How Pool Nets Work to Help Prevent Tragedy

A swimming pool net stretches tightly across the pool, above the water, and prevents unwanted access by infants, toddlers and young children.

The squares of the pool net are too small for a child’s head or body to fit through and are too large to allow them to jump or play on the pool net.

If a child accidentally falls or attempts to crawl onto the safety pool net, the child’s arms or legs go through the net squares. This prevents them from advancing further onto the net. The child will typically cry or make other sounds to indicate their distress and the adult guardian can then go to their aid. As with all safety barriers the net is only to be used as deterrent and the child should never be left alone near the pool.
