Every time I sell a house with a pool I always caution the buyers about pool safety. As a real estate agent in Viera Florida I have found having a pool in your back yard may be a requirement for some.
But, having a pool in your backyard is a responsibility for all homeowners!
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has numerous publications available for consumers.
Another great reference for homeowners is the web site for the Pool Safety Council, a Washington DC based non-profit advocacy group dedicated to overall pool safety and, specifically the prevention of child drowning nationwide.
As a home owner with a pool, understand your responsibility, please.
