Is you pool drain unsafe?
Pool floor drains have enough suction to hold a person under the water. Entrapment injuries and deaths from drowning occur all too frequently in Florida, particularly in the summer months.
3 Ways to keep your pool safe:
- Install dual main drain openings rather than a single drain. Dual drains will not trap a child.
- Install an ‘Anti-Vortex’ drain cover. These can prevent entrapment due to their design.
- Install a Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) which shuts off the pump when a vacuum is sensed.
Frontline Property Inspections can check your pool drain cover for safety during the course of a residential home inspection and can make recommendations for updates, if needed.
Have a wonderful and safe summer in your pool!
