Please forgive me if this topic has been addressed - I searched but couldn't find more than the usual information. I found this website a couple of weeks ago and have been lurking trying to learn all I can. Y'all really know your stuff!
My husband and I have 4 young children: almost 6 yo, 4 yo, 2 yo, and 5 month old. We really want to get a pool but our main concern is the safety of our children. Obviously, they would not be allowed in the backyard without supervision. We have a 6-ft privacy fence with a lock and we have an alarm system that chimes when an exterior door is opened. If we get a pool, I plan on getting an alarm that sounds when the water surface is broken. I just wondered if any of you have additional advice/information about keeping young children safe with a pool in your backyard. Am I worrying too much or should we just be patient and wait to get a pool until our children are older?
