Water safety shouldn’t fall off the radar when summer ends. Swimming pools, hot tubs and other bodies of water can still pose a risk for drowning, even after they have been “closed.” Keep your family and pets safe by taking precautions.
Just like in spring and summer, you can use a safety net over your pool in the winter months, too. Before purchasing a safety net, find out if it can withstand winter elements like the Katchakid Pool Safety nets.
Depending on the area you live in you may have a “pillow” in your pool to prevent compression of ice on your pool walls. Find out what types of safety nets are available to you, or other means of closing off the pool.
Find out if your pool alarm can be used with a winter cover. If not, it is worth the expense to buy an alarm that can function in the winter as well.
What else do you do to keep our backyard safe in the winter?
