Having “layers of protection” is vital when considering pool safety and your family’s security.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.

Even the most attentive adult can be distracted, and there’s a number of videos and news articles online that report the tragic news of small children gaining access to pools – often on neighboring properties – before any adult was aware that they were in danger.

A safety cover is another layer of protection you can use to help ensure no one will be able to gain access to your pool.
