If you are fortunate enough to have a swimming pool in your backyard then one thing you must be aware of is the need for safety at all times. One way you can improve this is to install a child safety pool fence. This fence which runs around the whole perimeter of the pool will stop your children from entering the pool without your knowledge. Whether they think they can swim or not you should never let your children play in a swimming pool unsupervised.

One thing a child safety pool fence will have is a gate that also has a child safety lock on. This is usually a dimple high up on top of the gate which you pull up to release the gate mechanism. This prevents small children from being able to reach it and opening the gate themselves.

Many places in the world have strict regulations on having a child safety pool fence installed. In fact, in Australia it is the law to have one fitted around every single pool, this is whether you have children or not. This is due to the amount of wildlife that could be harmed by falling into an unprotected pool also.

The cost of installing one of these safety fences is miniscule considering it could save lives. As a parent it is your responsibility to protect your children as much as you possibly can. You can't watch over them every second of the day but you can put safety measure in place to ensure that when you are not watching them that they cannot do anything to harm themselves. Planning ahead and avoiding any accidents is always better than thinking about what you should have done if one occurs. Prevention is always better than the cure.
