Safety Turtle Now on Facebook

Safet Turtle wrist alarm mfg. by Terrapin Communications, Inc.Safety Turtle®, manufactured by Terrapin Communications, Inc., is a family of Wireless Alert products designed to enhance security around water, especially swimming pools. To increase awareness about water safety for children, Safety Turtle has launched a social media campaign. You can now visit them on facebook to stay up to date on news from the company and information about water safety.


Originally introduced in 1998 as a “last layer of protection” for young children near swimming pools and other bodies of water, the Safety Turtle personal immersion alarm has been adapted for pets, patients doing water physiotherapy, workers near water hazards, and to automatically alert lifeguard rescues. The Safety Turtle wireless gate/door alarm models introduced in 2006 allow homeowners to remotely monitor pool and property fences and door accesses.

Here’s how a Safety Turtle Wireless Alert system works: It consists of one or more Base Station receivers and an unlimited number of radio sensors. The sensors may be of different types--immersion, gate, panic button--but must be the same color to work with the same Base Station. Any sensor type can initiate alarming at the Base Station.

Pool & Spa Living Announces Name Change for 2011

As the leading consumer magazine in the pool, spa, and outdoor industry, we're changing our name from Pool & Spa Living to Pool & Spa Outdoor Design to encompass the entire world of outdoor living and design.


America is changing, and we're changing with it. America is moving their living space outdoors. They're creating outdoor living rooms, outdoor kitchens, outdoor entertainment centers, outdoor everything!


And they're looking for design ideas for patios and decks, outdoor kitchens, outdoor furniture and lighting, and most importantly, ideas for integrating a pool or spa into their new outdoor landscape.


As the leading consumer magazine for pool & spa ideas, Pool & Spa Living has been covering the outdoors for 15 years. And now, in 2011, we're expanding our editorial to cover the entire world of outdoor living and design for your backyard.

It's such a big deal, we're changing our name from Pool & Spa Living to Pool & Spa Outdoor Design. Because the way we look at it, this is more than a trend--it's a movement.


From September 2010 through February 2011, we will be making the transition in print and updating our website to integrate to new name. By March 2011, we will be changing our website URL to www.PoolSpaOutdoor.com. The name change will take full effect in March 2011 when the spring issue of Pool & Spa Outdoor Design hits newsstands.
