4 Swimming Pool Safety Gadgets 29th January 2017
An important aspect of luxury swimming pool design is safety, especially if you have young children and pets that could be at risk if you don’t factor this in when planning your pool construction at the outset. These days, there are countless gadgets out there to help you maximise poolside health and safety – here are just a couple of ideas to consider.
This works in both in-ground and above-ground pools, featuring voice prompts, immersion and an in-home remote unit. It can be used alongside other pool alarms and is battery operated so you don’t have to worry about wiring and electrical outlets. It simply installs easily using a deck mounting bracket.
This is an underwater motion alarm that uses a sonar grid to detect when there is a breach, at which point an alarm will sound. What’s great about these is that because they use sonar instead of motion, there’s no chance of a false alarm.
The Safety Turtle has a battery life of up to four years and is worn on the wrist by your child, or someone else who’s swimming ability may not be that strong. When the Turtle is immersed in water, a loud alarm instantly sounds and will carry on until it’s reset.
If you have a breed of dog that isn’t the best of swimmers, then something like the Skamper Ramp could be a good investment as it allows them to get out of the pool easily. Other animals can use it too, so if you live in the countryside you could save a few lives.
