More than 900 children between 1 and 14 die each year in drowning accidents. In California, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for children 1-4 years of age.
Soon people will be getting their pools ready for swimming weather. Halleluah! That means summer is around the corner. But is your pool child safe? If you have a pool and you don't have a pool alarm you should look into getting one. These simple devices can help prevent a real tragedy from happening and set your mind at ease that you have some kind of safeguard to keep you aware of an accidental fall into the pool. They clip on to the side of your pool and detect waves in the still water. You can adjust the sensitivity so that wind does not cause false alarms.
The Pool Alarm comes with a remote receiver which can be mounted in your home up to 200 feet from the main unit. It comes with a 12 volt power supply. The Pool Alarm uses one a 9-volt battery (not included) which should last approximately one year.
