November 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #63: Hot Tubs and Spas Should Be Fenced In As Well

Tip of the Week

A pool fence should also enclose the area around a hot tub or outdoor spa area.
You can either set up your swimming pool fence around the perimeter of your hot tub or erect a different fence all together to protect children from accidentally stumbling into a hot tub or spa.
Remember that it only takes a few inches of water for a child to drown. Do not believe that because the structure is not a large swimming pool, the danger is diminished in any way.
