Unexpected Swimming Pool Hazards

Swimming pools offer the opportunity to exercise, hang out with friends, and relax. Regardless of why a person chooses to go to the pool or whether they go in the summer or another time of the year, any visitor to a swimming pool deserves to have a safe experience. Unfortunately, in addition to the commonly known hazards a pool presents, many swimming pools are dangerous due to the presence of unexpected hazards. Often, these hazards are the result of a negligent pool owner or manager.

Unexpected Hazards Found at Swimming Pools

While many people know the danger of drowning that is always present when near a body of water and other, more noticeable dangers, such as those possibly posed by large water features like slides, there are other dangers that a person visiting a swimming pool may be unaware of. These unexpected hazards can include:

  • Contaminated water
  • Metal drains
  • Slippery/slick surfaces
  • Wildlife

All of these hazards can lead to serious physical injuries and might even necessitate treatment in the hospital. However, regardless of what type of injury a person sustains, if it was caused by the pool’s manager or owner, it should be that party’s responsibility, not the victim’s.
