Swimming Pool Safety

All pools should have a fence with a self closing-self latching gate, at least four feet high. Talk with your Viking Dealer about installing additional safety devices like pool surface alarms, safety covers and child-safety barriers that meet your local building and safety codes and guidelines published by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals. Safety ropes should always remain in place.

Feet First

FEET FIRST™ Always Enter Pool Feet First. Diving May Result in Injury or Death.


Have a conversation with your pool provider about the correct use and installation of safety devises like; safety ropes, child safety barriers, pool surface alarms, and safety covers. Every pool should be surrounded by a locked and gated fence in compliance with the National Spa and Pool Institute's guidelines, as well as with local building and safety codes.

Safety should be the first priority of any new or existing pool owner. Make sure to take the necessary steps to assure that you, your friends, family, and anyone else in or around the pool are familiar with the guidelines of its safe and sensible use. Smart pool owners urge their guests to not use it under the influence of alcohol, drugs, stimulants, prescription medications, or anything else that could in any way hinder their judgment or abilities.

With your pool, you will receive a free pool Customer Information Kit, including:

  • Safety Sign Installation/Installation Sheet
  • Signs & Labels
  • The Sensible Way to Enjoy Your Inground Swimming Pool (APSP Publication)
  • Children Aren't Waterproof (APSP Publication)
  • Inground Pool Owner's Handbook
  • Warranty
  • Use & Care Manual
  • Warning Label

We strongly recommend the use and careful placement of all safety stickers and signs included in your pool owner's safety kit. It's also a good idea to contact your local American Red Cross for available CPR classes and other vital safety programs.
