Are you planning on constructing a new pool in the upcoming year? If you live in Tennessee, you are legally required as of January 2011 to have a proper pool alarm installed before your pool can pass inspection. Even if you don’t live in Tennessee, having a pool alarm is just simply a good idea. There’s no doubt that children and pets benefit from an extra measure of safety around the backyard swimming pool.
Pool alarms alone will not prevent accidental drownings and submersion accidents, though. Responsible homeowners approach pool safety from a number of angles. Pool alarms, pool fences, safety covers, AND reliable adult supervision work together to maintain a safe and fun pool environment.
