Let’s Talk Pool Safety This Summer!
As we dive into summer, it’s time to have a serious chat about pool safety and the importance of supervision. The Magna Latch Report from our partner D&D Technologies has revealed some surprising stats that we all need to pay attention to.
Did you know that over half of us with pools admit to leaving the gate open sometimes? And a quarter of pool owners have had a scary moment with kids getting into the pool area when they shouldn’t have. We get it, life gets busy, but these are risks we just can’t take.
We are super passionate about ensuring families put the utmost attention into pool safety and supervision when children are in the pool, or any body of water. That is why we partner with www.checkyourpoolgate.com.au . We were shocked to hear that so many parents leave kids unattended by the pool to do chores. We’ve got to keep our eyes on the water at all times.
And here’s something else – 30% of pools don’t have that extra safety oomph, like a lock or an alarm. With a third of families having faced pool-related scares, we know it’s a big deal.
This summer, let’s make a promise to check our pool gates, fix them up quick if they’re not working right, and always, always keep an eye on our little swimmers. Remember, a safe pool is a fun pool!
