The Facts About Swimming Pools

Drowning is the leading cause of injury death among children aged 1–4 years

(source )

From 2005-2009, 683 unintentional drownings per year on average in swimming pools.

You really don't NEED to have a swimming pool. You want one and you may feel like you have the right to have one, but you don't NEED one.

More children die every year in swimming pools than die by gun violence. This is simply unacceptable.

A swimming pool is an accident waiting to happen.

We need sensible laws and restrictions on swimming pools.
- required pool safety classes
- pool covers and locks in place while not in use
- jail time if you are caught with an unattended pool with no pool cover and lock
- jail time if someone drowns in your pool
- pool construction companies should be held liable if a pool they build results in a death of a child
- restrictions on the maximum depth of a pool. Does anyone really need a pool that is 8 feet deep? We propose a limit to the depth of pools to a maximum of 4 feet. After a year of the passage of the law, all pools over 4 feet in depth will be illegal and no further pools can be built that are deeper.
- No swimming pools can be built within 1000 feet from a school.
- Pools will be registered with the federal government.
- If you are going to build a new pool, you will need to attend the pool safety classes.
- If you are a user of drugs or declared mentally incompetant, you will not be allowed to have a pool in your house.
- It will be a crime if a child gains access to your pool and it is unattended and without pool safety covers with locks

We are not calling for banning pools altogether, just establishing some sensible laws that will save lives.

If we can save just ONE LIFE it will be worth it.
