debated if i should post this but decided i needed to.
3 yr old twins drowned Friday in Galion Ohio at the next door neighbors house. My heart goes out to both the twins family and the pool owners. The pool was a AGP 16' by 48" deep. The twins had got away and were found in the pool. The girl was dead and the boy is in the hospital still. I have not seen any update for the boy.
The pool owner received 2 citations. code for Galion was a fence 5' high. There was no fence.
Also ridged PVC was used and they are speculating that is how the kids climbed in. Pool owner received citation for changing the pool plumbing to ridged PVC.
Pools are sold every day at Walmart and similar stores but they just sell them. It is the pool owner's responsibility to check these codes to install a pool.
