Southern Illinois Pool and Spa along with Doughboy Want Your Family to Be Careful and Safe When Playing in Your Pool
Read our safety manual and follow our six safety steps. It can save lives in and around Doughboy swimming pools.
Play it safe with the 6 rules of pool safety!
- Swim and wade only. Never dive, jump or slide into the pool! Serious injuries could result from avoiding this rule. Paralysis and death could occur.
- Adult supervision is always required! An adult must control the activity of children swimming or playing around the pool area. No one should be permitted to swim alone. Even good swimmers can drown in a crisis.
- First-time users run the highest risk of injury! Teach the rules of pool safety to all users. Actively direct attention to the “warning” pool sign before allowing them to enter the pool.
- Electricity and water are a fatal mix! Keep all electrical radios, speakers and other appliances away from the swimming pool.
- Teasing, roughhousing and horseplay do not belong in the pool area! Do not allow anyone to climb, sit or stand on the top rails of the pool. Play safe games. Be courteous and careful.
- You should not permit alcohol or drugs at your pool. Keep anyone who is under the influence away from the pool area.
Shallow is when the water is under your chin. Deep is when the water is over your head.
Always think “safety first” and share your wisdom!
