The most important thing you can do to protect your child from the dangers of drowning in your pool is to have a pool safety fence installed professionally. Pool fencing is a physical barrier between the pool and your child, which is immeasurably better than door/window alarms or pool alarms.
The other option, which is not endorsed by the IAFCS is pool netting, which goes over the pool and is held down by cleats around the pool’s exterior. Pool netting is not a great option because it requires the owner to actively secure it around the pool each and every time. It only takes forgetting to secure it one time for a potential tragedy to strike. The best option is a pool safety fence professionally secured around you pool with an auto-close auto-latch gate. The gate is the most important aspect of the fence, as it will always close and latch behind you. It also has a key on the latch so you can lock the pool off completely, giving added peace of mind.
