Ever heard of an “attractive nuisance”? Kind of an oxymoron…but you are looking at what some court cases involving pools call and “attractive nuisance.” It attracts children by having that “wow” factor.

Thus keeping you out of a lawsuit and the courtroom. If you have a pool or are thinking of getting one, check with your insurance company to see which underwriting guidelines are there to help you stay safe.
