It’s pool time and that means hours of endless fun.

Before you open your pool, there are some things you need to know.

Having your own pool is a luxury that most people want.

However, taking care of a personal pool is a big deal. Whether you’re opening your pool for the 15th time or are looking to add a pool to your property, here are some things you need to know.

#1. Make sure you have proper coverage

When it comes to having a pool on your property, you need to ensure you have proper coverage.
A pool on your property opens you up for medical bills, property damage, and other risks.
You need to talk to your insurance provider about the type of insurance you need to help cover you, when you need it most.


#2. Safety is always number one

Even though you’re just looking at the pool as a fun adventure, there is always a safety risk.

Make sure you have safety on your mind all the time when you own a pool.

Before you even open your pool this summer, have you taken all proper safety measures?

Check with your town’s rules for owning a pool.

They may require a gate be around the pool for safety reasons.

An alarm is usually necessary as well, to ensure pets and children remain safe.

#3. Don’t be afraid to accessorize your pool

When you’re adding up how much your home is worth, don’t forget the pool accessories.

Items like deck/patio/pool related items are all worth money and therefore make sure they are covered in your insurance.

If anything were to happen, you’d want to make sure your personal property is taken care of financially, especially your pool.

Taking these precautions before you open up your pool this year is important.

Working with an insurance agent that knows that they are doing will help you out tremendously.

Now, it’s important to know what coverage you have. You can always add coverage now and be covered for later.

There is no going back when you don’t have proper coverage.
