Your Pool And Your Pets

A pool is a great way to cool down in the hot Darwin summers, and if you’re a pet owner, then it can be an ideal way for your four-legged friends to do the same.

But when it comes to having pets around your pool, there are certain precautions you need to take to ensure their safety and yours.

At Hi-Tech Pools & Spas, we want to ensure your pool is a fun and safe place for you and your pets. That’s why we recommend you make sure your pool is pet-proofed.

How To Ensure Your Pool Is Safe For Pets

  1. Install A Fence: Make sure your pool area has a secure, pet-proofed fence that your pet won’t be able to get through.
  2. Keep the Water Clean: Pets can bring dirt into the pool, so make sure you regularly check and maintain the water quality to ensure it’s safe for swimming.
  3. Invest in Safety Equipment: Invest in life jackets or other safety gear designed specifically for pets, as this can help protect them if they fall into the pool accidentally.
  4. Train your Pet: It’s essential to train your pet not to go near or jump into the pool when you’re not around, as this could lead to an accident or injury.
  5. Be Vigilant: Always keep an eye on your pet when they’re around the pool, as a few seconds of not paying attention could result in a tragedy.
