If you are a pool owner, safety is always of first importance—especially if you have young children. Taking the proper safety measures not only puts your mind to ease, but it could save a life. Thankfully, many great products exist which can help you tremendously when it comes to keeping your loved ones safe. Here are some of the top-rated and cost-effective pool safety products on the market today:
When it comes to pool safety, installing a pool alarm is always a great place to start. This pool alarm is designed to sound when the door or gate to your pool is opened without pressing the adult bypass button. The 110 dB alarm will continue until the button is pressed, ensuring that you don’t miss it. In addition, this package includes two sensors for sliding glass door installation, giving you the ability to open your door and leave your screen door shut without setting off the alarm.
If you are interested in a different option, the Poolguard PGRM-2 In-Ground Pool Alarm installs directly on the side of your pool, is tamper-proof, and comes with an in-house remote receiver.
2. Custom Fencing
If you don’t already have a fence enclosing your pool or patio, it is a great investment when it comes to safety. A good fence is tall enough to keep children from being able to climb over it and sturdy enough to hold up to the weight if they try. With the included child-proof latch, it eliminates the possibility that your child will get into the pool without someone knowing. If fencing is something you need, we recommend contacting a local professional to discuss your options.
For those who don’t want to go the route of installing fencing, purchasing a pool safety cover is another good choice. This will help you keep children safe (with appropriate supervision) while also blocking any leaves or debris from entering your pool. A pool cover will also come in handy if you decide to winterize and close your pool for a few months.
Safety ropes are a great way for swimmers to stop and catch their breath in the pool, helping everyone stay safe. This one in particular is slightly over 20 feet long and easily adjustable, making it painless to install and giving your guests a visual cue of your pool’s shallow and deep ends.
Lastly, another helpful tool to have in your possession is a pool safety sign. This particular sign lists clear instructions for performing both first aid for choking and CPR. While hopefully you never have to use either of these methods, knowing what to do when the time comes is invaluable. Additionally, this sign includes a place to write numbers for an ambulance, the fire department, or the police station, which could be helpful information if an incident occurs.
