Pool Safety! Items most people don't think about
Summer is finally here! This means cookouts, family gatherings, going to the beach and of course, swimming in the pool! While these activities are nothing but fun we always have to take precautions to be safe this summer. Here are just 5 pool safety items most people may not think about when owning a pool!
While you’re not at home, I’m sure you won’t want just anyone taking a dip in the pool. To keep your mind at ease, installing a pool alarm will tell you immediately if someone is near or in the pool. There are many different pool alarms on the market, such as fence/wall mounted alarms, pool mounted infrared detectors, underwater motion alarms, floating motion sensors and more! See which one would be best for you and your family’s pool!
PET SAFETY EQUIPMENT
If you have a pet that loves to swim, or if you’re worried about them falling in, make sure you have the proper items! This can be as simple as ramps or bridges to help your pets have easy access in and out of the pool.
POOL SAFETY FENCE
Most towns now require a fence to be installed when buying a new in-ground or above-ground pool. Even if it’s not required in your area, it’s always suggested! Most fences will have a self-closing, self-latching gate and doesn’t have to be any higher than a few feet making it easy for anyone to access. If you're not looking for something so permanent, portable and temporary fences are available as well to help keep kids and animals out of the water while they’re not being supervised.
EMERGENCY POOL SAFETY ITEMS
Hopefully you may never need to use these items, but should always have them in case of an emergency. This includes things like a lifesaver with a rope or a shepherd's hook in the rare chance someone may be drowning or unable to swim out.
