Buyer Beware!

 

The Katchakid pool safety net system was introduced to the USA 10 years ago. If it doesn't’t say Katchakid then it is not the original pool safety net. Only our pool nets are qualified to claim over 30 years of helping to keep kids safe. You can trust the experience of an innovator, beware of imitators.

Katchakid® – a name you can trust.

Drowning - The Tragic Reality

 

  • Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of injury death in the USA in young persons under 15.
  • In 18 of the 50 states, drowning was the number one cause of unintentional injury death of children 1 to 4 years of age.
  • 67% of all drownings occur in backyard spas, pools and bathtubs.
  • The majority of drowning incidents have occurred while the child's supervisor assumed the child was safely indoors.
  • A child can drown in less time than it takes to answer the telephone.
  • A child can drown in as little as 5-8cm of water in as little as 30 seconds.
  • Children less than 5 years of age and young people aged 15 to 24 years have the highest drowning rates.
  • For every child who drowns, four children are hospitalized for near-drowning.
  • One third of those removed from water after a near-drowning are comatose on admission, survive but suffer significant neurological impairment. Irreversible brain damage may occur after 3-5 minutes.
  • The annual cost of care per year in a chronic care facility for an impaired survivor of a near-drowning event is approximately
    $100 000.
