Ladders and Steps
For above ground pools, a fence and/or a pull up and locking ladder are musts. The ladder must be installed properly and checked regularly to make certain it is still firmly attached. Swimming pool hand rails and stair rails provide an extra protection against slipping on stairs and steps. There are a few options available for entry into your above ground swimming pool. The choice that you make will depend on your particular needs and design preferences. You can choose from simple A-frame ladders to grand entrance drop in steps. There should also be no walking around, or sitting on the edge of the pool; falling off and hitting the ground can cause injuries and sitting on the sides could cause the pool to collapse.
Above ground pool alarms are also a great safety product. Above ground pool alarms use a new sensing method that requires no adjustments and is designed to detect intrusions similar to a 1- year old child weighing 18 pounds and up. The alarm is activated with an on/off key - simply remove the key to turn the alarm on. Entry into the pool by children, pets, or intruders is detected by the unit's electronic sensor, and sets off a loud, pulsating alarm both in the home and at the pool. The in-house remote receiver has a range up to 200 ft., and comes with a 12-volt power supply. Safe, simple, and easy to operate, the alarm snaps onto the top rail of your above ground pool. Different models are available for above ground swimming pools including both surface and subsurface wave detection. To store your alarm while using the pool, snap it on the outside of the pool.
