Drowning only takes minutes to leave someone with permanent damage. Children can drown in any amount of water, whether it be an entire pool or just a couple of inches. Many people worry a lot about pool safety, but they forget that a spa also puts kids at risk for drowning. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can keep your kids safe this season.
One of the best ways to keep unwanted guests out of your spa or swim spa is by adding a fence around the outside. Safety latches will ensure that kids need to ask a grownup before they head for the spa area. It will also help to keep out any other kids that may live in your neighborhood in order to keep you from ending up with a lawsuit on your hands. Fencing not only keeps people out, but also wildlife and other pets. Protect yourself and your spa by adding a fence this year.
Along with safety latches, you can also install alarms on your gate. This will get your attention if you happen to not be in the area of the spa at the time someone tries to enter the gate. Alarms can be very helpful if someone was to get through the gate that you didn’t want to, and can alert you from any area in your yard. The noise can save you from a potential disaster, and having a warning system can give you the peace of mind you need to work in your yard.
Choosing a safety cover for your spa or swim spa can dramatically decrease the chances of someone getting caught in the water. Often covers are bulky and hard to remove. If one person tries to do it themselves, they may get caught under the cover in the water. This can cause them to become trapped and increase drowning risks. Instead, opt for a safety cover that one person can remove by themselves like the End 2 End Swim Spa Cover.
Make sure that there is no water on the top of your spa. Kids can drown in only a few inches of water if an accident occurs. Any standing water can become a backyard hazard. Get a cover that repels the water instead of gathering it. This will keep your spa safe and all the kids that come to visit your yard safe too.
