Time to Upgrade Your Pool's Safety System


At a transitional time of year like now, while many aquatic centers are preparing to close for the season, or perform routine cleaning and maintenance, it's also an excellent time to evaluate your facility's safety system. If your evaluation can be summed up with “we have some signs up!” - then you are in dire need of this article! Other facilities may have some padding in place, but it may not be the right size, thickness, or even designed for the pool; in that case, you too could benefit from a safety overhaul. Read on to see how to head into fall without falling into a dangerous pool situation!



Scenario 1: Nothing to See Here


This pool has nothing beyond the lifeguard ladders you'd expect to find, as well as the important and required signage. This pool also most likely has a diving board or dive platform, and may even have water-play equipment. As with every pool, there will be entry/exit points.


Scenario 2: Close but No Cigar


This pool has some safety pads thrown under or around the common fall or hazard zones, e.g., dive stands or near play areas. Unfortunately, the padding may be worn, aging, or designed for an entirely different environment – like a playground. The pool is no place for a safety pad meant for a swing set.


Scenario 3: The Do-it-Yourself


This pool has tried to piece together some level of safety by finding whatever padding they can – which provides little to no actual security. Signage will be visible and padding may be inadequate or totally lacking.


The Solution: The right padding for the job.


If you recognized your aquatic center in any of these hypothetical situations, you're not alone. We see many pools with similar issues, and it's an easy fix. The right safety padding can make a tremendous difference in protecting your guests and creating a safer environment. We created our SoftSide™ safety pads exclusively for the tough pool environment. Each pad is made from thick safety foam covered in a tough layer of textured PVC. SoftSide pads are available in both ready-to-order sizes for common areas as well as custom sizes to create a one-of-a-kind safety fit.


SoftSide padding's PVC exterior is totally watertight and resists water and chlorine. It's a breeze to clean, low-maintenance, and prevents organic growth. From 1/2”-4” thick, you can get the exact level of protection you need. And that protection is no joke: SoftSide's test data shows that it reduced serious head fall-trauma by 98% and eliminated fatal head fall-trauma by 100%. Those are impressive numbers that should reassure you that your guests will be up to 100% safer once you upgrade to SoftSide padding!


If you're ready to improve your pool's safety system and get the best padding in the business, give us a call. Don't settle for a pad designed for the swing set: get SoftSide padding.
