Open aero gardening is quickly becoming a popular alternative to standard backyard vegetable gardening. It’s easy, cheap and rewarding! But, before you get your heart set on an open-aero system for your pool, consider the safety precautions that are required with this type of gardening. A swimming pool with an open-air aeration system can present many challenges – so be prepared.
The open-air design of an open-aero swimming pool shutter poses two major challenges – privacy and noise. Both of these issues can be alleviated by simply choosing the right shutter design for your swimming pool. In the meantime, we will take a look at the other side of this important gardening component. After reading this article you should have a better idea of what swimming pool security is all about and why it is so important.
First, a swimming pool with an open-aero system poses an obvious security risk. When an “open air” aeration system is in use – meaning there is no obstruction to the flow of outside air into the pool – an outside source can easily reach the pool and cause a safety concern. This is the main reason that open-air systems are typically installed inside the house, in the garage, or below the deck. It is important to make sure that this cannot happen. This can be accomplished with a simple fence and some landscaping. In addition, if you have a swimming pool with an open-air system, it is recommended you install fencing that extends several feet above the area of the pool itself.
