Pool safety guidelines are just as important for above ground pools as they are for inground pools. Here are a few pool safety products for above ground pools:
Above ground pools should have a fence barrier installed around the top edge of the pool and along the stairway leading up to the swim platform. The stairs to the above ground pool should also be gated if they are not retractable.
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. To store your alarm while using the pool, snap it on the outside of the pool.
Swimming pool hand rails and stair rails provide an extra protection against slipping on stairs and steps.
Pool signs and depth markers are also extremely important to have in the pool area. These pool depth markers can be applied to vinyl, ceramic tile and tempered glass overlays. Signs that should be in your pool area can include “No Jumping”, “No Diving, Shallow Water” and “Slippery When Wet”.
You should also have basic safety equipment available such as lifesaver rings and a Shepherd’s Crook.
