Here in sunny Las Vegas swimming pools are a great way to cool off and spend time together outdoors. Like all outdoor activities its easy to get lost in the excitement, however, it’s important to discuss and understand the basics of pool safety.

It all starts during the Design Phase

Most homeowners get a bit of tunnel vision on the shape, color, and amenities of their new custom swimming pool. There are quite a few considerations that ideally would begin during the blueprint and design phase of the process. So let’s stay excited and learn more about the safety considerations were facing moving forward.

Step Tile Visibility

Variation in pool depth is a lot of fun and great for creating a seating area in your swimming pool. However, its imperative to include visual markers for each step as the water distortion can easily hide and the actual depth. If you really want to elevate the appearance of your steps you can create visual markers using tiles!

A clear line of sight

We love our kids and it is important we keep them in mind when building a swimming pool. We want to keep the pool visible from your seating area and outdoor cooking space if you have one. Be mindful of where you place large planters, and landscaping features in relation to pathways and decks were people will be walking.

Let their be light

It’s best to design your outdoor living space with plenty of light sources so that even if the party runs into the evening you can still swim and entertain into the night!

Swimming Pool’s through History

Swimming pools and watering holes have been a part of our history dating all the back to 2600 BC. The first society to create more elaborate Swimming Pools was the ancient Mohenjodaro in Pakistan. They created the Great Baths of Mohenjodaro that featured terraced decks that nearly match our modern variations that exist today.

Our journey through pool history takes us to our next great water Swimming Pool innovators that can be found in ancient Rome and Greece. Swimming was a big part of their culture, being taught as soon as boys were old enough to attend elementary school. This passion for swimming pools led to incredible innovations, including the first heated swimming pool created by Gaius Maecenas in Rome.

Heated ancient swimming pool

Swimming pools certainly improved as humanity grew and expanded, however, the did not become popular until the 19th century. The Olympic Games swimming races were among the athletic events that helped increase the popularity of swimming pools.

America did not have a single swimming pool until 1868 when the Cabot Street bath in Boston was built. It was built to serve a neighborhood that was built with very few baths. This swimming pool helped spark America’s interest in swimming pools and would become the ember that lit the flames of innovation.

As we enter the 20th century modern technology helped create incredible developments that would rocket swimming pools to a new level. Developments that include filtration and chlorination systems that would ensure pool water kept clean and hygienic. Before these Swimming Pool innovations, the only way to clean pool water was to completely drain and refill the entire pool.

Pool Cleaning and why Chlorine is necessary

Ever get out of your swimming pool, and get serious irritation to your eyes, or even feel a bit ill? Well, there might be something missing that is essential to get rid of those issues you may be experiencing. There is a common myth that chlorine is pretty scary to deal with when it comes to enjoying your swimming pool for the summer. Although, we’re here to debunk that myth as chlorine is actually vital to the quality of the water in your pool and why it may be necessary to consider pool cleaning. Not to mention, without chlorine, the height of micro-organisms, algae, and bacteria grow at a rapid rate which can be damaging to your overall experience when wanting to just take a simple dip, or throw that amazing pool party you’ve been planning for weeks. 

Well, how does chlorine exactly help my experience? Please know, we are more than happy to provide some clarity as chlorine-based pools are sanitizers that get rid of those pesky germs known to cause waterborne diseases. Without chlorine, there are tons of external causes like the general environment that can include windblown debris and dust, rain that can contain spores of algae, and other sources that are purely unsanitary if not taken care of. Now technically, you can swim in water without chlorine, but only on the contingency that you have fresh water and a little over a week to enjoy your swimming pool as bacteria will follow shortly after. Please also note, anyone who is swimming in a pool that is not cleaned with chlorine would have to ensure minimal wear in their choice to swim with and personal hygiene including taking a shower prior before taking a dip safely. 

To continue on the topic of personal hygiene, there is also a conflict between chlorine and irritants that are caused by swimmers. This is more formally known as a term called “chloramines”. Another misconception in regards to chlorine is that chloramines are the actual cause and reason for those issues that can be concerning after getting out from your swim. Those who urinate in the water or don’t take personal hygiene to account as a routine can, unfortunately, distort chlorine as those substances don’t exactly mix well together. This can be a result of additional chlorine to be an added routine to your swimming pool to banish those chloramines that are created. Remember, chlorine is your best friend when it comes to replenishing the health of the water in your pool and we know how hard you worked getting everyone together for a swim this Saturday. 

Please also know, we understand there’s a balance to the amount of chlorine that is added in the water which is why we ensure to properly check the right proportion needed for the process of pool cleaning. If this made you a bit curious about what else your swimming pool may need or could be missing, please check our page that offers all of our services. Again, we are excited to be apart of the enjoyment to your swimming pool this summer, and the next. Please call (702) 839-9265 to make sure you’re stress-free for future barbecue parties! We are more than looking forward to speaking with you.
