Safety first, and always

At Kem-Tek, we know our customers want to spend more time enjoying their pools and spas, and less time maintaining them. We also value our customers and their families, and want to help you keep your pool and spa safe for children and pets. Make safety a priority at your pool and spa.

Set safety rules and enforce them – every day with every user!

Pool safety tips

  • Make sure everyone in your family learns to swim
  • Have a safety plan and rehearse it with your family: calling 911, etc.
  • Review water safety issues with your entire family on a regular basis
  • Install a protective safety barrier between children and pets, and your pool and spa
  • Remember that a fence or barrier is NOT a substitute for adult supervision
  • Get training in CPR, first aid, lifeguarding, swimming and/or water safety from the American Red Cross

Spa safety tips

  • Do not heat your spa water higher than 104 degrees Fahrenheit; a higher temperature is bad for your health and can damage the spa surface
  • Always check the temperature before entering your spa
  • Avoid strenuous activity or physical workouts immediately following spa use; heat relaxes your muscles and promotes the release of toxins from the body through perspiration
  • Set a reasonable time limit (usually not more than 15 minutes) for your spa soak; after that time, leave the spa, then shower and cool down
  • Never use a spa if you are under the influence of alcohol or using anti-coagulants, antihistamines, vasoconstrictors, vasodilators, stimulants, hypnotics, narcotics or tranquilizers
  • Consult your doctor before using a spa if you are pregnant, have heart disease, diabetes, high or low blood pressure
  • Yikes! Keep electrical appliances AWAY from the spa
  • Always follow instructions for each test carefully

Always maintain a proper sanitizing level, to avoid skin irritation
