North Miami, FL, October 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In response to the recent infant drowning incidents in Broward county, two South Florida-based businesses are teaming up to help raise awareness throughout the tri-county area about swimming pool safety. With the highest accidental drowning death rate in the U.S. for children aged 1 to 4, Florida homeowners are being strongly encouraged to ensure their pools are 100% childproof.
Water Warden Pool Safety Products, a Fort Lauderdale-based manufacturer of pool safety fences and nets, and ThePoolZone.com, a North Miami-based online retailer of pool products, have launched a joint effort aimed at providing South Florida pool owners with information, guidance and assistance in ensuring that their pools are properly secured.
Pool owners with questions about pool safety are encouraged to contact ThePoolZone.com via their website, phone or email and learn about securing their pool properly and affordably. Homeowners can receive:
A free pool safety assessment
Free pool safety literature
Free price quotes for safety fences and custom safety nets
Limited time discounts on safety nets
Families that cannot afford the cost of a safety fence or net will be able to request financial assistance or arrange payment plans.
“Any death is sad. A death of a child is tragic. The death of a child that could have been avoided is devastating, says Aaron Gewirtz of ThePoolZone.com. Many homeowners simply do not understand the risks involved in owning a pool. The unfortunate reality is that people usually think that it can’t happen to them – until it does.”
“Of course everyone wants to save money these days. But the cost of losing a child to drowning is far greater than the cost of a safety fence or net,” says Ari Green, the owner of Water Warden Pool Safety Products. “While there is no substitute for adult supervision, a safety fence or net adds another layer of protection. Any homeowner can install our affordable DIY safety products easily and securely.”
The Do-It-Yourself Safety Fences and Nets manufactured by Water Warden meet or exceed the safety requirements of the ASTM Standards F 1908-6 and F 1346-91.
