Here are the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s seven steps that save lives around pools and spas:
Pool Safely Step 1: Constant supervision is an important step to ensure safety around pools and spas.
Pool Safely Step 2: Making sure pools and spas have secure fencing and gates to keep children safe is an important safety step.
Pool Safely Step 3: Keeping pools or spas covered is an important safety step.

Pool Safely Step 5: Pool and spa safety drain covers are an important safety step and are required by law.
Pool Safely Step 6: Drownings and close calls are eight times more likely to happen to kids who can’t swim.
