Residential Swimming Pools And Spas

Although supervision of young children is the primary prevention strategy, inevitable lapses make supervision alone insufficient. Additional layers of protection can secure the pool area, and/or delay the child from entering water unsupervised. The following are components to consider:

  • Florida’s 64E9 Regulations
  • Home safety barriers (gates, locks, sounding door alarms)
  • Staying away from drains: the suction in big drains can pull on hair and keep you underwater
