(ARA) - To ensure that all your summer memories are good ones, it’s vital to be aware of the potential dangers of home swimming pools and take the appropriate safety measures.
br />   
br /> By adding several layers of protection, homeowners can experience the pleasures of swimming pools and feel an added degree of assurance that their children, grandchildren and visitors will be safe.
br />
br /> Drowning is the second-leading cause of accidental death for children under five in the United States. Statistics from both the CDC and the CPSC show that hospital treatment for near-drowning is required for thousands of children each year.
br />
br /> “It happens everywhere, in ordinary neighborhoods, to caring, vigilant parents,” Marcia Kerr, a CPSC investigator, says. Kerr, who lost her own son in a pool drowning accident, says, “Homeowners should take steps immediately to ensure the safety of children who live in or visit their homes. Layers of protection are essential.”
br />
br /> Constant adult supervision is vital, but most parents realize it’s impossible to supervise children every second of every day. Isolation fencing and other barriers can give parents the time they need to realize their child is missing and to re-establish eye-to-eye contact.  
br />
br /> Isolation fencing separates the pool from the home, either surrounding the pool or enclosing all doors leading from the home, to protect children who get out the door from moving beyond the patio. Parents of toddlers should ensure “doggy doors” are locked or within fenced areas. For above-ground pools, a smaller fence and gate surrounding the steps or ladder can prevent toddler access.
br />
br /> Pool barrier codes require pool gates to be self-closing and self-latching, and to open away from the pool. The latch release may be required to be at 54 or 60 inches. Most codes require the latch to be key-lockable. D&D Technologies has designed the award-winning Magna-Latch magnetic gate latch and Tru-close self-closing gate hinges to meet pool barrier code requirements and improve the safety of any gate. Consult your building department for local regulations.
br />
br /> “The Magna-Latch is the number-one selling child safety gate latch in the world,” says D&D Technologies’ Senior Vice President Jim Paterson. “Unlike common gravity latches, Magna-Latch has a built-in key lock, eliminating the need for a separate padlock. It cannot jam, is self-latching and vertically & horizontally adjustable. It’s rust free and carries a limited lifetime warranty. With Tru-Close hinges, no external closing spring is required, and the homeowner can easily adjust the tension after installation with a screwdriver.”
br />
br /> The company’s products are available through fencing contractors, pool supply stores, select hardware and home improvement centers, and online.
br />
br /> According to extensive research studies worldwide, isolation fencing with properly functioning gates is the only barrier with proven effectiveness. Other measures are recommended for additional layers of protection.  
br />
br /> “We believe in promoting ‘The Safer 3,’ a program developed by the Swim for Life Foundation,” Paterson says. This means Safer Water -- including fencing and other safety devices around the pool; Safer Kids, including adult supervision and swim s
