Concerning pool alarms....
 
I want to buy a pool alarm and I could use some help regarding this Safety Turtle. Is it considered safe and reliable? Have you tried it and what's the verdict? :)

Thanks for all the help

Ask the maker how long the battery in the wristband device lasts and how far its signal goes in a large pool. Also, is there any way for the thing to be fooled into not responding correctly?

And, post links to the tech specs for other candidates.

Evidently these things have been around for a while.

Try to get one that is covered by a newer patent.
