Pool safety on dry land

Pool safety is important when you go for a swim but also when you are inside your home.

If you have a pool in your backyard it is always important to use safety precautions.  Even if you don’t have kids in your home, the neighbors might or someone visiting in the neighborhood might.  Kids can be very curious and find a way to get to your pool.

Mesh fencing should be at least four feet high and have a self-closing, self-latching gate meeting the latest ASTM standards.  Door and gate alarms can alert you to children leaving the house.  Motion alarms can be installed around the pool or in the water.  Children shouldn’t be able to get to your pool without you.  Safety covers meeting the ASTM F1346 Standard are also a way to increase safety in your pool.

Call a pool professional for help making your pool safe!
