If there's one thing that free-range and helicopter parents can agree on, it's that there's no such thing as too much safety when it comes to swimming pools. The most vulnerable population in terms of drowning are toddlers, especially if they somehow find themselves near a pool without an adult realizing. Because many toddlers either don't know how to swim or have only had basic swim lessons and little experience considering their age, there are many safety precautions pool owners with kids can and should take, including purchasing one of these genius pool alarms.
In addition to having a gate around the pool and/or pool stairs and an alarm that sounds when a door in the house is opened to alert you that your toddler might be going outside, a pool alarm helps to go the extra mile by alerting you that something, possibly your child, is in the water, despite your other protective measures.
With so many cases of toddlers drowning or experiencing near misses due to finding their way to a pool unsupervised, ensure that your pool is as safe as possible so that such a tragedy hopefully never occurs on your watch.
