No one ever wants to have swimming pool disaster in their homes. You should secure your pool because you might not always be around to monitor your little children and pets playing next to it. When considering additional safety features for your swimming pool, it is vital that you consider more than one of the following pool safety equipment.
Swimming pool safety covers
These are fastened to a pool's deck using straps to stretch the cover over the pool.They come in two types; the solid and mesh pool covers. The mesh pool covers can be used during winter. They need less maintenance since they swiftly blow off any landing debris. What's more, any snow and raindrops will simply drain through the mesh and into the pool. The solid pool covers work in the same way but they can amass rain puddles which can attract children to the safety cover, so it's a good idea to incorporate drain panels into these covers.
Safety alarms for swimming pools
These devices will sound an alarm in case of any unobserved entry into the pool. The gate alarms are fixed onto the pool's gate and go off in case of unauthorized entry attempt. The perimeter alarms use infrared light to form light beams around the pool and are activated when someone breaks through to enter the pool. Others include the wrist alarms which are locked onto your kid's wrist and communicate in case they are immersed into water and the above ground pool alarms which operate using electronic sensors and are activated upon detecting intrusions akin to a small child.
The anti-entrapment device
This works with the safety vacuum release system to provide a rapid vacuum rapid release in case the pool's water suction drain gets blocked. This system works by immediately releasing anyone – your children, an adult, or a pet, whose body, hair, clothing or limb are trapped onto the pool's drain. It is recommended that you hire a pool contractor to properly install and fix the pool safety drain and the anti-entrapment device.
Swimming pool fences
These fences hinder unauthorized access to the pool. They are available in many types and materials. There are, the glass fences, vinyl, steel, aluminum, wood, chain-link and composite fences. All of these fences are made with the full capacity to restrict entry into the pool, but you should consider the one that can maintain your pool's beautiful view while also providing ultimate protection from any danger.
Having more than one pool safety device/equipment can be an effective way of totally preventing any disaster at the pool. Talk to your pool contractor or technician and discuss with them how you can have these safety features installed at your pool.
