Most homeowners see their swimming pool as “a memory-maker.” What else can bring so many fond memories of babies, children, teenagers and adults having fun with friends and family? Yet in all this delight, we must remember that a swimming pool has risks, just like any other item in your home.
The good news is that over the years, the swimming pool industry has made great strides in improving the safety of swimming pools. Many years ago, the industry created non-slip surfaces, to reduce the likelihood of slips and falls. Fences and alarms added another layer of protection. Most cities, in fact, have specific requirements for fencing around a swimming pool.
