Health Tip: Keep Youngsters Outside the Pool

(HealthDay News) -- Toddlers are so curious that they're naturally drawn to an unattended pool. That's a recipe for tragedy.

The Poolsafety.gov website says pool owners should take these precautions to keep curious youngsters safe:

  • Install around any pool or spa a fence at least 4 feet high with self-latching gates.
  • Install a lockable safety cover over the pool.
  • Install door alarms and window guards on the back of the home if it serves as a wall to enclose the pool.
  • Equip the pool with gate and pool alarms that will let you know if a child goes near the pool.
  • Make sure pool drains are compliant, and that pool covers don't need repair.
  • Use an underwater alarm or surface wave for additional protection.
