One of the most captivating and seducing scenes out there are ones of pools of water. Water is essential to our life, so naturally, we are drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Water is very dangerous, however, as captivating as it may be, extreme caution must be displayed when around bodies of water.
If we are anything alike, when you come across a body of water, whether it be a pool or a lake, it takes a good moment to sit there and appreciate it. But as mentioned earlier, caution should be in your mind at all times.
I consulted with a pool service company in Charlotte, North Carolina about water safety. There are some general tips and suggestions that will keep you safe when around bodies of water of any kind. Keep these tips in mind and they just could save yours or someone else’s life.
- Be conscious of your surroundings. The majority of incidents involving water are because of carelessness. If you are spending any time around water, please make sure you appreciate it for what it is and be very mindful of the present dangers.
- Bring someone with you. It’s very important that if something were to happen, you have support or help right there with you. Most accidents involving water could be avoided if supervision or another person had been there watching.
- Be aware of the type of water your swimming in. Pools of water come in all shapes and sizes, whether you’re swimming in a stream, river, lake, swimming pool, or the ocean, you should be very mindful of the existing dangers within that pool of water. Oceans are subject to riptides and currents whereas swimming pools are protected from these conditions but still contain their own hazards such as pool chemicals and other neglections.
- Take swimming lessons. A lot of incidents that happen in the water happen because those involved aren’t the most qualified swimmers. Don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to be Michael Phelps to enjoy a nice swim in a lake or pool but it makes all the difference in the world if you know how to tread water or just swim in general. If you ever get caught in a riptide in the ocean, you must be a competent swimmer to help yourself. If not? You risk being swept out to sea for the sharks. And I’m not talking about Mark Cuban.
- Don’t eat 45 mins before swimming. I know this is a common rule but it’s so very important. The last thing you want to do is go for a swim and end up cramping in the water.
While this is not the end all be all list of water safety, there are a few golden nuggets in this post that could help keep you or a friend alive when an incident occurs. Be mindful of these tips and keep them in the back of your mind until a day that they are needed.
