swimmers can get into trouble quickly in cold water so it pays to be safe around water, whether that is a pool in the back garden or a dip in the lake. Hence, you can find the best above ground pool and
install it at your backyard

    This is such an important topic to raise awareness of – we live by the sea so it’s something I’m always conscious of what with the tide & changing currents #MMBC

    I am always on such high alert around to pool on holiday (and the paddling pool at home). I know what to look for and can sometimes be a touch over eager with my adjustments of the girls swimming but this sort of thing really freaks me out. Knowing how to stay safe and keep the kids safe is vital. Thank you for joining #ThursdayTeam
