Consider Your Swimming Pools Capacity

Although you want your kids to enjoy the pool, it is important to remember that accidents do happen. There are many ways to make sure they stay safe while they are in and around the water.

If you have a pool, please take the time to properly size it for your needs. Make sure to know the pool’s capacity so that you can be sure not to overcrowd it and cause water damage. To protect you pool from algae you can use retractable swimming pool enclosure.

Pool capacity is typically listed in gallons or liters. 

To determine how many people can comfortably swim at one time in your pool, divide the depth of the pool by its width.

For example, if your pool is 100 feet long and 30 feet wide, then a maximum of 25 people can swim at one time. If there are more than 25 people wishing to use the pool at the same time, then someone will need to leave. 

Similarly, if you have a spa or hot tub, please be aware of its capacity as well. Spas typically have a liter capacity and hot tubs typically hold up to 350 liters of water.

Make sure that everyone in attendance knows the dimensions of your spa or hot tub before getting wet!  If you are still unsure of the pool’s capacity, please feel free to contact your local pool or spa manufacturer. They will be more than happy to assist you with your sizing needs.
