With the weather warming up and summer right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your upcoming pool parties. If you have a backyard pool you are sure to have at least one pool party this summer. But have you thought of hiring a lifeguard for your pool party?

One of the services Hippo in the Bathtub offers is lifeguards for your backyard pool parties. The reason we offer this service is because we know how important it truly is to have a designated set of eyes watching the swimmers in your pool. There are many reasons why we believe having a lifeguard at your pool party is vital to your summer.

One of the main reasons having a lifeguard at your pool party is important, is because of safety. Not everyone who shows up to your pool party may be a strong and confident swimmer. If there are weaker swimmers present, the lifeguard will be able to identify them and keep an eye on them. The lifeguard will also be able to make sure only strong swimmers capable of swimming in the deep-end actually go in the deep-end. It is all too common for a swimmer to reach the part of the pool where they can no longer touch the bottom and start to freak out. Having a lifeguard’s eyes on the pool can help to make sure this does not happen and to keep your pool safe.

In addition, if you are hosting a pool party you are sure to be very busy. From greeting people, to preparing food, to making sure everything runs smoothly, it is easy to get distracted and not always pay attention to the swimmers in the pool. With a lifeguard present you may still have to run from duty to duty but you won’t have to keep an eye on the pool!

Lastly, we all know how stressful hosting a party can be. You want everything to run seamlessly and go just as you planned. Having a lifeguard present at your party can provide you with the peace of mind you need, to know that your pool is safe. You will be much more relaxed knowing there is a trained professional watching all the swimmers in your pool.

Having a lifeguard at your backyard pool party is an excellent idea as it not only provides a safe environment for everyone swimming but it also allows you, the host, to feel at ease knowing everyone is safe in the pool. So, if you are planning a pool party this summer, be sure to book our Hippo in the Bathtub Lifeguarding Services!
