Omni Palm Springs Injury Attorney – Lazy Pool


What Is a “Lazy Pool” or “Lazy River” Feature of a Pool?

The lazy river or lazy pool feature of a pool, is where there are water channels made into the pool, that allow guests at the pool to gently float down the “river” to a main area of the pool itself. It can be used by adults and children, who sit in big plastic inner tubes, with their body inside the tubing and their feet hanging out the sides.

There Are Many Hazards to an Omni Palm Springs Lazy River Pool Feature

There are a multitude of hazards that are attached to an Omni Palm Springs lazy river pool features. The first issue with the lazy river pool area, is that if guests have taken food and drinks into the pool, then the debris from these activities can be washed up and cut or harm other guests as they float by the floating garbage in the pool. Guests on the lazy river can be cut by floating debris, cutlery, cups, glass, or any other waste and refuse that may be found floating in the pool itself. The lazy river in a pool is propelled with fast moving water features, that force a current to push the rafts or tubes down a lane in the pool. The systems move several thousands of gallons a minute, and can provide a fast current that may be dangerous to guests who are not used to a current being in a pool area.

How Are Lazy River Pool Features Built?

These features are a mastery of craftsmanship, when they are made properly and according to building codes for these features. Technically speaking, there needs to be current pipes with out and return features, fittings, pipe routing and specific angles for the pipes and the water pump placement for the water feature of the pool. There are also suction drains, and specific trenches that need to be built for pipes, as well as planning for the length and depth of the current feature of the pool. As the system is laid out, there needs to be return pipes with suction boxes that force the water around properly in the pool, as well as all engineering and planning to maintain a water line that is consistent when the pumps are working to move the water creating a lazy river feature. If any part of the suction pipe, bushings, elbow or drain, sewer or decking is improperly installed for the lazy river feature of a pool, it can be a recipe for disaster for the entire project. The lazy river use pool pumps, but at a higher capacity. It will depend on the lazy river size, but a large water feature lazy river can use up to 40 horsepower pumps, which can move water a few miles per hour or 3 feet or so per second.

What Can Happen If You Fall into a Lazy River Water Feature

When the water is moving at a few feet per second, it is actually creating a strong current in the water. This may take people off guard if they fall in, and it is not impossible that someone unawares can drown or be seriously injured in this type of water feature. The movement of the water down the “river” will also possibly come into contact with any of the propulsion pumps, which can be dangerous. There will be vertically mounted flow pumps, that are there to move around high volumes of water, which need to be placed directly on the river area of the pool. Young children can be sucked into a pump, that might be a concern, if there is not the properly installed grating around the pumps as they are built into the system. The water moves in the river with jets, inlets and special pipes that feed the water current around the pool. Any time the angles are too steep, the water jets will push to the surface and just bubble, up. If the jets are placed to flat, then the water will not move properly as the water force of the jets will be forced downward to the bottom of the pool. The jets are usually found in the walls of the pool area, but it can cause a hazard for the guests as they float by the jets on the river. If the turns on the design of the lazy river pool are hairpin and too tightly constructed, then the guest’s inner tubes will get caught in the eddies and will need to be “rescued” by the lifeguards in that case as they will get stuck to the side of the pool. In a wave pool the water is pushed vertically to create waves. In a lazy river pool feature, the water is pushed horizontally to create the feeling of drifting down a lazy river in the pool.
