Residential Pool Safety

No one ever plans for a tragedy. We all hope it will never happen to us, especially in our own backyard. As a pool owner, it is your responsibility to put layers of protection into place to ensure the safety of our swimmers.

On the following pages, you will find information regarding pool safety products, such as the EcoStar SVRS variable-speed pump with built in SVRS, Stratum VRS (vacuum release system) to help prevent suction entrapment, layers of protection, general pool safety guidelines, and a summary of the new legislation—The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act. Here at Hayward, we want you to have the most memorable and safe poolside experiences possible.
