Backyard pools and spas are the most common site for drowning of small children, but a recent Washington state code requires homes with pools and spas to have proper barriers for children. Beginning July of last year, all new private pools and spas in Washington must have barriers. The regulation applies only to new pools and spas, but these safer standards are recommended for older pools and spas as well.
