Pool safety re­minder

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS -

AHEAD of the sum­mer, wa­ter safety ex­perts are re­mind­ing pool own­ers to un­der­take safety checks of their pool and sur­rounds, to help pre­vent drown­ings and near-fa­tal­i­ties. Pool­w­erx Fraser Coast owner, Martin Hansen said along with pool safety checks, own­ers should be main­tain­ing their pools through­out the year, to en­sure that the pool’s wa­ter qual­ity was safe for swim­ming.

“Pool own­ers need to have their pool wa­ter tested reg­u­larly both in sum­mer and win­ter, as poor wa­ter qual­ity can lead to far worse prob­lems than just hav­ing green wa­ter, with ear, nose and throat in­fec­tions all side ef­fects of swim­ming in a dirty pool,” he said.
