If you are wondering which pool alarm should you get then you are right, there are quite a number of different choices of different types of alarms. If you did not get one installed when you installed your pool then there are other types available that you can use.

A pool alarm is a really essential piece of equipment to keep safe most often children and animals who may be liable to fall in the pool. But obviously it can detect any adult as well who may be vulnerable to falling in. Children under 4 are those who are most likely to drown in a swimming pool so if you have young children and a pool then you are probably going to want to get a pool alarm. Having a pool cover will not stop a small child from drowning as they can drown in a very small amount of water.

683 drownings occurred in swimming pools in the USA between 2005 and 2009 according to the CDC so you have to wonder how many of these lives could have been saved if a pool alarm had been fitted?
