    Life ring?

    Any forum members have a life ring for their pool just in case somebody gets into trouble?

    A life ring looks great, but isn't a good tool to use when people are having problems in a swimming pool. A life ring is designed to be thrown near someone who is conscious and oriented so they can swim over to it and have something to hold onto until help comes. If they are able to swim over to the life ring, they will be able to swim over to the wall of the pool, and won't need a life ring.

    Reach.....Throw.......GO! is the checklist for lifesaving procedures. I keep a shepherds crook on my aluminum pool pole any time anyone is in the pool.
