Swimming Pool Alarms: Protect Your Children, Neighborhood Children and Pets - Articles Surfing


There are a large number of pool accessories. Lots of them are designed for fun, but others can be lifesaving. If you own a pool, regardless of whether or not you have kids, you need a pool alarm.

Many people mistakenly believe that pool alarms are only needed for families with small children. However, families with small kids are not the only ones who may benefit from swimming pool alarms.

Not only could that alarm help to protect your guests, but it could also protect children that just wander into your backyard.

Swimming pool alarms come in a wide variety of different styles. However, they all have the same purpose. That purpose is to keep young, unattended children away from a swimming pool. If they do make it near a swimming pool, the pool alarm will alert you or other adults, immediately. As you can see, pool alarms are not just a pool accessory, but a lifesaving device.

If you visit your local pool supply store or review the available merchandise online, you will find underwater pool alarms, above water pool alarms, or gate alarms.

Gate alarms are the most popular of all pool alarms. The alarm is positioned on the gate of your pool fence. Depending on the model you buy, the largest part of gate alarms will sound when someone passes through the gate unnoticed or if the gate door was left open.

Gate alarms are the most effective pool alarms available. By properly using a pool gate alarm, your child will never even make it to the pool.

If you do not have a pool fence, you can examine other types of alarms. One of these types is a surface alarm, also called an above water alarm. It is designed to sound when someone comes too close to the pool. Lots of these alarms come with a predetermined barrier. That barrier may only be a foot, but it may also be up to four.

The problem with surface alarms is that they can be easily setoff. Whether an animal enters the area or the wind blows debris past the alarm, your alarm will sound.

Underwater pool alarms are similar to surface alarms. They detect motion in the interior of the pool. You will be notified whenever something enters the water. So, if your child falls into the pool, your pool alarm will automatically sound.
