Pool Safety

Safety Should Always Be No.1!

The swimming pool safety net is a simple cost effective way to secure a swimming pool and does not detract from the aesthetic of the pool, still allowing a view of the pool water. 

Safety is No.1!

Pool safety cover

 Another option for securing a swimming pool is the solid safety cover. This is a cover manufactured from pvc and supported in place by poles at regular intervals across the pool. The solid safety cover uses minimal fittings and attachments and is ratcheted into place and kept under tension. Designed to support the weight of two adults and a child it also helps keep the pool clean and free of leaves and debris, reduces water evaporation and chemical use. The solid safety cover is not as versatile as the safety net and can only be used on certain pool shapes and sizes. The fitted cover is rather heavy and requires two people to fit and remove. It does however provide a high degree of safety and there are less fittings and components on the paving surround. It offers more functionality in that it helps reduce maintenance and running costs. It is more expensive than a traditional safety net. The solid safety cover is another excellent way to secure a pool. 

Pool fencing

 The third option is a pool fence. Pool fencing is traditionally made using galvanised steel, with alternatives now made from fabric, wood, plastic and glass – all of which need be erected to a minimum height of 1.2 m, with no means for a child to climb over or under the fence. It should be a smooth vertical surface, secured into the ground, and the gate must be lockable and self-closing. Pool fencing provides a means to secure the area that a pool is in rather than the pool itself. Many people feel that a fence provides a higher degree of safety than a net, but many drownings still happen in pools that are fenced. The main benefit of a pool fence is that there is no fitting or removal required to access the pool.
