Montgomery County in Pennsylvania is home to many residents with pools in their backyards. A recent survey found that 32% of households have children under the age of 18 in their homes. If you are a homeowner with a swimming pool in Montgomery County, safety must be a top priority due to the danger an unguarded pool poses. We recommend installing multiple layers of protection to keep your children and family safe – like a pool or door alarm, pool safety cover and a pool fence.
Did you know that an unfenced pool actually poses more danger to your family than a loaded gun? In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that approximately one in five people who die from drownings are children under the age of 14. Furthermore, the CDC Reports that drowning kills more children ages 1-4 years than anything other cause except for birth defects. This is why if you own a home with a pool, installing a child pool safety fence is a must. The good news is, a Life Saver Pool Fence is the best and safest pool fencing available for homeowners to protect their families from accidental drownings.
The CDC reported that more than 3,700 Americans drowned in 2017, with more than 700 of them under the age of 14. In Pennsylvania, the drowning death rate per 100,000 residents was 0.8 in the year 2017. While they did not fall in the top 5 for states for drowning, this is still a high number of drowning deaths.
In Montgomery County, all swimming pools are required to have a pool barrier that is at minimum 48” tall. The pool gates must open outward and away from the pool and be self-closing/self-latching. The home should also be equipped with door alarms if they provide access to the pool area.
Why Most Parents Choose To Install A Life Saver Pool Fence?
The Life Saver Pool Fence is the strongest removable mesh pool fence available on the market and it is backed by a lifetime limited warranty and factory-direct customer support which will allow you to enjoy your fence with total confidence.
The pool safety fence can be installed onto concrete, brick pavers, flagstone, fieldstone, Bluestone, tile, wood, Trex, dirt, grass, and mulch.
The mesh safety fence we use is strong and durable enough to handle all kinds of weather conditions including cold, Northeast winters. Another great feature of the Life Saver pool fence is that the fences are removable and can easily be taken down in minutes if you are entertaining or want to remove them for the winter months. The poles we use for our pool fence are the strongest available in the industry, and the mesh we use is nearly indestructible making our fence the most ideal option for any family. The mesh is also nearly transparent which means you can easily see the water while your children are playing in the pool.
In addition to a lack of a pool safety fence, additional risk factors for drowning in a residential pool includes a lack of adult supervision when children are outside or using the pool – even looking down at your phone for a few seconds is enough time for a drowning to occur! Other risks are not installing door or pool alarms in your home, not providing your children with water safety survival skills that include swimming lessons and what to do if they should fall into a pool.
It’s also important to be aware of risk factors like mental impairment from substances like drugs or alcohol, or health issues like seizure disorders, autism or other mental impairments that may cause a person not to realize the risks of a pool. Young children and the elderly also have a higher risk of drowning.
