One of the many responsibilities that comes with owning a pool or spa, is taking adequate steps to ensure that children are kept away from the water in the absence of adult supervision. State and local governments generally have specific legal requirements concerning the placement of barriers around pools and spas. In addition to fences, walls, or natural barriers, many cities require that self-closing gates or doors be installed in any entrance leading to your pool or spa. Self-closing gates can help prevent accidents, provide security, and give you peace of mind. Most come with a self-latching mechanism to ensure that the gate is always properly fastened. This discourages unauthorized use of your pool or spa, and aids in keeping children out of harm's way. However, a self-closing gate is only one of many precautionary measures that should be considered. For the best results, it's a good idea to work with your builder to establish multiple layers of protection, and you should keep in mind that there's no substitute for adequate supervision. For more information, contact a pool or spa dealer in your area.
