Drowning is the leading cause of death for children under five. Aim for layers of protection. Here are some of our favorite resources to keep your little ones safe around water.
Pool fencing is the only layer of protection that provides a physical barrier between your home and the pool. A mesh pool fence is a must. If you wouldn’t own a car without seat belts, do not own a pool without a fence. Pool fences should be at least 4 feet high and have a self-closing, self-latching gate that opens away from the pool.Life Saver Pool Fence
