Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/04/2017 -- Now that summer is just around the corner it's time to start thinking about all the exciting outdoors activities. For anyone with a swimming pool, it's time to start preparing the backyard for days and evenings enjoying being outside and poolside with family and friends.
The looming question, though— what to do for pool safety when the durable, heavy cover is removed after winter? With the accidental drowning rate so much higher in the summer time and children drawn to the inviting cool pool water, it's important to address preventative plans. Many options are inconvenient, prohibitively expensive, or unsafe. Local pool safety company Katchakid helps to solve this problem with its popular pool safety net, available throughout New York and New Jersey.
How the pool safety net works:
The pool safety net is custom-made to fit each pool, making it available to everyone, even those with unique shaped pools and design features. Like a large tennis racket, the strong and durable net is stretched over the pool and secured to deck anchors. The net cover can even utilize and fasten to most pre-existing winter cover anchors mounted into the edges of the pool. This means the transition from the winter pool cover to summer net is seamless.
The net is UV protected and isn't affected by most pool chemicals, so it's a great investment that will withstand the outdoors throughout the hot, sunny days.
Unlike the heavy solid winter cover, this net cover is extremely lightweight and easy to remove. Don't let it fool you though – it's just as reliable and secure. When you want to use the pool, all you have to do is release the tension, reel the net back up - and the pool is open and ready to go. The net is so designed for one person to remove & replace making it ideal for daily use.
Is the safety net truly as effective as a winter pool cover? Yes. Here's how:
The pool net serves as a barrier between the child and the water. As long as the net is in good condition, properly positioned and tensioned, the net will support the weight of a young child near the pool's edge. At the perimeter edge of the cover, a crawler is typically suspended above the water, and their movement is slowed by the large mesh squares of the netting material. The material's unique mesh size has a dual action: small enough to prevent a baby's head from penetrating the net while simultaneously large enough to discourage an older child's movement.
Just to mention a few of the recognitions the pool safety net has received:
A proven safety track record, helping to keep families safe from the dangers of an unsecured pool.
ASTM F1346-91 Compliant
Endorsed by the American Lifeguard Association
Whether you've always left your pool open during the summer, or you're looking for a new alternative to replace the heavy cover you're currently using, a pool safety net has proven to be a great investment to be included in any pool owner's summer plans. Katchakid customer's report that the convenience of not having to lift a large, heavy cover—paired with the peace of mind knowing the pool is so secured — makes their net cover well worth the investment.
How does the net benefit customers?
The safety net benefits a variety of people, regardless of how or when the pool is used.
Pool owners can enjoy the reflected sunshine and sparkle from the water during the day, with the assurance that once the pools safety net is in use, the pool has one of best forms of pool protection assisting to reduce the drowning risk of small children.
"For years, we had a pool in the backyard, that we just left uncovered all summer long. Then we realized the danger and uncertainty that worried us all summer, not knowing who could climb into the pool even when we're not home. The net adds a level of protection and security for us, and it's great knowing everyone is safe." –Kiara Nelson, New Jersey
The net does not replace heavy-duty coverings for winterizing pools during the snowy months, but it is an excellent way to barrier pools during warmer seasons. It's a win-win for pool owners throughout New York and New Jersey.
