Owning a pool is a great way to have a lot of fun, exercise and entertain, although the top priority of any pool owner must be safety. Securing a safe place where children and people of all ages can enjoy your pool without a tragic accident is critical. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 10 people each day will die from an unintentional drowning. Of these, one in five are children 14 years of age or younger.
Nonfatal drowning injuries can result in long-term disabilities such as severe brain damage, learning and memory problems and a permanent loss of basic functioning. Pools owned by friends and family are where the majority of these tragic drowning accidents occur. Take action with a swimming pool safety cover and prevent drowning incidents with a safe environment for children, adults and pets.
ASTM Rated Swimming Pool Safety Covers
The Swimming Pool Store offers pool safety covers which meet the standards set by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM). ASTM F 1346-91 details the requirements for swimming pool and spa covers in three different classifications for manual safety covers, power safety covers and “other” which do not meet safety requirements. Pool safety covers in the “other” category do not provide a safe barrier for children ages five and under.
