What Are Common Swimming Pool Hazards in Washington, DC?

Swimming pools found in backyards, gyms, apartment complexes, and community rec centers may contain hazards such as:

  • Defective equipment. Faulty equipment, especially pool drains, can cause severe injuries, including amputation, serious lacerations and disembowelment. In many cases, fatal pool drain accidents occur when a swimmer’s limb is stuck in the drain, causing drowning.
  • Lack of supervision. Accidental drownings are a major cause of preventable deaths among children 14 years old and younger. Some swimming pools use lifeguards to supervise swimmers and respond to emergencies, but they are not always properly trained or paying adequate attention.
  • Standing water. Wet surfaces around pools and on diving boards can cause you or other swimmers to slip and fall.
  • Poor maintenance. Without regular maintenance, equipment and even the pool water itself can be hazardous. Poorly maintained pool drains, for example, may break or malfunction, causing injuries. Additionally, untreated swimming pools may contain bacteria and viruses that can cause severe illness, and dirty, cloudy water can make the visibility of swimmers in the pool difficult or impossible.
  • Poorly trained staff. Lifeguards should have training that allows them to respond to certain emergencies. Without CPR training, a lifeguard would be unable to save your life if you suffered cardiac arrest from drowning. Employees charged with handling potentially dangerous pool cleaning chemicals should also have adequate training.
  • Unsafe design. The design of a swimming pool can put you and others at risk of injury or wrongful death. Swimming pools should also have fences and have working gates to keep small children from entering the premises and drowning. In addition, swimming pools should contain signs that warn swimmers of hazards, such as No Diving signs near shallow water.
