All pools should have certain safety precautions. With precaution and common sense, drowning deaths can be prevented. Pools should have a pool alarm around them as an important step in protecting your children from accidents in the pool. These alarms are useful in a variety of different ways.
Pool Alarms from Safe Defenses
Some alarms will sound if your children ventures past the gate and near the water. Other types require a child to wear a water-proof bracelet. If the child gets too close to the water, or should accidentally fall into the water, the alarm will sound. They can also be used a sort of invisible fence, sounding any time anyone crosses the laser motion detector.
An Inexpensive Way to Provide Security for Your Family
Pool alarms are usually not very expensive and are a wise and important investment in the safety of your children. Ensure the utmost security and protection for your family with a pool alarm from Safe Defenses.
Gate Alarms – mounted usually to the pool or spa gate and have magnetic switches that activate when the gate is opened
Door Alarms – used when a house serves as a fourth wall of the perimeter of the pool, which can be activated when the house door opens
Window Alarms – like the door alarm, this is used if the house makes up a wall of the pool perimeter and activate when the window is opened
Pool or Spa Floating or Wave Alarms – these are usually mounted on the edge of the pool or in the water and activate when water is displaced
Other Safety Devices
Life Hooks & Shepherd Crooks – Attached to a straight pole, rescue hooks are an excellent safety device to have on hand at any residential or commercial pool. On one end the pole is blunt, usually covered with a plastic stopper. The other end is a large hook big enough to encircle a drowning victim. Lightweight and easy to maneuver and heavy-duty, this instrument could be the difference in the moments it counts the most.
Life Buoys – These familiar ring shaped flotation devices, often called lifesavers, are frequently used as an icon of swimming and pool safety for good reason. Required on any seaworthy vessel more than 16″ in length, they are designed to be thrown to a person in the water, to help them maintain buoyancy and prevent drowning.
