8 Best Pool Safety Products for 2021

by May 15, 2021Safety


Getting a pool means the whole family is in for some fun in the sun. But you probably also want to make sure you know how to keep everyone safe.

After all, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for 1- to 4-year-olds. And most of these drownings happen in home baths, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). However, taking a few pool safety and security measures can go a long way in preventing accidents and / or responding quickly to them. These pool alarms and security products can soup up your pool and put your mind at ease.

Pool alarms

A pool alarm can alert you that a child has opened a door or gate to a pool area, or that they have fallen or jumped into the pool. This protection is extra valuable as most drownings occur when adults do not expect the child to swim at all, according to the AAP.

Pool alarms come in a variety of styles and features. You will choose the type that best suits your pool setup and your own personal pool security needs. These may include:

Threshold alarms

A sill basin alarm is attached to a door, window or fence gate leading to the pool. These gadgets trigger an alarm when the door or gate is opened. They are easy for adults to set, but not for children – usually because a disarm button is mounted high or even has a code.

Wall-mounted alarms

A wall-mounted pool security alarm can be attached to the pool wall, patio or fence, usually using screws, so it is a fairly permanent fixture. It can detect waves on the surface of the water – some extra high-tech models also detect underwater movements – and you get a warning if a pet or person enters the pool. You simply turn it off when you are ready for a swim. Either turn it on when you are done, or look for a model that does this automatically after a short period of no use.

Underwater motion detectors

This type of pool alarm is a technician’s dream come true. Underwater motion detectors use sonar to detect anything unusual below the water surface. They tend to be quite sensitive – able to collect anything of 15 kg or more – and may be less likely to create false alarms due to benign disturbances such as a strong gust of wind.

Liquid sensors

Especially ideal for above-ground pools, or if you’d rather not screw anything into your pool wall, is a floating sensor. This type of pool alarm floats on the water surface like a buoy and can detect when a pet or a child enters the pool. A safety alarm with floating pool is also easily portable if you want to take it on holiday.

Pool fence

Pool fencing is essential to keep loved ones as well as children in the neighborhood and animals out of your pool. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a pool fence is the most effective and proven way to prevent young children from drowning.

Pool fences are available in both permanent and portable settings. Look for a fence that is at least four feet high and surrounds the pool on all four sides. For the safety of the pool, the fence should not be able to be climbed and vertical slats should be less than 4 inches apart. Any pole lock should be at least 54 inches from the ground so that small children cannot open them alone, and the gate should be self-closing and self-locking so that it does not accidentally get caught, AAP recommends.

Pool cover

A pool cover protects the pool from leaves, petals and dirt. Having one can also deter children (and neighbors) from trying to jump in the pool. To prevent a child from falling and slipping under the cover, make sure it covers the entire pool securely. Look for a pool cover that conforms to the ASTM International Safety Guidelines. (It must be labeled ASTM certified.)

Consider an automatic pool cover as they are made to hold a lot of weight and seal the pool on all sides. In addition, they are super convenient to use because heavy lifting is not necessary. Knowing that floating pool covers can actually be a safety risk as they make the pool surface look like solid ground, but a person stepping on top can still fall in and even be caught or hidden from sight.

Poolnet

A pool net is an alternative to a pool cover that is often cheaper and lighter and easier to place over the pool. A net does not keep your pool free of leaves and other dirt, such as a pool cover can, but it may deter someone from entering your pool. However, know that a child or a pet can get a limb trapped in the net, so it is important to pay attention even if you have one.

Before you buy, check the safety and security regulations in your area. A specific type of pool alarm, fence and / or coverage may be required by law.

And of course, follow the safety precautions in the pool, including keeping an eye on children close to the pool and taking CPR training. Swimming lessons for everyone in the family are also important. If a child is missing, always look in the pool first.

Go now and enjoy a safe swim!
