Make Your Pool A Safe Haven

Nothing cures the summertime blues like a refreshing dip in a pool. While they may be super coolers, pools can also be dangerous. Make sure yours is a safe place to be this summer.

Create a barrier (or two) around your pool. Make sure fences or walls are tall enough (at least 4 feet tall) and that any gates in the fence or wall are kept closed and latched. The latch should be high enough that a small child can't reach it.

If your home is part of the barrier around your pool, be careful to keep your doors closed and locked as well. You could also install an alarm system that is triggered when a door is opened.

Another good safety precaution is a power safety cover that can be placed over the surface of the water. Other devices emit an alarm when something or someone touches the surface of the water.

Above-ground pools that are accessed by steps or ladders need to have safety barriers, too. Steps or ladders should lift and lock or be removed when the pool is not being used.

Remember, if a child is missing, check the pool first. Seconds count.
