Safety is 1st!
Platinum Custom Pools & Landscaping is concerned about the safety of you and your family. Please use these safety guidelines as you prepare to enjoy your own personal oasis.


  • Do not chew gum or eat while you swim; you could easily choke.
  • Never drink alcohol and swim.
  • Use common sense about swimming after eating. In general, you do not have to wait an hour after eating before you may safely swim. However, if you have had a large meal, it is wise to let digestion get started before doing strenuous activity such as swimming.


  • If you come upon a person in an emergency, remember CHECK-CALL-CARE: CHECK the scene to ensure it's safe and CHECK the victim, CALL 9-1-1 or your local emergency number, and CARE for the person until help arrives.
  • Take an American Red Cross CPR and first aid class.


  • Watch out for the "dangerous too's"- too tired, too cold, too much sun, too much strenuous activity.
  • Stay out of the water when overheated.
  • Know your swimming limits and stay within them. Don't try to keep up with a stronger skilled swimmer or encourage others to keep up with you. Keep an eye on weaker swimmers-if they appear tired, encourage them to rest on land.
  • Obey "No Diving" signs,  which always indicate the area is unsafe for head-first entries. Always check the depth of the water before you dive. A general rule is to enter feet first into water rather than head-first if you don't know the depth. In addition, learn the correct way to dive from a qualified instructor.
  • Know local weather conditions and prepare for electrical storms. Because water conducts electricity, it is wise to stop swimming as soon as you see or hear a  storm.
