My parents have a pool and my flats have a water feature in the communal garden. DS is walking and I am starting to think about water safety. I don't know whether to get an alarm (which may also be useful for holidays etc) or whether it does more harm than good by lulling you into a false sense of security. Obviously he will never be around either unsupervised. The pool has a lock, the water feature doesn't. The water feature is probably more dangerous but a wrist alarm may not be in the water while his head might be..... any thoughts, or recommendations for particular alarms?

I recently purchased a dolphin aquasonic pool alarm. www.dolphinalarms.com

My DS loves water and I am always worried when having friends over and even when others are swimming as he could go unnoticed in the pool- everyone assuming someone else is keeping an eye.

It was the only alarm I found which could be used even when people are swimming in the pool.

Hope this helps.
