With the temperatures rising, a favorite activity for young and old is cooling off in the pool. But, swimming pools are not all fun and games. Whether it's swimming leisurely, enjoying water aerobics or playing with family and friends, water safety is a top priority. Taking safety steps as outlined above, can help reduce the number of pool-related incidents.
Before an unexpected accident occurs on your property, make sure you have the right insurance coverage. An umbrella policy can provide additional liability protection against an unexpected claim and can easily be purchased in conjunction with your homeowners policy. This added layer of protection may cover you and protect your assets if someone gets injured in your pool. Talk to your local independent agent, who can provide you with various insurance options for more ways to keep yourself protected.
