And you know this, how? My emphasis is on safety, the money is secondary.

I have a 5 ft mesh fence that I can see through with a self closing/latching gate. The lock is kept locked at all times and the key is kept in a kitchen cupboard that has a magnetic lock, locked at all times. My pool is 52" above ground, the ladder is kept up at all times when not in use and there is also a lock to prevent it from being lowered without an adult. All pool chemicals are kept in a locked shed.

I am licensed and the pool was carefully inspected. My inspector was especially critical because our county suffered the loss of a toddler that drowned in an ice chest a few years ago.
