I also searching relevant information on alarms i bought Polygroup summer waves elite pool and for their relevant info sometimes follow tips.
Pool safety is principal a concern for many pool owners as it could be the difference among life and demise. reviews have proven that the number one purpose of death for kids under the age of 5 is unintended drowning. One manner to make sure pool safety is to feature a pool alarm system on your swimming pool. Pool alarm systems alert pool owners whilst there is an unexpected breach or intrusion of the swimming pool water.

Call your local building official and ask what codes they are enforcing in your area, with regard to your question. There are too many items on the market, some of which may not comply with your local codes. The local building dept. can point you in the right direction. After you get that info, you can post back here with questions, if you wish.

The pool industry and the Consumer Product Safety Commission will continually tell everybody that the ONLY safe pool to have children around is where there is a responsible adult watching the children at all times. Otherwise, have a 4 foot approved "barrier" around the pool with the childen on the outside of it, or an installed pool cover that complies with ASTM F 1346.
Relying on some type of "device" that might beep or honk when the child goes into a pool is foolish. You are going to feel bad if something happens to your child becuase you were not there watching. Read the statistics - they are staggering. And most injuries and deaths attributable to pools are children.
There are also mesh fence products avaiable that can be erected right around the pool that can be taken down quickly when you have an event (party) and they have a gate that an dult can go through for a quick dip. Yes, I know. "It's so beautiful to look out the window and see your pool it all its splendor". But your heart is skipping a beat for a REASON. It IS dangerous if not attended by a responsible adult, 100% of the time that children are around the pool. No going inside for a second to answer the phone, flip the laundray, go to the bathroom, etc. Accidents around pools happen in a matter of seconds. Again, read the statistics.
There have been locally enforced residential pool regulations for years. The latest culmination of all that intelligence is the 2012 International Pool and Spa Code. That code requires that if your house wall serves as the barrier, you need to have alarms on the doors and windows on the wall that has the pool on the other side. Do you have alarms on those doors and windows?
The safety industry (of which code officials are a part of) recognize that pools are child MAGNETS. Anything floating in a pool (a water toy that was not removed) is just that much extra attraction for a child to go after.
I am all for pools - they are GREAT FUN and relaxing. So are automobiles. BOTH require safe practices for use to avoid death and injury. MAKE A PACT with someone that you will not leave the pool area (or go to sleep at the pool area) at anytime while your children are in the area. Get alarms on your house windows and doors that serve as part of the barrier for the pool. Get a mesh barrier to erect around the pool while you are not using it and be faithful about erecting it. If you have a significant other or parents,have them read this and see if it makes sense to them. Go to the CPSC website and search under pools. READ THE STATISTICS and their advice.
If you do what is recommended, your heart will rest knowing you did the right thing for ALL children that come to your house and pool.

I'm looking for any relevant information on pool alarms. I have two very energetic boys that just love to play around the pool, and every time they come near it, my heart just skipps a beat. So, if anyone here uses a pool alarm, I would be very happy to hear anything about it, especially, what should I look for when I'm buying this alarm.
I've also read on various forums about this safety turtle, how good it is, and I would like to ask just how reliable it is.
Thank you in advance.
