- Swimming Pool and spa safety is of the utmost importance to Clear Viz Pool.
- Swimming pools and spas can be the center of family fun and enjoyment, and provide a healthy, relaxing recreational opportunity. We encourage you to use your swimming pool and spa responsibly and often.
- Swimming pools and spas also come with inherent risks. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that about ten people die daily in drowning accidents.
- Children ages one to four have the highest drowning rates, and most of these drownings happen in home swimming pools.
- Drowning events are tragic, very real, frequently preventable, and are much more than just statistics. These are people’s lives.
We highly recommend that multiple “layers of protection” be implemented, as well as removing all toys and other temptations from the pool/spa area.
Safety comes first. It's a way of life, especially around the pool. Not just for kids, but for everyone.

This means that your pool, spa, or hot tub is equipped with several devices to delay unsupervised access or to warn of a child's presence. See this article for more information about Layers of Protection for consideration from APSP.
