Are you the owner of a swimming pool? Do you have questions about the safety of your pool?
The possible measures
There are 4 ways to secure your pool :
1) Security barriers/ NF P90-306 :
These should be more than 1m 10cm high and should have a double locked door to stop them being opened by a young child. Furthermore, this barrier should be placed at least a meter back from the edge of the pool to allow access in case of an accident.
2) An alarm/ NF P90-307 :
Most owners choose this because of its price (cheaper in comparison to the others) which ranges from 50 to 800 euros depending on the type and its functions.
3) Secure covers / NF P90-308 :
There are different types of covers in different materials but in all cases the cover should be designed, built or installed in a way that stops involuntary immersion of children of less than 5 years old, resistant to an adult (of 100 kilos) once closed and must not cause injury.
4) Shelters / NF P90-309 :
Just like covers, they should be resistant and responsive to certain requirements : it should lock and be secure once closed, resistant to strong winds, strong snowfall with impossible access for children under 5 and with no sharp edges…
