Pool Drains – Hidden Dangers

Posted on in Uncategorized
By Robert Geimer

With summer just around the corner, it is time to remember that some pool drains pose a very serious hazard to swimmers, especially children. In 2007, Abbey Taylor, an adorable six year old girl, died from injuries sustained when she encountered a dangerous drain in a wading pool. In her memory, Abbey’s Hope was established to warn other families about the dangers of pool drains: www.abbeyshope.org

Obviously we need to keep an eye on our children when they swim; but we also need to be aware of dangerous pool drains that can create powerful suction that can trap a child under water. Please visit www.abbeyshope.org to see examples of dangerous and safe pool drains, and have a wonderful and safe summer!
