Summertime is a great time to own a swimming pool. There’s nothing quite as refreshing as taking a dip in cool water when the sun is beating down on you. However, the enjoyment that comes from owning a swimming pool also comes with the responsibility of making sure that it’s used safely. Along with clearly communicating with your kids to make sure they know that they need to have an adult supervising their use of the pool, there are practical steps you can take to keep your pool safe, like installing an alarm system.
Some types of pool alarms include sub-surface disturbance sensors, which can identify waves crashing against the pool walls. Others include proximity alarms, which can make you aware of activity around the entire pool area. Other systems include wristbands that are worn by children that alert parents when water is detected on the wristband. You’ll need to choose which alarm (or set of alarms) is best for your unique situation.
