What is the best method of supervision for swimming pool parties?

Designate a "Spotter" for Pool Parties

If you throw a pool party, target two or three adults who are strong swimmers and are trained in CPR and emergency response to watch over everyone in the swimming pool. This is the same concept as appointing a designated driver.
A spotter will watch swimmers closely during gatherings to ensure that no one goes into distress unnoticed. The person you appoint should be reliable and willing to shoulder the responsibility.
