This Near Drowning In Bakersfield Changed Lives

Pool Fence Safety is more than meets the eye! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 10 people die from unintentional drowning every day. And one in five parents falsely believe air-filled water wings can protect their children from drowning incidents in the swimming pool. In 2002, the Paschal family of Bakersfield experienced a near-drowning incident that resulted in severe brain damage to their 21-month-old son Seth within three to five minutes.

Seth’s mother, Jill Paschal, expressed she experienced a number of emotional issues, including depression from blame and guilt. She also emphasized safety precautions, especially for pool fence safety and talked about the importance of meshed fences and pool covers.

“It’s a really good product. If the child tries to climb over it, it bends. Since they don’t have a sturdy grip, they are not likely to climb over and the pool fence safety works. And, for pool covers, a lot of children can fall in and get wrapped up in it,” said Paschal.

Many drowning accidents happen because parents think that their children would yell if they got into trouble, but this far from the truth. Contact an All-Safe dealer in the local Bakersfield area to assist with your pool safety needs.

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.
