Every year we recruit and train the best lifeguard staff, from all around the world, to be placed at your facility. Managing a pool so it meets safety, health department, and administrative standards is a multifaceted task requiring expertise in operations, liability and staffing. In other words, it isn’t a job for a one-man operation with a pick-up truck that runs pools part-time in the summer. You need a sizable swimming pool management company that’s financially stable, has a long history of top performance and staffing depth, keeps multiple experts in-house and boasts significant legal and insurance resources. Continental Pools is that company.
We ensure that your pool is always code-compliant, never short staffed, and has the most comprehensive insurance policy in the industry. Insurance protection is actually a substantial component of the management fee. In 2018, we are carrying $37 million in general liability insurance. With us, you can rest assured that your pool will be managed with the utmost professionalism. And if you have questions, we’re happy to give you straightforward answers. We’ll fill you in on the real reasons you should hire a professional firm, including detailed descriptions of our latest training techniques, the truth about county inspections, plus some construction tips you might not have heard before.

Continental Pools has raised the bar for lifeguard performance, with a program that far exceeds industry standards.
Our lifeguards are trained according to protocols established by the leading water park risk management company, Jeff Ellis and Associates. We ensure that your pool is fully staffed as contracted.
In order to maintain their certifications, our lifeguards complete in-service training modules through out the summer. You may encounter one of our training drills at your pool, simulating an actual emergency in real conditions.
Our lifeguards understand that while they are on duty, they must be rescue ready at all times: at their station in uniform, with the rescue tube strapped on, and always alert.
Early recognition and quick reaction to an emergency situation is the primary component to a successful rescue. The 10/20 Protection Rule states that lifeguards have 10 seconds to scan their Zone of Protection and recognize a swimmer in distress and then responds within 20 seconds.
Our supervisory and management staff visits each facility at random to evaluate the safety and operational conditions. In addition, our in-house training staff performs unannounced audits of lifeguards throughout the season.
Our customer-centric approach is shared with our lifeguard staff to ensure that they demonstrate basic leadership skills at all times. They are taught to be diplomatic, consistent and fair when explaining and enforcing pool rules.
