How Can I Make My Swimming Pool Safer?

As summer comes to a close and the kids return to school, now is a great time to plan ahead and think about what remodeling you'd like done on your swimming pool, spa, or backyard living space.  For instance, you might want to add a few of these safety features to take extra precautions in the outdoors!

1. Swimming Pool Covers

Swimming pool covers are a good way to ensure that the kids playing outside won't be in danger when the swimming pool isn't in use.  In places with constant sun like Southern California, they're also great for water conservation!  And with California's impending El Nino, they can help prevent excess rain water in the swimming pool or spa.

2. Fences and Gates

Contact your local swimming pool builder to see what fence options you have to install surrounding the swimming pool or spa.  This not only help drowning prevention, but also can help prevent other damage to the swimming pool, spa, and surrounding landscape.

4. iAquaLink

With an app on your phone, you can control all of the elements and features of your swimming pool, spa, and outdoor area.  This can help homeowners like you monitor and regulate the use of your backyard - whether it's the spa, swimming pool, lights, or fire features.


3. Extra Lighting

You can never have too much lighting in your outdoor living areas.  Whether it's LED color-changing lights in your swimming pool and spa, rustic tree and fence lighting, or solar-powered lamps, there are plenty of ways to brighten up the space.  And any of these can help accident prevention as the seasons pass.

5. Outdoor Alarm

You can add an alarm to your fence, gate, or backyard door to help monitor when kids or guests enter and exit your backyard space.
