PREVENT YOUNG CHILDREN FROM DROWNING
A FEW CENTIMETRES OF WATER AND 20 SECONDS IS ALL IT TAKES FOR A CHILD TO DROWN
- Children, especially children younger than 5 years old, are at high risk of drowning. Drowning occurs silently and quickly and can happen in as little as 2 inches of water.
- Maintain constant supervision of children when they are in or near the pool. Inflatable pools present a drowning hazard even during filling and draining of the pool. Do not remove any safety barriers until the pool is completely empty and stowed away.
- Assign an adult to be responsible for watching children in the pool. Give this person a “water watcher” tag (included) and ask that they wear it the entire time they are in charge of supervising children in the pool. If they need to leave for any reason, ask this person to pass the “water watcher” tag and the supervision responsibility to another adult. Print additional tags here.
- Keep unsupervised children from accessing the pool by installing fencing or other approved barriers around all sides of pools. State/provincial, local laws or codes may require fencing or other approved barriers. Check state/provincial, local laws and codes before setting up your pool. Refer to the list of barrier recommendations and guidelines as described in CPSC Publication No. 362. “Safety Barrier Guideline for Home Pools” found at www.poolsafely.gov.
- Do not leave toys inside the pool when finished using, since toys and similar items might attract a child to the pool.
- Position furniture (example: tables, chairs) away from the pool, so that children cannot climb on them to gain access to the pool. After using the pool, remove water to a level of 1/2 inch or less.
- Carefully supervising your children while they are swimming or playing in or near water is always necessary. Children should be closely monitored even when they use swimming aids such as armbands, floating seats, water wings and neck rings. These devices are not intended to save lives. Swimming aids can give a false sense of security, which could result in a lack of proper supervision.
- Make sure young children and inexperienced swimmers always wear an approved lifejacket or personal flotation device when playing around water.
- Help your children learn about water safety by signing them up for a swimming and water safety program. Sign yourself up for first aid training to learn basic lifesaving skills.
- When searching for a missing child, check the pool first, even if you think your child is in the house.
- Do not dive into this pool. Diving into shallow water can result in a broken neck, paralysis, or death.
- Keep all electrical lines, radios, speakers and other electrical appliances away from the pool.
- Do not place the pool near or under overhead electrical lines.
- Do not use inflatable electric pumps near water. Inflating a pool that has water in it or near it with an electrical pump could cause electrocution.
BE PREPARED TO RESPOND TO AN EMERGENCY
- Keep a working phone and a list of emergency numbers near the pool.
- Become certified CPR so you can respond to an emergency. In the event of an emergency, immediate use of CPR can make a life-saving difference.
- Always keep CPR instructions by the pool.
POOL SET UP SAFETY
- The area where the pool is to be set up must be absolutely flat, firm and level. Do not set up the pool on a slope or inclined surface.
- The ground surface must be compacted and firm enough to withstand the pressure and weight of a fully set up pool.
- Do not set up the pool on soft or loose soil conditions (such as sand or mud), or on an elevated surface such as a deck, platform, or balcony, which may collapse under the weight of the filled pool.
- Fill the pool to the FILL LINE marked on its inner wall. Do not overfill the pool.
- Pool fencing laws may affect this product. Consult your local council and set up this product accordingly.
- Pool should be set up in compliance with local safety and building codes. Follow inflation instructions in this manual.
- CAUTION: Keep out of baby’s reach.
- WARNING: Use only under supervision.
- The product must be assembled and disassembled by an adult.
- Only for domestic use.
GENERAL USAGE SAFETY
- Always use caution when stepping into or out of the pool.
- Do not straddle or jump on the inflatable pool wall. Water could flood out and injury may occur.
- Do not jump from other objects onto or into the inflatable.
- No diving.
- Inspect the inflatable and its hardware before each use.
- Do not modify this product or use any accessories that are not supplied by the manufacturer (e.g.: pumps, filters, etc.)
- Never use an inflatable pool while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
DRAINAGE & STORAGE
- Only adults are to drain, deflate and store the pool.
- Drain, rinse, dry and deflate your inflatable pool after each use. Draining and deflating your pool will keep kids and pets safe when the pool is not in use. Rinsing your pool after each use will prevent the pool from getting “slippery” on the bottom – as stagnant water will do that to any pool that you don’t use chemicals in.
- Always use the drain plug to drain the pool. Trying to flip the pool over to pour out the water can result in tearing because the weight of the water will stretch the seams.
- To deflate, open both flaps of the air valve and the pool will quickly deflate.
- Once water is almost completely drained, slowly lift one side of the pool to drain the remaining water. Ensure the pool is completely dry before folding and storing.
- Once the pool is completely dry, we recommend that you use the deflation mode on your electric inflator pump to get every bit of air out.
- Then fold accordion-style until the pool is in a long line shape. Then fold that long line until it is approximately the size of your vinyl tote bag. You should now be able to slide the pool in easily where it will stay nicely contained.
- Pool can be cleaned with mild soap and lukewarm water only. Do NOT use chemicals.
- Make sure the pool is rinsed and completely dry before storing to help prevent mildew from forming.
- Store the pool in a dry and cool environment with no UV exposure to protect against sun damage.
- Use the provided patch kit to repair punctures or holes in the pool.
