We should always stay away from drains. Drains help to keep pools clean by filtering the water. If a drain is broken or cracked or missing a screw, things can get stuck to it, like your hair or swimsuit strings.
Objectives of this Lesson
“Stay Away From Drains” is a bonus lesson of The Whole Hand Rules. If your family or students more frequently visits public, community, or apartment pools, you may substitute this lesson for “Follow Open Water Safety Rules.” Alternatively, you can teach this lesson in addition to The Whole Hand Rules lessons.
