If the article by Kelly Burke Daily Telegraph is the tip of the iceberg, the number of tragedies in outdoor pools continues this Summer despite all the warnings and information available. Some Councils like Blacktown, Sydney have five officers and inspected 18,000 pools last year, nearby Liverpool only 160 pools. How many with faults? Up to 98%, so check for faulty gates and locks and any methods toddlers can use to satisfy curiosity but with so often severe consequences.
