3. Surface wave alarms or underwater alarms can be a great safety precaution for families with both pools and children, particularly children under the age of five.
4. Remove tree limbs that hang over a pool area, as well as chairs, ladders and other objects from around pool areas that could be used by children to climb over a fence surrounding a pool.
5. Keep all grates and drain covers in good working order, and ensure that these devices are always securely in place. Even if a child knows how to swim, it is often accidents involving entrapment of hair, clothing or body parts in grates and drains that lead to deaths by drowning. Drain covers should be compliant, and for a pool owner that is unsure, a pool or spa specialist can assist in determining whether or not covers are fully compliant.
6. When leaving a pool, remove all toys. Toys can potentially serve as a way to entice children into entering a pool when unattended, so take away the temptation provided by these items.
7. Always keep a cellular or portable telephone nearby when a children is swimming, in case of emergency.
