In Central Florida, pools outnumber alligators. When I fly back home to Orlando after a trip out of town, I’m struck by the number of pools dotting the landscape below as the plane descends over the city. So many pools, so many safety hazards.
Pools and Liability
Owning a pool is one of the most significant liabilities you’ll take on in your lifetime. If you have children, teaching them water safety at an early age is essential, both to protect them when they’re near your pool and to keep them safe when they’re near other pools. Knowing how the law relates to pools and liability is my job, but this issue strikes a personal chord as well.
