Do you have your above ground swimming pool alarm? Now that you have a pool, the first thing to consider is pool safety. Please protect your loved ones around water. I have spent most of my life building above ground pools and feel they are the safest pool a person could have in their yard, but you can never do too much.
Please protect your children around water.
It currently sells for about $220.00. There don't seem to be a lot of customer reviews to go by but it might be a good choice.
The reviews indicate it is on the sensitive side and it will just keep going off if you are not home to shut it up. It may not be NYS code compliant so check that out if you are to be inspected.
If this is what your budget allows give it a try.
The unit above is the Pool Patrol PA-30 and sells for just under $200.00. It is a battery operated floating device. After many hours of reading customer reviews this alarm seems to be one of the most liked.
The negative reviews for this alarm are mostly about it being over sensitive, pretty much the same as all other alarm reviews. With this unit there are, however, many positive user experiences. I particularly loved this comment "It works just like it stated. We let our little girl hear the alarm. Now she wont go near the pool if its in there." That would have been any of my kids.
Please join us at Shadebuilder to help stop the drowning. If you have a story to tell that might alert another pool owner to the dangers in their yard please share it with us. The more lives we can save the better. If you haven't already, protect your kids with a pool alarm, or some other combination of safety features.
