Before using the SEAL SwimSafeTM, we strongly recommend testing to ensure you’re using the system properly.
To accurately test the SEAL SwimSafeTM, you must use an in-ground pool. The Band will NOT alarm in a bucket of water or a hot tub as the Band is designed to ignore small bodies of water, minor submersion and splashing
- Turn the System on and ensure you are able to cycle the Bands through the swim levels (GREEN, BLUE, PURPLE and ORANGE).
- Set Band to swim level GREEN. Dip the GREEN Band in the water. Fully submerse the Band and move it back and forth in the water like a swimmer struggling. The Hub and Band will alarm after a couple of seconds.
- Set Band to swim level BLUE or PURPLE. Completely submerge the BLUE or PURPLE Band in at least 3 feet of water. The sensors are designed to function around a swimmer’s neck and if the Band is not worn by a person it will need to be much deeper in water to alarm than when worn by a swimmer.
NOTE: The Band will strobe 10 seconds before the Hub alarms. This is a pre-alert to warn swimmers who may be pushing the extremes of their breath holding limits to return immediately to the surface. This will also alert “Walk-offs” to return to the swimming area immediately before the Hub is alerted.
NOTE: The Hub should be placed at least 2-3 feet above the ground to increase the range of the System.
