Frank Verni, owner/operator

Frank Verni, Owner/Operator of Life Saver Pool Safety is a factory trained and authorized dealer-installer for Life Saver Pool Fence, serving the Triangle region of North Carolina.

Frank Verni, owner of Life Saver Pool Safety Fence and Solutions explains, "I became an authorized dealer/distributor after purchasing a Life Saver Pool Fence to protect my own children when they were babies and toddlers. We had done a lot of research about different fence options and chose Life Saver because it is unable to be climbed, still keeps your pool and yard looking nice, and is affordable. As a bonus? It was not only safer for my kids, but it also prevented my water-loving Labrador retriever from using every excuse to jump into the pool! I ended up being so impressed by the product that I became a distributor."
