In Texas, there are over 500,000 swimming pools, making drowning in a swimming pool a year-round concern for parents.
Swimming pool drownings are most common in younger children, especially kids under the age of 2. According to Texas DFPS, in Texas, in 2021 there were 77 fatal child drownings and it is estimated at least 8 times that number of non-fatal drownings. This is freighting for any parent or family member, especially if the accident could have been prevented by the homeowner or landlord.
A property with a swimming pool on the grounds is required to follow specific Texas laws to remove anything that can be dangerous, and clearly mark hazards.
