Safety in backyard pools
If you own a swimming pool in your home there is great possibility that there is a constant upkeep to maintaining it. There are also some dangers that come with owning one. This does not mean that you have to get rid of of your pool, just means that pool safety measures should be taken. Residential swimming pools can become a danger zone if you have small children.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC, there is approximately 300 deaths every year of children under 5 drowning in swimming pools and more than 3,200 are hospitalized due to being submerged under water. Children move fast, they are curious, and adventurous. One minute your child can be playing in the living room and the next they’re already out the door. These deaths can be minimized and prevented if proper safety precautions are taken.
