Toddler scales and opens Pool Fence Video

Toddler opens pool gate video goes viral......


Definition "In engineering, redundancy is the duplication of critical components or functions of a system with the intention of increasing reliability of the system, usually in the form of a backup or fail-safe." Quote


Why aren't regulating authorities mandating  double safety measures?


Pool owners please consider installing Additional/secondary locks

Another point to consider is making sure the gate opens outwards and not in to the pool area......making the process of entering the pool more difficult.

Frightening for any parent. As a mum of two I am always nervous of visiting the homes of friends who have pools, for this very reason.
