Installing a pool alarm can prevent accidents

Especially if children use your pool, it is important to make sure your pool is as safe as possible. There are certain safety tools to making a pool safe.

The pool is a source of endless entertainment and a place to make fond memories for you and your family. However, pools require constant supervision by adults to make sure children are playing safe in the pool. Never let kids swim unsupervised. Even if you have a shallow pool, it only takes a second for an accident to happen. Sometimes kids play too rough and get injured, grow exhausted, or simply aren't strong enough swimmers. If your kids have guests over, you are responsible for their safety along with your own children.

There are other instances where the pool presents a safety hazard. Maybe a child is playing in the backyard and accidentally falls into the pool when there is no adult around, or they enter the pool without permission. Or, uninvited guests can try to take advantage of your pool at night or while you are out of town. Pets can also fall into the pool and may not know how to swim. There are some tools you can use for times like this.

There are safety covers available that come in mesh or solid that are held in place by anchors. In addition to this, it is smart to install a pool alarm. The Espio Fall Detecting Pool Alarm is a great system because it can be installed under the pool coping, so it does not take away from the aesthetics of your pool or get in the way during swimming. The system has an indoor remote so you can turn it on or off without having to go outside and is compatible with most automatic pool covers. After swimmers leave the pool, the system automatically re-arms itself.

This pool alarm monitors the surface of a pool and sounds an alert if anything enters the pool. You would think this could result in many false alarms since leaves and other debris sometimes touch the surface of the pool, but the alarm calibrates itself to its environment after installation so that it is not going off after minimal water disturbances.

If a child or pet falls into the pool or gets in without permission, the alarm will sound, giving you a chance to prevent an accident from happening. This alarm is available at an online swimming pool supplies store. €
