How A Pool Fence Can Help Prevent Accidents Around Your Pool



How Fencing Can Help Prevent Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming pools provide an excellent source of relaxation and hours of entertainment. They draw interest and attraction from everyone in the neighborhood, especially from children. But while you sit in your favorite beach chair on the deck as your kids and their friends splash and play in the pool, take a moment to think about the potential for dangers as well.

Your own personal oasis could be dangerous. 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 these pool accidents from happening.

1. Drowning

A neighbor’s daughter plays outside in the summer sun. 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, doesn’t consider the danger of splashing around for a little while.

She 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! Too many young children like her drown in personal pools every year.

You can help prevent this swimming pool accident with a pool fence to keep the little ones out when you’re not around. Whether it’s your own child or your neighbor’s kids, pool fencing is an essential safety barrier for saving lives.

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’ve forgotten something outside. Maybe it’s your glasses, or you left the pool light on. Either way, you go outside to get it. But it’s so dark that you cannot see very well. You can’t tell the difference between grass, wood, and the slippery cement. It’s a pool accident waiting to happen.

As you step onto the wet concrete, you suddenly fall to the ground with a painful thud. There’s no way for you to catch yourself, and it’s likely that you are injured.

These risks grow even worse if you have elderly people living with you, such as parents or grandparents. The effects could be devastating and easily lead to an emergency room visit. A mesh pool fence can help prevent damaging falls by the pool, especially falls into the pool.

3. Chemical Exposure

Your kid has a friend over to play. They’re generally well behaved, and you might not feel the need to keep a constant eye on them. But it’s a hot day, and they decide to go swimming without your permission.

But something is wrong; the water burns their eyes and after awhile, their skin becomes red and irritated. Little did they know, you had shocked the pool with a strong dose of chlorine. Children swimming without supervision is incredibly dangerous anytime – often leading to fatal swimming pool accidents. Chemical exposure is just an added risk.

A tall, mesh pool fence surrounding your pool area helps to prevent people from entering any time you don’t give your permission. It helps save lives and protect you from liability, especially if you live in an area where pool fences are required.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
