We all know the “typical” pool rules: no swimming without a grown-up, no running around the pool, and no diving in the shallow end. But here are some more pool rules to keep in mind this summer:

Protecting your family around the pool means more than just keeping an eye on swimming kids. It is also important to make sure the pool is a safe place when no one is around. Layers of protection, like a non-climbable fence with a self-locking gate, can keep children who wander off from falling into the pool.
