Children should not be permitted to use the pool without adult supervision.
People with long hair must tie it back to keep it from being pulled into the filter & drain.
Handrails & non-slip surfaces will help to minimize the risk of slipping and falling.
Never use any kind of electrical appliance or devise while using the pool.
Never use your pool during sever weather conditions (i.e. electrical storms, tornadoes, etc.)
