Do we pay all four of them to guard or do they volunteer? They were all teenagers. We weren't doing anything unsafe and were following the rules: no running, no diving in the small pool, etc. If we are paying them, I feel two lifeguards is plenty and we could put the money towards something more important than teen lifeguards that make you feel uncomfortable in the swimming pool. Where I lived before, we had a pool about the same size and one or two lifeguards were on duty, never four.
