September is upon us, which means that pool season is slowly coming to a close. Kids are back in school and extra curricular activities are picking up, and the weather will start cooling off soon as fall approaches. This means that less time will be spent playing in the backyard pool, as the pool itself may become too cool to comfortably swim in as the temperatures begin to drop. However, one of the great things about Arizona is that the backyard will still be a perfect place to spend time outside throughout the year, even if the pool gets less use. This also means that pool safety and security should be on our minds year around – not just when pool season is at its peak during the summer.
Before officially ending pool season at your home, make sure that your pool gate and fence is up to code and functioning well. It’s important to make sure that all gates that lead to the pool area close properly by latching completely, as well as making sure that the latch is out of reach of any child. Of course, nothing is a substitute for supervision, but a pool fence that is up to code, durable, and well-crafted is not only the law, it provides another layer of safety that could save a child’s life. The experts at DCS Pool Barriers are able to custom design and install a pool safety fence and gate on any terrain in order to provide your home with the security you need. Close out the pool season this year by making sure that your pool fence and gate are fully functioning and repaired, or even by updating it entirely. Call now to get a free estimate: 623-825-7700.
