What Is a Baby Pool?

A baby pool is a customized swimming pool made for infants and children 5 years old or below. The architectural design of the baby pool is similar to a regular adult pool but with differences in size and water depth. Baby pools can be found in gyms, water parks, indoor establishments, amusement parks, training centers, resorts, and so forth. The materials used in these pools could be plastic, rubber, ceramic, glass, or porcelain with concrete decks and plastic or steel walls. Baby pools are 2-4 feet deep, with 2 feet being the recommended depth for infants who are just starting to swim.

How To Build a Safe Baby Pool

If you plan to build a baby pool as a solid business, there are some things you need to consider such as the pool design, materials, user demography, and usage policies. If you are creating a homemade pool of your own, it is best to consult engineers, architects, and other building experts (in case your profession is none of the abovementioned) so that you get the right measurements that are most safe for your child. You can utilize the steps below if you are planning to build a baby pool for a real estate property or commercial business.

1. Assess the Design of the Pool

When building a baby pool, you must first perform a risk assessment to ensure that the design of the pool is appropriate for the children. Did it have the correct measurements? Is the design kid-friendly? If you are unsure whether the design passes the standard requirements and specifications, you can bring the draft to a trusted and licensed engineer or architect to get a second opinion. If the design does not pass the expected standards and does not fit your preference or idea, you can always change them before the pool could be constructed.

2. Check the Materials

When you’ve finished the design and are ready to build the baby pool, always remember to check the materials being used and will be used in the construction, including the electrical and plumbing work. The materials shouldn’t just be for aesthetics, but they should also withstand any kind of circumstances that might damage them and expose the children to injuries.

3. Get a Permit

Some states and countries allow private property owners to build a baby pool on the premise of their backyard, they don’t permit the same with pool business operators. To get a license to operate, you should fulfill all the requirements under the Swimming Pool Contractor Law or Policy and submit any paperwork to the relevant agency. With a legal permit or license, you can start opening your business, as well as hire personal trainers.

4. Update Your Pool Guidelines

There is nothing more important than securing the safety of the children when in the pool. Establish well-defined guidelines and pool policies that should be strictly implemented and followed by anyone, including yourself. If you are planning to allow a pool party or other kiddie events, you should make another guideline for that one so that parents would know what to do when inside your premise or establishment.

What is the best material to use for a baby pool?

If you are looking for a material that you can use to create your baby pool, it is recommended to use non-toxic, hard plastic, and tear-resistant fabrics.

How can I keep the baby pool hygienic?

If you are using plastic materials for the pool, change the water every 2 weeks. Check the drain pipes and waterways for any possible contamination and treat them immediately to avoid being consumed by children.

Is an inflatable baby pool safe?

An inflatable pool is considered safe when it has passed the quality assurance standard and certification. However, parents are still advised to check the measurements of the pool and if it fits their child’s swimming skills or height.
