Swimming Pool Alarm - The Most Necessary Pool Accessory
Pool alarms are one accessory that is a must have for your swimming pool as they offer protection in and around the backyard swimming pool to decrease the chances of child accidents. There are many varieties of pool alarms in the market and sometimes it may be difficult to know which one to choose. Many people mistakenly believe that these devices are only needed for families with small children. However, families with small children are not the only ones who may benefit from them.
Swimming pool alarms come in a wide variety of different styles but they all have the same purpose and that is to keep young, unattended children away from a swimming pool. If they do make it near it, the alarm will alert you or other adults, immediately. As you can see, they are not just a pool accessory, but a lifesaving device.
Above Ground Pool Alarms
One type is a surface alarm, also called an above ground alarm. It is designed to sound when someone comes too close to the pool. Lots of these alarms come with a predetermined barrier. That barrier may only be a foot, but it may also be up to four. However, the problem with above ground alarms is that they can be easily setoff. Whether an animal enters the area or the wind blows debris past the alarm, your alarm will sound.
Gate alarms are the most popular of all pool alarms and the most effective. The alarm is positioned on the gate of your pool fence. Depending on the model you buy, the largest part of gate alarms will sound when someone passes through the gate unnoticed or if the gate door was left open. By properly using a pool gate alarm, your child will never even make it to the pool.
Alarms for In Ground Pools
In Ground pool alarms are similar to above ground alarms. They detect motion in the interior of the pool. You will be notified whenever something enters the water. So, if your child falls into the pool, your pool alarm will automatically sound.
Another popular alarm is the pool alarm wristband that is a wristband sensor worn by the child and sounds an alarm if the device is submerged. The wristband sensor sounds an alarm each time it is submerged in pool water and each time it is exposed to other water sources, such as that from a faucet or hose.
