    Swimming pool equipment maker @srsmithllc kills not two but THREE birds with one stone in this one. Not only does the firm show off the sleek and modern look of its Artisan Rails, but it also gives a shout out to builder Gulf Coast Pools while also being the first industry member to tweet our new hashtag #AISwimSocial. Way to lead by example, S.R. Smith.

    Even though @IWSD1 shared this classic Family Circus comic, there's definitely nothing funny about parents who don't watch their kids while they're in or around water. On May 15, help share the importance of this message and drowning prevention by recognizing International Water Safety Day. #AISwimSocial

    Zion, Ill.-based @SwimKiefer was in the celebratory spirit when the firm wished Jaring Timmerman a happy 105th birthday. We discovered Timmerman ourselves just recently when the centenarian swimmer set two new world records in January. What an inspiration to all of us! #AISwimSocial

    @LifesavingON shared this #ThrowBackThursday shot, and it's definitely one for the books. We love that the Ontario, Canada-based Life Saving Society is sparking social interaction by asking followers to identify what aspects of the lifeguard drill would be handled differently today. Do you know? Hint: It's not the mustaches, hair or retro shorts. #AISwimSocial

    It may seem unlikely that the golden retriever manning this lifeguard tower in the photo shared by @CuteEmergency would save a life, but the news tells us otherwise. In recent years, we've read the amazing tales of "wonder dogs" like Bear, a four-year old black Labrador retriever who saved the life of his 14-month-old friend, or Rocky, who jumped into a river to rescue a 9-year-old girl, to name but a few. Cute and loving, dogs also are amazing first-responders and should be praised for their valiant and selfless life-saving efforts. #AISwimSocial

    They say a photo is worth 1,000 words, but nothing else really needs to be said about this one shared by @NetworkA, other than that we wish we could tune in to @BBC_TopGear if only to watch this episode that will appear during season 21 of the London-based show. #AISwimSocial

    @AUSLifeguards honors the lifeguards from the Dickson Aquatic Centre in Australia as the winning facility of the 2014 ACT Lifeguard Challenge. Celebrating accomplishments such as these via social media helps to motivate others worldwide to strive to have the best facility, lifesavers and programs available. #AISwimSocial

    The country was hit hard this winter by snow storm after snow storm, and Boston certainly was no exception. But the folks at @SAASwim took the Polar Vortex in stride. Even with temperatures dipping into the -20s with the windchill factor and snow accumulation nearing 50 inches so far this year, the organization still had swimming and its mission to fight cancer top of mind. #AISwimSocial

    @ParalympicsGB gave a proper Twitter sendoff to @SamHynd1 when the gold and two-time bronze medalist from Newport, Gwent hung up his swim cap in early February and retired from swimming at age 22. We applaud his determination and courage and wish him luck on his future endeavors. #AISwimSocial

    @8NewsNow's @LaurenRozyla reported on a recent traffic jam in the Las Vegas area, thanks to the colorful attractions headed to the new Cowabunga Bay Water Park set to open this spring. Area locals probably weren't too pleased with the delays that day, but when the temperatures get into their daily highs of 93 degrees by the time the park opens May 24, residents and travelers will be glad to have a place to cool off from the rapidly rising heat. #AISwimSocial

A Paralympic medalist retires. A swimmer celebrates an amazing birthday year. We've got it all here in the February edition of #AISwimSocial, a roundup of some of the best aquatics imagery shared on Twitter.
