Mesh pool covers are the best way to ensure that your pool is a safe environment when closed for the season, protecting loved ones, children and reducing liability for pool owners. 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 and Prevention, CDC, drowing is the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 4 except for birth defects, and the second leading cause of unintentional injury death for children ages 1 to 14 after automobile accidents. It is estimated that 3,960 people die in the U.S. each year from unintentional drownings, which eqauls about 11 drowning deaths each day.
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. There are an estimated 8,080 nonfatal drownings each day in the U.S., averaging about 22 nonfatal drowings each day.
Pools owned by friends and family are where the majority of these tragic drowning accidents occur. Take action with a mesh pool cover and prevent drowning incidents with a safe environment for children, adults and pets.
