A sparkling beautiful swimming pool is the crowning jewel of a good landscaped yard. However, if not properly fenced, it can be dangerous. Since pool fences are never attractive, designers struggle with this safety element. You may not need such a fence if it is an all-adult community. However, if the backyard is frequented by children and pets, the fence will be necessary. There are various ways to make the pool fence in your backyard look better and blend into the surroundings. This should be done professionally that will adhere to governmental standards. You can hire a skilled designer who will assess your lifestyle and the site to decide the best way to install a swimming pool safety fence. The following are three basic strategies:
Regulations for a Typical Pool Fence
This applies to non-portable spas, swimming pools and hot tubs. Regulations may vary by city and state. Before constructing a fence, you must verify with the local building department.
III. Solid fences must not have protrusions or indentations.
VII. The fence should be clear of any structure that might be used to climb over.
Majority of the pool safety fences are made of powder coated steel or aluminum. Fences constructed with aluminum are the best to surround your pool. The aluminum construction protects it from rust and its finish can withstand the chemicals and moisture in the pool environment.
