Pool Safety Inspections: Preparing for Summer with Children and Pets in Mind

The sun is climbing higher each day, the air is getting warmer, and soon the sounds of children laughing and splashing will fill backyards across Johannesburg. Summer is on the horizon, and as homeowners, it’s our duty to ensure our pools are not only a source of fun but also safe for everyone who uses them, including our four-legged family members with professional Pool Safety Inspections by CJPI.

Why Pool Safety Inspections are Crucial

Every year, we hear heartbreaking stories of children and pets who fall victim to pool-related accidents. The saddest part is, many of these accidents are preventable. A pool safety inspection is not just a cursory glance at your pool area but a comprehensive examination to ensure it adheres to the highest safety standards.

Children and Pool Safety:


    • Fencing: One of the main safety measures for children is effective fencing. Fences should be at least four feet high and have a self-latching gate that’s out of reach of young children.

    • Drain Covers: Powerful pool drains can pose a danger. Ensure they have safety covers to prevent entrapment.

    • Alarms: If you have young children, consider installing an alarm on your pool door to notify you if they venture out without supervision.

Pet Safety Around the Pool


    • Barrier Systems: Not all pets can swim. Barrier systems can prevent them from accidentally slipping into the water.

    • Ramps: If your pet likes swimming, provide them with a ramp to ensure they can easily get out of the water.

    • Training: Teaching your dog basic pool safety, like where to exit, can be a life-saving decision.
