Fencing Is a Critical Safety Feature
Backyard swimming pools are what is referred to as an attractive nuisance. Children see pools and they want to swim. For that reason, property owners should take measures to prevent neighborhood children from accessing the pool. The easiest way to do this is to install fencing around the backyard or around the pool itself.
Briggs Winston If a property owner fails to take the necessary measures to keep children away from the attractive nuisance, the result could be a drowning accident, a slip-and-fall accident or a diving accident that results in spinal cord injuries or other catastrophic injuries.
