[HOUSTON, 4/4/2018] - GreatFence.com is a reliable fence contractor that takes child safety seriously. In particular, it addresses the new safety requirement for swimming pools in California. The company designs durable and high-quality swimming pool barriers with child safety add-on to enhance pool security.
Swimming Pools Have a New Safety Requirement
In California, drowning is a major cause of death among children aged one to four. Data from the California Coalition for Children’s Safety and Health records that 160 young kids died from drowning and 700 others were sent to the hospital for near-fatal drowning between 2010 to 2015.
Since 1998, the state law only required pools and spas to have one safety measure in place like an alarm, cover, or fence. Acknowledging the inefficiency reflected in the child-drowning statistics, lawmakers passed a new law to keep children safe. Taking effect on January 1, 2018, all new swimming pools in the state are required to have a secondary safety feature.
Experts believe that this will lessen the number of pool accidents and drownings.
