Pool Alarms


Due to the incidence of drownings in residential backyard swimming pools, many municipalities, including New York State, have enacted a law mandating that all new pools must be equipped with some standard safety equipment.

The requirements for a pool alarm that meets the state standards are as follows:

  • Capable of detecting a person entering the water at any point on the surface of the pool and giving an audible alarm
  • Provides detection capability at every point on the surface of a swimming pool
  • Audible poolside and at another location on the premises where the swimming pool is located
  • May not be an alarm device which is located on a person, or which is dependent on a device located on a person for its proper operation
  • Meets ASTM F2208

PRO TECH POOLS recommends the Pool Guard Alarm for you and your family’s safety. A leader in the industry, the Pool Guard Alarm was one of the first to be compliant with the requirements in New York State, and continues to be the most frequently requested.

If you have had a pool prior to 2006, law does not mandate that you alarm your pool, however, PRO TECH POOLS recommends the compliance of all laws relating to the safety of your family and friends.
