Swimming pools pose a serious danger for younger children, elderly, and pets if there are not appropriate pool safety measures in place. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the leading cause of death for children aged one to four. On average, 390 children drown each year. Even if the drowning is nonfatal, there are serious risks associated with this including severe brain damage which can result in long-term disabilities such as memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functions.
