  • Look into features available in the home. Do you like the spacing and the facilities offered? If you want to buy a condominium, read all the HOA rules before finalizing a purchase because you should be aware of the maintenance fees and rules that residents have to follow.

  • In case of a new home construction check out on the reputation of the builder. Is the builder someone whose has been in business for a long time? Is there a proper answering system for queries posed by prospective buyers?

A home with a pool is the ideal option, but homeowners should take care when they have small children in their home pool area. Children can inadvertently get into accidents and even a few seconds of lack of attention is all it takes to risk life. Florida homeowners are urged to take steps by which safety of their child is ensured around the pool area. Here is a look into some tips on how to keep your child safe around water:

  • One of the most important things to do with children playing in the swimming pool is to keep them away from deeper sections of the pool.

  • Teach children thoroughly about pool safety and how to swim in the pool. Ensure that an adult is always present even after a child has learn to swim well.

  • Never leave electronic appliance in the pool area. Water conducts electricity, so having electrical gadget around is unsafe.

  • Till children learn swimming properly, always make use of life vest to keep them afloat on water.

  • Learn CPR because you never know when you may need it.

  • Have four-foot high pool fences placed around the pool area. It will prevent children from accidentally slipping into the pool.

  • Toys left in the pool are can catch a child’s attention. When you are looking elsewhere your child may run to catch the toy and may slip on water. If the toy is floating in the pool water the child can also try to jump into the pool to get it. Never leave toys around the pool or in the pool water.

  • Have a pool safety alarm installed which can draw your attention in case your child happens to accidentally drowns in the pool

Child safety around the pool is of utmost importance because children are very playful and active. A child is not fully aware of the implications of being too playful in the pool area, so it is vital for adult supervision to be constantly present in the pool area. While one adult must remain inside the pool, another adult must be present in outside of the pool. Taking such measures is the only way to ensure that children will be safe under all circumstances.
