How can you keep kids from falling in an inground pool?

Keep Out Kids

Pools are great for kids—they're fun, can keep them cool in the summer, and are a great place for parties. However, without adults, swimming pools can be a problem.

Inground swimming pools are built to be level with the land (this can be a hazard once you have a child that is able to walk or even crawl). If you're not careful they could end up in the pool alone. The simple solution—a fence. Build it soon after the pool is complete!

*When constructing a fence, make sure it's made of sturdy material that is not spaced wide enough that a child can crawl through. Also, make sure the lock is high enough that the child can't fiddle with it (for added peace of mind you should also give your child swimming lessons).
