Texas pools are an aquatic sanctuary for children and adults desperately trying to escape sizzling temperatures. The focal point for adventure, cooling off, and relaxation, home pools are appreciated and adored. Perhaps in all of that fun and adoration, pool safety is neglected. It is important that parents study and implement safety pool tips to keep their children from harm.
Children do not have the ability to process or recognize impending danger as adults do, like drowning. Start the summer off with a refresher’s course in home pool safety from an article posted on Yahoo News online courtesy of PRWEB, which detailed safety tips provided by Alarm System Report. Here a few to consider:
- Before allowing your children to enter the pool area and pool, make sure you have a mobile phone with you in case of an emergency. Always provide constant supervision.
- If your pool is fenced in, it is critical to remove chairs, fallen tree limbs, and other reachable items children use to climb over, gaining access into the pool.
- Make sure to remove all toys and attractive items from the pool when not in use. Floating toys entice children, causing them to fall into the pool.
It is wise to take a CPR course in the event your child is unable to respond. You can never be too prepared.

Triple-digit temperatures threaten Texans with the prospect of heat strokes as the sweltering heat is expected to proceed through October.
Heat strokes cause 400 deaths annually in the United States, with 3,442 deaths between 1999 and 2003. And as summer temperatures continue to escalate with passing years, heat strokes are expected to increase.

Harnessing the Sun
Across the nation, people are becoming more aware of the environment and trying to find ways to preserve our natural resources. Solar energy has been a popular source of power for the energy conscious and recent studies have shown that it can also be used to heat pool water.
The use of solar panels has recently been discovered that harnessing the suns energy can also be used to power pool pumps. A Hawaiian condo was the first commercial pool to solely use solar power. They saw extreme changes in their electric bill; it went from about $1400 a month to $145 a month.
According to a study by the Solar Energy Industries Association, nearly 30,000 solar pool heating costs run from $4000 to $6000 a year. If installed correctly, homeowners should see a return on their investment in approximately two years.
For more information about solar power energy or other energy saving services, contact the pool experts from Seahorse Pools and Spas at their Fort Worth location at (817) 440-4924 or their Granbury location at (817) 591-1927.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation announced earlier this year that they will fine pool service companies for fraudulent claims stating that they are licensed to perform electrical work. Companies will only be allowed to employ licensed electrical contractors.
David Gonzalez, Compliance Manager at the TDLR in Austin, Texas, states you cannot offer to perform electrical installations without the proper contracting license. Pool companies will now be required to a Residential Appliance Installer’s License or employ staff that holds this license.
Many pool service companies who’ve complied with the law say that this is a good thing because they can’t be underbid by unlicensed workers anymore. Many believe that this crackdown will close gaps from past years of inconsistency.
For more information about licensing, contact the Ft. Worth Swimming Pool Company, Seahorse Pool & Spas at 817-440-4924.
