Do You Need A Pool Alarm?

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), “Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger. Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States.”

From 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States—about ten deaths per day. About one in five people who die from drowning are children aged 14 and younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency care for nonfatal submersion injuries.

In California, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for children aged 1 to 4. A child can die in just 2 inches of water. Most of these children were out of sight for only 5 minutes.

These are scary statistics and should be reason alone to purchase the best inground pool alarm system you can find.

How Does A Pool Alarm Work?

After you have completed a day of fun in the pool, it’s time for your Swimming Pool Safety System to go to work. It will automatically turn on after 100 minutes of inactivity and stay on, until it has been manually turned back off to the Swim Mode. Even if someone tries to tamper with the unit, an alarm will sound, alerting you that someone is in the pool area, giving you further peace of mind.

The sensor is placed in the pool and will monitor any large splashes or ripples that occur while it is on duty. The sensor can be adjusted to accommodate for wind and bad weather. The alarm will sound at the unit on the pool, as well as the receiver unit located in your house. It is a good idea to notify your neighbors of the sound, so they too can be on alert, if they hear the siren go off and perhaps save the life of a small child or pet.

Is A Pool Alarm Required By Law?

You should definitely check with your state and local ordinances before placing a pool on your property. You may also find it prudent to check, even if you have owned a pool for years. The laws may have been updated and you may find yourself in a liability issue. States like California, Connecticut, New York and Tennessee have already enacted statewide laws considering pool alarms and many others are sure to follow suit, as this is a very important safety device that no pool owner really should be without.

I Supervise My Children, Why Do I Need A Swimming Pool Alarm System?

Unfortunately, we can not possibly keep that vigilant of an eye on our children at all times. Little ones stray off quickly. Parents get distracted by their other children or pets. It only takes a second for your little one to fall into the pool. They may have been chasing after their ball, or running after the dog. Most parents report never hearing a sound when their child has fallen into the pool. It is not necessarily about good parenting practices, but good safety practices.

A pool alarm also will keep neighborhood children from entering your swimming area unannounced. Even though young teens have been taught not to trespass on other peoples property, the temptation can prove too great on a sweltering hot summer day, and they know you are off on vacation and probably would never notice. You certainly do not want to come home to find some unfortunate accident has occurred while you were away.

Other Advantages To Installing A Swimming Pool Alarm System

* Save on your homeowners insurance. Many companies will give a discount if a Pool Security System is in place. Check with your insurance carrier and see if you qualify for extra savings, by installing this simple safety device on your pool.

* Easy to Install. Pool Alarms have become such an easy to install DIY project, you can have it complete in just a few minutes. It only takes a few screws and batteries. Nothing could be easier.

The best protection poolside, is a responsible, attentive adult supervising the activities going on in the area. Unfortunately, that cannot be achieved 24 hours a day, so we need alternative methods to help guard against accidents, or unwanted activity in our yards. In addition to a fixed pool alarm, you might also consider adding an alarmed door gate. You could use a simple Magnetic Door Alarm. One side holds a magnet that you affix to one side of the gate wall, while you attach the alarm side to the main door itself. Every time the gate is opened, an alarm will sound, alerting you that someone has entered the pool area.
