As summertime approaches, you anticipate the heat and start thinking of every possible option for keeping cool. Often diving into a pool is the first option we think of. Pool parties become the go-to solution for hot summers enabling you to keep cool and have fun at the same time. Pool parties are great for all ages, but when it comes to children you want to make sure safety comes first.
Installing a fence around the pool is the best way to address safety issues. Shockingly, there are a high number of drowning incidents involving children and an even greater number of pools in the Sacramento area without fences. Even when you are at your most vigilant, accidents can still happen, so installing a fence is the best way to prevent serious injuries.
In the U.S, pool drowning accounts for the most deaths in children, under the age of 5. There are hundreds of pools in the Bay Area and greater Sacramento, but not all are protected with fences. It’s extremely important to supervise kids when they are around a pool, but this may not always be possible. The more cautious you are, the safer your children will be. Investing in a self-latching pool fence is the most cautious route you can take towards ensuring pool safety.
