Secure the Perimeter
A law in most states, it is imperative that you have a gate-latching fence around your entire swimming pool and/or spa. The suggested minimum height is four feet. The locking mechanism must be self-locking/latching.
When your swimming pool is not in use, it is recommended that you keep it covered. Be sure to remove all ladders or or steps beforehand. A water or sensor alarm is also suggested.
