Arizona Firm Attempts World's Fastest and Safest Pool Build on August 1, 2007. We Fix Ugly Pools Founder Proves National Effort to Reduce Child Drowning Isn't Just About Awareness.

PR9.NET August 07, 2007 - Phoenix, Arizona - Leading the way, We Fix Ugly Pools Sets the World Record for the Fastest and Safest Pool Ever.

August 1st, 2007, 6 AM the build begins. Brian Morris and his team will attempt to set the World Record and the standard for the fastest, quality pool build on the planet (live video feed at www.worldrecordpoolbuild.com). Over 200 people will be involved. Governments have been warned and included, permits have been granted, and the media has been alerted, but Brian Morris still has one thing on his mind.
"I've been building pools for so many years, for so many people, I almost got lost in the hole in the ground I was digging for a Return on Investment as a business owner" stated Brian Morris, CEO of We Fix Ugly Pools (www.wefixuglypools.com), "I guess I'm growing soft, but when we deliver a pool to each family, I can't imagine one of their children drowning as an oversight. Nothing could make my skin crawl more."

We Fix Ugly Pools recognizes August as Drowning Awareness Month and will build a pool in less than 1 day showcasing a proper way to build a safe pool. The world record pool build will also have SAFE play areas in the back yard for kids. There will be a cover on the pool that will serve as a secondary barrier to the pool fence. WFUP will be attending other events to recognize pool safety.

"The funny thing about Brian is that he doesn't have any kids, but when he's planning pools everyone's kids are his, and they're safety takes priority," said HOMEOWNER, "Brian doesn't lose a beat when it comes to design, but the coolest thing, other than the water, is that we know our kids are safe."

We Fix Ugly Pools reminds you to keep close supervision of young children around pools. Children are drawn to water, not knowing the terrible danger pools can pose. Also, just because children know how to swim, doesn't mean they are drown-proof. All children should be supervised every second while in and around the pool.

Additional tips to prevent drowning:

• Fences and walls should be at least 4 feet high and installed completely around the pool. Fence gates should be self-closing and self- latching. The latch should be out of a small child's reach. Keep furniture that could be used for climbing into the pool area away from fences.
• If your house forms one side of the barrier to the pool, then doors leading from the house to the pool should be protected with alarms that produce a sound when a door is unexpectedly opened.
• A power safety cover -- a motor-powered barrier that can be placed over the water area -- can be used when the pool is not in use.
• Keep rescue equipment by the pool and be sure a phone is poolside with emergency numbers posted. Knowing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can be a lifesaver.
• Don't leave pool toys and floats in the pool or pool area that may attract young children to the water.
• For above-ground pools, steps and ladders to the pool should be secured and locked, or removed when the pool is not in use.
• If a child is missing, always look in the pool first. Seconds count in preventing death or disability.
• Pool alarms can be used as an added precaution. Look for alarms that meet the requirements of the ASTM standard. The commission advises that consumers use remote alarm receivers so the alarm can be heard inside the house or in other places away from the pool area.
• To prevent body entrapment and hair entrapment/entanglement, have a qualified pool professional inspect the drain suction fittings and covers on your pool and spa to be sure that they are the proper size, properly attached, and meet current safety standards. If your pool or spa has a single drain outlet, consider installing a safety vacuum release system that breaks the vacuum to avoid potential entrapment conditions.
We are honored to invite you to participate in the event to add to the aesthetic and safety aspect of backyard construction that is so important during a new construction or renovation. While our focus appears to be on speed, we are dedicated to the quality and the safety of our finished product as well. The homeowner has small children which will be our focus of concern throughout the construction.
