The dangers of wave pools


Wave pools may be fun, but they can also be incredibly dangerous. If you need an explanation of what a wave pool is, it’s normally a large swimming pool with waves that are generated mechanically. Whilst these facilities can draw in visitors from miles around, it’s important to remember that they can cause serious accidents and injuries. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest dangers of wave pools right now.

Common accidents with wave pools

Wave pools can be incredibly dangerous for inexperienced swimmers, and many have come to harm after overestimating their skills in the water. Swimmers may be pulled further into the deep end than they wish to head and many have come to harm when the people managing the facilities have failed to maintain them or check them properly. Chlorine, heat and sun glare can lead to reduced visibility, and loud noise around the pool may prevent lifeguards from being able to hear cries for assistance. Crowding can also make it harder to spot those in distress, and people may find it tough to exit the pool when they are no longer comfortable because of the vast amount of people in it. Sadly, one of the dangers of wave pools is the risk of death.
