Experts explain the one thing parents should do AFTER kids use paddling pool | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Paddling pools can be fun for children but can also pose a safety risk, so parents have been warned to always remove any water and then turn the pool upside down when swimming time is over

Temperatures are continuing to soar this weekend and Sunday is expected to be another hot day after the mercury reached 32.2C in England yesterday.

As Brits get ready to face another hot day, many are looking for ways to keep cool in their gardens – and paddling pools are a popular option, especially for children.

But while these small pools can be fun for kids to splash around, there is one thing parents should always keep in mind to ensure safety after the children have finished playing.

Lee Heard, Charity Director at Royal Lifesaving Society UK (RLSS), said that paddling pools should be emptied as soon as swimming time is over so that any water, for example from rain, cannot collate.

Once emptied, he said that the pool should be turned upside down, adding: “This means that water, from a rain shower for example, cannot collate in the paddling pool if it is left upright and become a potential hazard.”

Another reason why pools should be emptied is the risk of bacteria and stagnant water.

Mr Heart has also warned of the risks of living children unsupervised. He explained that parents should never leave their children alone while in a paddling pool as the risk of drowning is high, and it can happen very quickly.
