Children are naturally attracted to colorful, interesting toys and pool toys are no exception. As such, it is important to keep pool toys and flotation devices out of the pool when they are not in use. Pool toys can attract children to the water in the hopes of enjoying playtime, even if there is no adult readily available to provide supervision. This could put them at risk for drowning. Pool toys should be removed from the pool deck as well. Left around, they create tripping and slipping hazards for children and adults alike.
To keep pool toys out of the way and loved ones out of danger, purchase a couple of storage bins. If you're concerned that storage bins will take up too much of your deck space, use decorative netting to keep your deck areas free from clutter and your pool toys handy.
