Summer heat means spending time out of doors and in our swimming pools. But to make sure that your little ones don’t attempt an unsupervised dip in the family pool, consider installing a Pool Guard - pool safety fence.
Pool Guard of Tampa Bay provides quality swimming pool safety fences that keep kids away from unsupervised pools. In their 15-year history, Pool Guard has installed more than 75,000 fences nationwide. Pool Guard of Tampa Bay has been serving the greater Tampa Bay area for over 5 years.
Why consider a Pool Guard fence? Accidents can happen very quickly, even when one or both parents are home. Each year, more than 300 children die nationwide as a result of accidental drowning, and thousands more are treated in emergency rooms. In Florida, drowning is the number one cause of death in children under 5. In response to these incidents, Florida enacted the Residential Pool Barrier Code in 2002. This statute requires that new pool owners either build a barrier around the pool, or install a home security system with an exit alarm on each door or window leading to the pool area. Most people building new swimming pools today choose to install removable pool safety fences with self closing pool gates to keep their families safe.
With a Pool Guard pool fence, you can rest assured that your children are protected by a quality product. “We only use top quality, American made products. That includes our premium interlocking mesh, the strongest mesh available on the market today.
Pool Guard of Tampa Bay provides a 48-hour turnaround between consultation and installation, and offers free estimates. On average, a removable pool fence can be installed in 2 hours, with prices starting around $400.
Pool Guard of Tampa Bay services all of Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties including: Westchase, Lutz, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel, Odessa, Brandon, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Seminole, Largo and Land O’ Lakes.
