The ABCD of Pool Safety

Drownings and near drownings are on the rise in the valley this summer. The accidents happen every year, but so far this year appears to be worse than others. Theres a good chance of not hearing a child who’s in the process of drowning. That’s why constant, visual contact is the only option.

More than swimming lessons are needed to protect your child from drowning. Water play can turn tragic in a matter of seconds,

My Doggy Door is a Danger

We have a doggy door for our Jack Russell, but the problem is our children can also pass through the doggy door as well. Thank goodness for our Pool Safety Fence.

I ran to answer the phone the other day and my three year old crawled through the doggy door and was sitting next to the pool.

Saltwater Chlorine Generators & Corrosion

Saltwater Chlorine generators that have become very popular over the last few years are proving to have a serious side effect, corrosion!
