I've been seeing reports on the news, on the internet, and even on the Weather Channel about the dangers of kiddie pools that many people often end up overlooking and can have very tragic consequences. According to recent statistics, a child drowns every 5 days in a small backyard pool. Those are numbers we can easily get down with just a few simple precautions. This article on Yahoo has some great and easy tips and more information. In addition to some of the tips they've listed, you can also turn the small pools completely upside down to empty them and make sure that there's no water left in them at all.
