«Forget about the cost. A drowning or near-drowning changes the life of those involved forever. Installing this system in each of our pools can’t be measured in dollars and cents. It’s the right thing to do and it’s priceless if it helps to save one life ».
COO, Metropolitan YMCA Atlanta, in Perspective, October 2003 -USA
« I know the nature of lifeguarding and it is a tough job. This system is not a replacement for them. In fact, our guards are excited about using it. They feel it’s a tool to help them be more effective in the event of a potential drowning ».
President and CEO, Sarasota Family YMCA, Florida--USA
« This is a safety measure that we have taken to offer another layer of protection for all of our members. With the increasing number of children and families visiting the Y, we feel that installing the Poseidon system is another measure that we have taken to ensure that our children participate safely and thrive at the Y ».
President and CEO, YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region, Colorado -USA
This system is a marvel of technology. It is patterned after human behavior, so it intuitively knows what to look for and how and when to alert the lifeguard about an incident. Our guards now feel they are able to do their job well, because Poseidon makes them more capable.
Dr. Thomas Fowler-Finn
I am therefore comfortable in recommending this product to our clients and other aquatic facility administrators who operate aquatic facilities where the lifeguards can be adequately trained to incorporate this technology into their existing rescue protocols.
Mr. Jeff Ellis
We feel as though the system has saved the little girl’s life.The pool at the time was very busy. The lifeguards were at full stretch, we can say the extra pair of eyes identified her.This is the first time we’ve had to use it in the two years it has been installed. Everything worked according to plan."
The Poseidon System is an excellent example of how advances in technology can support the work of our pool lifeguards. I believe that this technology will play an important part in aquatic life saving in the future."
This is one of the most exciting developments in pool safety to hit the market that I have yet seen! The technology is sound -- we have seen it working. The system does not replace the lifeguard, but helps the lifeguard to be even more vigilant and on the ball. This is new technology at its best. Swimming pool drownings could one day become a thing of the past thanks to Poseidon!

We currently consider the Poseidon System an essential tool in the prevention of drowning accidents. That's why we decided to equip our site with the system and integrate it in our quality approach.
Mr. Benoit Pujol
To me, your system appears to be one of the tools that will allow officials and their associates to wipe out the remaining uncertainties.
Mr. Jean-Paul Delanoy
I am a lot less stressed and a lot less worried because I know that the System is very effective when it comes to reaching beyond the limits of human competence. It's true, spotting a person at the bottom of the pool with all the other users around and the light reflecting off the water is actually very difficult. This system makes me feel a lot safer.
Mr. Yves Martin
Automatic systems that help detect drowning accidents such as Poseidon provide essential assistance and are a determining factor in improving safety.
