I writting this blog post today to provide information about pool safety. The summer is here and the pools are open. I was at a networking event, where they wore collecting money for donation for a child that had drowned in their swimmimg pool. It is too late to save this child but we can all help prevent this happening to another child. By following U.S. CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION on pool safety guidelines. When I am doing residential inspection and I see the house has a pool I talk to my client about pool safety. I send them two pdf files, one is from the U.S. CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION, the another is on pool alarms. We can all come together as real estate community to help promote pool safety. For more information about pool safety please visit the following web site, http://WWW.CPSC.GOV

I didn't know there's was a website regarding pool safety.  Thank you for the information.  Here in Houston, swimming pools are very popular.  And unfortunately it's sad when we hear about children drowning.  The saddest day in my life was attending a funeral for a 5 year old child that I used to babysit.
