Dont have kids but I would love a pool.The monitors are also good if the family pet or a squirrel falls in.As for kids they are clever little buggers never give them the benefit of the dought.
Can they go in the yard where the pool is? If not Ive seen Nursing Homes that have a bracelet to go on patients in case they open a door to go outside and make a run for it, it sounds an alarm.

I don't have any advice for you GB, there is no way we would have a pool with only 2 months where it is warm enough to swim outside. LOL. I think you have the right idea though, better to be too careful than not careful enough.

When I lived in LV we had an inground pool - fortunately our pool was on one side of the yard so we just fenced across that side of the yard with a wrought iron fence with a self lock. Now I live in Chicago and have an above ground pool with a deck built around it and a self locking gate at the top of the steps. The fence you are looking at looks very cool. I agree, no price is too large to protect the kids! Also, you may want to put a lock on any gates you have on your fence around the yard.

Yeah we have a pad lock on the fence around the yard. I think that is a state law in MA when you have a pool.
