One of the best ways to enjoy your swimming pool is to make sure that everyone is always safe, so that you can relax. To ensure that everyone remains safe, even after you leave the pool area, you should create a barrier of no-entry.
The easiest way to do this is to lock up access or install an alarm or safety device at every pool entrance. Installing a safety fence with a self-latching gate is only the first part of this equation, and they definitely help reduce the threats of drownings. In Las Vegas, Safe Defenses help home and property owners also to install alarms and other safety devices on pools and access doors, and highly recommends them on any pool barrier.
How a Pool Lock Can Prevent Entry
Self closing and self latching gates are standard on pool barriers, but they only provide no entry for little ones that can’t reach the latch. Once a child has grown beyond this height, usually the height of your fence, they no longer provide the same protection. By installing a pool lock on your swimming pool gate, you can be sure that even when a child can reach this height, that they can’t enter the pool area.
Another layer of protection is the installation of additional safety devices or pool alarms. Should your little one accidentally immerse in your pool the alarm will notify you of the event, potentially saving you the critical moments you needs to pull them to safety.
