You might be able to swim in a swimming pool at home, but you might not be able, or want to, because it might not have a built-in barrier, according to Recode’s new report.
Recode is calling it the “spine of the iceberg” for pool safety.
The study, published Monday, found that most Americans are not prepared for what happens when a swimming event breaks down.
It’s an important first step for everyone who wants to swim.
Here are the top questions and answers about swimming pools: Why are we still using swimming pools?
When people first started swimming, they were terrified of it.
They thought it was dangerous.
They didn’t know how to swim, or what to do with their body.
But as people started to learn how to use a swimming device, their fears disappeared.
We’ve learned a lot since then.
That’s one of the reasons why we started looking at the safety of swimming pools, and why we’re still using them.
Why did the research happen?
We’re in a time when the demand for new technology is so high, and we’re trying to create a world where people can have fun with it.
That means we need to understand what’s happening and how it’s being used, and how that affects people’s safety.
How many people are swimming?
We looked at about 1.4 million swimming pools across the U.S. and found that about 60% of people surveyed said they used the pool at least once a week, which is less than half the figure for the general population.
About 30% of the pools surveyed said that the average person used it only a couple of times a month, while more than 50% said they never used it at all.
Where do the numbers come from?
We analyzed data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
We used the survey to ask people about their swimming experience, which was then combined with information about the types of activities they were engaging in.
What are the key takeaways?
Most people know about the pool’s built-up area and how big it is.
But there’s still a lot more that’s not known about the safety and use of swimming in a pool.
The pool doesn’t have a dedicated barrier, meaning there’s no barrier in the pool itself to protect people from drowning.
The design of a pool also makes it hard to keep people safe in the water.
Some people may not feel comfortable using a swimsuit in a water hazard because they think it will make them feel uncomfortable in a real-life situation.
People who want to swim may feel scared to try it out for fear of getting injured.
This may also result in people using a pool that is not safe for swimming.
In many cases, people who swim in the pools are just as safe in a safe-for-swimming pool as people who do not.
It may be tempting to think that a pool is safe when people are already using it, but the safety gap is widening.
We have to understand the safety landscape, which means making sure that everyone is taking the steps to protect themselves.
