Swimming Pool Safety
Anyone that lives in Rustenburg can testify of the intense heat that summer brings. That is why so many people have a pool in their back yard. A pool is an amazing advantage for those who have one but it can also be a dangerous hazard. Small children or adults can slip and fall, resulting in serious injury.
Countless babies drown in pools every year. Sometimes it can’t be avoided that children, elderly or handicapped may fall in. That is why it is important to be safe and have a decent pool net or cover. In some cases, even adults may lose control and slip toward the pool. Having a pool net or cover can prevent bad accidents even when there are no kids, handicapped or elderly with you as anyone can slip and fall. A pool safety net is a simple approach to avoid accidental drowning.
The pool net cover stretches tightly across the pool, above the water and prevents unwanted access. The pool net utilizes custom hooks and anchors in the deck or pavement to secure the net. The squares of a pool net are too small for a child’s head or body to fit through and are too large to allow them to jump or play on the pool net. If a child accidentally falls or attempts to crawl onto the pool safety net, the child’s arms or legs go through the net squares. This prevents them from advancing further onto the net. The child will typically cry or make other sounds to indicate their distress and the adult guardian can then go to their aid. As with all safety barriers the net is only to be used as a deterrent and the child should never be left alone near the pool.
