Every time your child jumps in the water, do you worry about their safety? Of course, you do! That’s why you bought the water-wings, life preservers, and invested in swimming lessons. But, can you guarantee that there isn’t any electricity lurking dangerously in the water they’re about to jump into?
ShockAlarm can help keep you safe
Let me tell you about a man and his sons from Eastern Kentucky. He and his family are private folk and asked that they not be identified. He bought a ShockAlarm last year. After it arrived, they headed down to their boat dock. The boys were about to jump in when he said “Stop! Let me go get that thing I bought.” He came back from his truck with the ShockAlarm, took off the magnetic disk, tied on a rope, and set it in the water. It immediately alarmed. “I thought that there may be something wrong with it, so I reeled it in and it immediately silenced.” Not quite sure what was going on, he placed it back in the water and the ShockAlarm alerted again. He removed it from the water and called a local electrician. As it turns out, the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) was damaged and as a result, electricity was leaking into the water. All three of them could have perished.
You Can’t See Electricity in the Water
If there is electricity in the water, you can’t see it or smell it. You won’t know until it’s too late. It doesn’t take much to paralyze your muscles which would impair your breathing and ability to move away from the danger. That’s why we developed ShockAlarm. The first passive, constantly monitoring, self-contained water safety device that alerts (lights and/or siren) when electricity is detected in the water. It works in fresh water, salt water, and brackish water. You can use it in fiberglass pools, vinyl-lined pools, cement and gunite pools, and hot tubs.
