POOL SAFETY ALARMs - What are the In Pool Options?

Vigilance is the best way to prevent a child from drowning. Nearly all
pool mishaps happen in less than five minutes; the amount of time it
takes to make a cup of coffee or a sandwich.

There are alarms that can help you promote pool safety. Pool safety
alarms afford you extra protection for the ones you care about and love.
They will help keep your children from becoming a statistic.
Pool Alarms come in 2 styles: Floating and Infra red Sensors

1.    FLOATING/WAVE SENSORS
These alarms are mounted on the edge of the pool or in the pool. They are
key activated, battery powered, and portable. Generally these alarms
sense water displacement when an object weighing more than fifteen pounds
enters the pool. When this occurs a signal is sent to a remote receiver
which is either in the home or carried by the gardian. The receiver emits
an alarm of approximately 85 decibels. This type of alarm can be used
with pool covers, pool nets or solar blankets and have an adjustment that
can reduce their sensitivity. They are affordable. The disadvantages to
this system in some models include the portability, which means some can
be removed for swimming and not replaced, and the fact that someone must
be in the water before you are alerted. More details are at

2.    FENCE/ WALL MOUNTED PASSIVE INFRA-RED MOTION DETECTORS
These all weather-designed systems may be mounted on a pool fence or wall
and can also be installed in a spa, patio, or garage. They protect an 8-
yard semi circular area by emitting a 110-decibel alarm that can be heard
up to 50 yards away. These alarms, which are most effective when mounted
on a pool fence or wall, are armed one minute after being switched on and
possess a 5 second entry delay feature which prevents the device from
going off immediately after it’s been activated. Unique features include
both a movement and heat sensitive sensor that can only be activated by a
small child or animal when performing movements and emitting body heat
within its patrol range. 2 standard alkaline batteries or a DC power
adapter run these alarms, which have a 12-month full replacement
warranty.

POOL MOUNTED PASSIVE INFRA-RED MOTION DETECTORS
These alarms, which are some of the newest ones on the market, combine
all of the important features found in other devices and are very
affordable. Each unit, simultaneously detects both motion and heat of
anyone passing by and will not give any false readings for inanimate
objects. With this device a perimeter fence is not an integral part of
the system as it is with most other systems.
This key operated unit runs on batteries or a DC power adapter and has a
24-hour warning signal for low battery power. With a 110-decibel micro
siren this is also the loudest alarm on the market and can be heard 50-
yards away. These alarms cover an 8.5-yard radius and a 150-degree area.
The Pool Mounted Passive Infra Red Motion Detector protects all children
before they get wet and also keeps your pool equipment safe from theft.

Pool Safety Alarms—Things to Think About
In considering a pool safety alarm one should compare features, price,
and reliability. Consider the power source or sources, the fail-safes,
and the potential for inadvertently disarming the warning system.
Remember that pool alarms are one tool that will help to make your
swimming area safer. Parental guidance and vigilance are primary in
insuring pool safety.
This is an investment in your family’s future. Losing a child is
devastating and most couples who do so end up in divorce. Statistics are
cold hard facts; the hug of your child is a tender, heart-warming
reality. Keep your little ones safe and protected.
