Health Tip: Watch Children Near Pool Drains
-- Parents should always supervise children closely in and around pools. Drains can be particularly dangerous.
The PoolSafely.gov website suggests:
- Tell children they should never play near drains or suction outlets.
- Never allow children to get into a pool or spa tub with a loose, broken or missing drain cover.
- Bathing suits, limbs, hair and jewelry can become trapped in pool drains.
- Always locate the emergency vacuum shutoff before anyone gets into a spa tub.
