If you plan on installing a pool, you will be required to have a pool fence surrounding it. If you do not already have a privacy fence with a lock on your property, most insurance companies as well as cities require that a pool fence be included in your building plans.
If a child wanders outside without supervision, they can be attracted to the pool and fall in without you being aware of it. You want to protect your family as well as others with the use of a pool fence. Even though larger kids can jump the fence to get to your pool, if something happened to them while they are trespassing in your pool you will be held legally responsible if you did not install a pool fence and post signs warning them to keep out.
What Type of Pool Fence?
There are many types of a pool fence to choose from, you can make the selection that best suits your yard and décor.
