Portable swimming pools

Portable pools can pose a safety risk, especially for children under the age of five. Even in a small portable pool with very little water, it only takes seconds for a child to drown.

The Portable swimming pool safety considerations has been developed to help consumer be aware of the dangers and enjoy their pool safely. It has been translated into Arabic, Greek, Italian, Vietnamese and Traditional Chinese.
