A Pool with Rules

Summer is here and we’re finally breaking out the killer gift my mother-in-law gave Oster: a splash pool. 

Before we could set it up we had to remove a very large sticker and an Owner’s Manual. I thought it might be wise to read the manual to see if there is anything we need to concern ourselves about (since this is the first splash pool we’ve ever owned).

According to the manual, there are a few safety measures that we are instructed to follow:

First – “Keep unsupervised children from accessing the pool by installing fencing or other approved barrier around all sides of the pool.”

Second – “Do not dive into this pool.”

Third – Apparently only women can watch their children swim. Sorry, Andy:

    • Hey, magsx2. I know! We were cracking up reading the endless list of what we need to do.

      My favorite instructions are from IKEA. They always include a cartoon man trying to put something together. It’s always comical, although great instructions for not having any text.

  1. We just got a similar pool and was cracking up about the fence. Ours also had instructions on how to empty it by lifting it up on one side and dumping the water out… in case a person couldn’t figure that put. Lol

    • Thank you 🙂 Oster is only 14 months old. Aren’t these instructions ridiculous? I appreciate your kind words about the post. Thanks for putting a smile on my face.
