Safety Checks

Pool Fencing and Gates: Double-check that the fencing and gates are secure and functioning properly.

Life-saving Equipment: Confirm once more that life rings, reach poles, and other safety equipment are in good condition and easily accessible.

Safety Signage: Walk the pool area and ensure that all safety and rule signage is clear and visible.

Pool Chemicals: Have the pool service run a final check on the water’s chemical balance to ensure it’s safe for swimmers.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Final Pool Cleaning: Schedule a final pool cleaning just before opening to ensure it’s as clean as possible.

Pool Equipment Inspection: Perform a final check of all pool equipment to ensure everything is in working order.

Staffing and Training

Lifeguard Schedules: Confirm the lifeguard schedules and make sure they have their current certifications.

Staff Readiness: Check with your pool staff to ensure they’re ready and fully trained on pool rules and emergency procedures.

Communication with Residents

Opening Announcement: Send out a final reminder about the pool opening date.

Pool Rules: Redistribute the pool rules to all residents. Ensure they’re clearly posted at the pool as well.

Safety Measures Reminder: Remind residents of the importance of following safety measures and supervising children while at the pool.
