Throwback Thursday: Lifeguard Swimsuit Roots

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

What was happening for us in the late 80’s? Water Safety Products was just getting started as we transitioned from designer swimwear to lifeguard uniforms. Here is a snapshot from one of our last catalogs as Sea Oats swimwear before we evolved into the ultimate lifeguard store we are today! Shown here are some of the styles that led to the creation of our first women’s swimsuits and eventually our most popular women’s lifeguard swimsuit, the 909 thin strap.

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014


Attention Lifeguards, supervisors, and uniform buyers! These stylish, simple Water Shoes provide foot protection and comfort for professional lifeguards, water park/pool guests and beachgoers of all types! The top of the shoe is made of a four-way stretch fabric, giving your feet the comfort and freedom they deserve. No other aqua shoe can compare to these bad boys! The sole is Thermoplastic Elastomer for extra-long life and traction when in wet areas such as catch pools, play areas, pool decks, slide dispatch areas and more!

Don’t want wet shoes? No problem! These slippers are so small and lightweight you can fit them in a hip pack. Just take them off, roll them up and stow them as needed. They are also an excellent retail solution for water parks. How many guests complain about slippery floors but they don’t want to wear  flimsy flip flops or bulky sneakers? Wear these slide-friendly shoes to keep playing all day without stubbing your toe, burning your feet, or stepping on a rock.

Product Spotlight: Lifeguard Rescue Tube Jacket- 705

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Attention Lifeguards, aquatics supervisors, and Operations managers! Our Rescue Tube Jacket, SKU 705, is a modern solution to rescue tube wear and tear. This product is an exclusive item from Water Safety Products and is a major improvement on previous lifeguard rescue tube jackets. Whether your tubes are old or new, this jacket will slip over any 50” Water Safety Products lifeguard rescue tube to protect it from wear and tear such as scratching, ripping, and sun exposure, helping you get the most value for your money.

You can even use them to provide your lifeguards with a little more color, without having to buy brand new tubes. Our lifeguard rescue tube jacket can make any older tube look sharp.  It simply slides over the tube and fits snugly, giving the tube a professional look. The 705 also has some stellar technical features that your lifeguards will love. The new durable fabric offers increased grip to limit slipping when in a rescue. These jackets also have mesh top and bottom panels, allowing water to drain and the jacket to dry more quickly.

3. Over 25 years of experience: Water Safety Products has been providing lifeguard uniforms and equipment for over 25 years. We first began in the 80’s as a designer junior swimwear manufacturer and after a single request (Can you do this for me?) we added lifeguard swimsuits for ladies into our line for the pool and waterpark industry. Word of mouth spread about our durable swimsuits and trusted, dependable service. Since 1989 we have dedicated our efforts to producing premium lifeguard equipment, bathing suits, and uniforms.

5. Built tough/ Made in the USA: All of our lifeguard swimsuits are made in the USA from the highest quality American fabrics. The result is a long-lasting, professional lifeguard swimsuit and an immediate turn around on your order. It also gives us the ability to create completely custom lifeguard bathing suits/swimsuits for your facility.

6. Quick service/ Efficiency: No one can create lifeguard uniforms faster than Water Safety Products!  There’s no need to wait for more swimsuits to arrive.  They are already in our warehouse waiting for your order. Most orders will ship within 48 hours or faster!

7. Customization: Customizing lifeguard bathing suits is one of our specialties.  All of our swimsuits are logo-free so you can add your company’s logo without a hassle.  We also create swimsuits for photographers, food staff, service colleagues and even local car wash teams.  If you want your brand, you get it!

8. Need just one more:  How frustrating is it when you need just one more uniform, but your supplier needs you to order a minimum quantity to give you the same price, or worse they don’t have just one more in stock? At the Water Safety Products store for lifeguards you will get your established quantity price when you need just one more. Same price, same color, same logo!

9. Timeless consistent style: Lifeguard styles are timeless, and so are our uniforms.  We buy our own fabrics and manufacture our own suits, so our colors and styles are consistent from year to year.  Don’t worry about having to change your outfit for next season, or find another supplier. We stock a consistent product you can add to your inventory at any time, from one season to the next.

10. Innovation and commitment: Our philosophy of consistent innovation to help lifeguards save lives sets us apart from our competitors.  We don’t just supply swimsuits, we create because of our commitment to the commercial aquatic lifeguard market.  Our philosophy has been rewarded throughout the years with these industry awards:
