How An Affordable Pool Fence Can Help Prevent Accidents Around Your Pool
Swimming pools provide an excellent source of relaxation and hours of entertainment. They draw interest and attraction from everyone in the neighborhood from kids to your trendy friends that live around the block. But while you sit in your favorite beach chair on the deck as your kids and their friends splash and play in the crystalline waters of the azure pool, take a moment to think about the potential for danger that it can pose as well. Whether you realize it or not, your own personal oasis could also cause havoc in your household. A number of different scenarios could happen without you even realizing it, and most of them are preventable. Take a look at some of these scenarios, and consider having a mesh pool fence installed around your pool to prevent them from happening.
A little girl laughs and giggles as the sun filters through the leaves, dappling the grass she sits on. It’s such a hot day, but she’s had so much fun playing with her dolls beneath the old oak tree. Suddenly, she realizes she’s both thirsty and hot, with sticky sweat clinging to her hands and face. She looks over into one of the yards across the street at the neighbor’s pool. The surface of the water gleams enticingly, and being the friendly four year old she is, she’s sure they won’t mind if she splashes around for a little while. Then, she can go home and change her clothes. As she stands up, she brushes the dirt off of her legs, and toddles quickly in the direction of the glistening water. She leaps in, but suddenly realizes that the water goes over her head – even though she jumped in the shallow end! Luckily, this is just a scenario, because that cute little girl would have been in grave danger, as many young children drown in personal pools every year. This is perfectly preventable with a mesh pool fence to keep the little ones out. Whether it’s your own child or your neighbor’s kids, you can take a proactive step in protecting them by installing a pool fence around your pool.

2. Slipping and Falling
The rain has left everything soaked with water, as steam rises up from the concrete on the deck. Night has fallen, and you suddenly realize that you left your radio outside while doing some yard work! Even worse, it’s probably ruined, considering how much rain fell. Even though you can’t switch the outside lights on due to a power outage, you decide to march out and try to find your radio to see if it still works. But it’s so dark, that you cannot see very well. You can’t tell the difference between grass, wood, and the slippery concrete, but you stomp outside anyway, irritated that your radio may well be ruined. Suddenly, as you step onto the wet concrete, you feel your body bust to the ground painfully with a thud. There’s no way for you to catch yourself, and it will leave a mark. Again, this is a scenario. And you’re probably much smarter than leaving your radio outside during a rainstorm, of course. But imagine if you have elderly people living with you, such as parents or grandparents, and a similar situation happens. The effects could be devastating and lead to an emergency room very easily. Once again, a mesh affordable pool fence could have kept the person from falling. Plus, it’s mesh. So if someone ran into it, it wouldn’t hurt, just catch their fall.
3. Chemical Exposure
Johnny rides his bike home from school on a hot afternoon. Sweat drips from his forehead and chin, as he squints his his to push up the final hill. He makes it again! He loves riding his bike, but it’s just so hot today. A nice dip in a cool swimming pool would be awesome. He knows a guy in his neighborhood has one that he keeps nice clean all the time. The surface the water always glistens in that sky-blue color commonly associated with a well-kept swimming pool. Johnny races in that direction, leaving his bike behind him.
