Annandale, Virginia (mynewsdesk) February 18, 2019 - The Maryland pool demolition contractor at Dirt Connections released a blog discussing the top inground pool liabilities homeowners face. While having a pool can be an enjoyable feature, many homeowners are unaware of the potential liabilities they present.
The biggest concern with any swimming pool is the risk of serious injury. Homeowners may be liable for any broken bones, concussions, and even deaths that may occur as the result of their pools. While someone trespassing on your property to use your pool is not protected by the same laws as an invited guest, pool owners may find themselves responsible for injuries to them, as well. Chemical injuries also present a liability. Contaminated water that is swallowed or even simply touched may cause ear or eye infections, respiratory illnesses, and other health conditions. Pool owners must have proper rescue equipment, such as life preservers, and keep ladders, diving boards, and other equipment in good working order, as the lack of these features could present a liability.
Pool owners can remove their pool and their risk of liability this season. Removing your pool saves you the stress and potential financial backlash that can come from injures cause by your pool. A pool removal can also save you the time and money that it took to maintain the pool's equipment and pH balance all year. The removal also leaves plenty of space in your backyard for other activities. You may choose to install a patio, garden, barbeque area, or even create an addition to your house. The house may be easier to sell in the future, as well. If pools are a rarity in your area, new homeowners may prefer a house without the extra liability and maintenance of a pool, increasing the value of your home.
