They are all understood to have been found by the children’s mum and Fontus’ wife Anne Marie Dolce.
Police said they were called to the home in Hollywood shortly after 3:30pm.
It is not clear how all three died but police are reported to be investigating the incident as an accident.
Dolce said she had been looking at old pictures of her family since their death.
“It does make me smile at the same time, but the reality of the situation is really heavy and hard,” she told Local10.
A GoFundMe for the family had raised more than $27,000 ($A 37,100).
It reads: “After breakfast, playtime and lunch, like any other day, Wes, Emmie and Tyler went for their last swim together in the family’s pool.
“We imagine that they played in the pool, Emmie and Tyler climbing onto and splashing water at dad as always.
“At some point, something happened that caused that fun time to come to a sudden end.
“We may never know how, and we will surely never understand why, but we are comforted in knowing that Dad, Emmie, and Tyler are together in Heaven in the loving hands of God.”
