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.

My Seven Year Old Daughter just yelled from the bathroom "I cut myself"...
o-m-g It wasn't that bad. She was reaching for her toothbrush and cut herself on a disposable razor my wife left facing up in the toothbrush holder without a little plastic cover on it. Luckily just a little superficial scrape; coulda been allot worse. Moral of the story: You have to constantly pay attention to how you leave things around the house when you have youngin's in the house. Take a look around,pay attention to detail and you can find plenty of accidents waiting to happen. Just use your common sense and Child Safety Proof your house.
