Re: The Pool Laws and Their Grey Areas

Yes, I have been in the process of calculating thelikely weight!!!

Our pool is 10 x 4 metres, so I envisaged 5 2x4 (obviously a little bigger to go over the edge) panels, but I had been thinking they't be heavy old things!

Re: The Pool Laws and Their Grey Areas

Although I have meet someone who has an approved alarm, and a removable 9v electric fence, which he says is "to keep animals out"!!!!

Re: The Pool Laws and Their Grey Areas

I leave the lawyers to argue the case but fitting one of the approved devices and providing it is working you are complying. If you are out shopping etc and someone goes in that's their issue, you have complied. To say you must be there is ridiculous because it doesn't say that and that is almost saying you must have a life guard within earshot of the alarm permanently.

You do not in the case of an alarm have to respond within 14 seconds, The alarm must respond to an immersion within 14 seconds.
The government had the opportunity to look at devices properly before passing the decree after all they had AFNOR test each one and they decided it was ok.

Thank you Theiere, that's how I read it. If it's sensible or not, that's how it reads to me!

So I take it the French government are going to put fences and alarms around all the open lakes etc that the public can access, plus of course the Med!

A country which has a law that rules that when travelling at 50kph on a main road you have to give way to traffic driving straight into your path from your right is capable of  just about anything Smile [:)]

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
