Hi, new here. I really want to get a pool but my DH and I are so worried about safety. We live in a neighborhood that has many small children (probably close to 100 under age 10). Our worry is that even if we fence the yard (expensive), a child might still enter the yard, and get into the pool. The city doesn't have any fence regulation for AGP as long as the wall height is 48 inches. I know we could put a "fence thing" around the top of the pool but we still worry a child could get in and drown.
We'd love an inground but the cost is too much.
My question is, do safety issues ever worry you? Did safety drive your decision to have an AGP?
We are at work all day so we can't keep an eye on the pool during the day. All the alarms in the world won't stop a wondering child from drowning if they got over the fence.
No pool yet. Would like an 18X33 but Hardcover restrictions might drop that to 15X30.
