Poorly Maintained Pools Can Kill
We’re approaching the time of year that families come together and grandkids are running around their grandparents back yards. This is traditionally when Aussies wind down and get to enjoy all the great things that go along with living in such a wonderful place, unfortunately it is also the time of year that kids get hurt. Between December first and December 23rd last year there were three serious incidents of children nearly drowning in backyard swimming pools.
Don’t wait for something to go wrong
The culprits in cases like these are almost invariably poorly maintained or below standard swimming pools or fencing. It’s not only dangerous, it’s also illegal and could find a homeowner being held criminally liable for any injuries that occur. Just ask Philip Cameron from Armidale who was actually charged with manslaughter in 2012 after a toddler strayed into his yard and ended up drowning to death in his poorly maintained pool.
The effects of not properly maintaining your pool can be huge and very long ranging. You are at risk of fines from council, someone getting seriously hurt and even a reduced property value. If you’ve got a dilapidated pool in your yard we’d love to give you a free, no-obligation quote to remove it. If you have a current seniors card we’ll even give you 10% off the price!
