Top Criteria That Your Pool Fencing Must Meet

by Connor Peters

If you have a pool or are thinking about having one installed, then you will need to have a fence installed around it. This is often required, and even if it isn't actually required in your area, it's still probably something you will want to do. You shouldn't install just any fence around your pool, however. Instead, you should make sure that your pool fencing meets certain criteria. If you are wondering about the criteria that your pool fencing should meet, these are some of the things you should look for.

Meets Local Requirements

First of all, you should find out about any local requirements in regards to pool fencing and fencing in general. In many areas, you are not only required to have a fence around your pool but you're also required to be sure that the fence is a certain height and that it meets other requirements. Additionally, you should find out about HOA requirements or other local requirements about fencing in general. Your HOA might require that your fence is of a certain type or colour, for example.

Looks Good

You probably consider your pool to be your backyard oasis, so you probably want your pool area to look nice. In fact, you might have even spent extra money for a custom-designed pool, and you might have put some time, money and effort into landscaping your pool area nicely. Because of this, you'll probably want to install a nice-looking fence that will be aesthetically pleasing and finish off the look of your pool area.

Can Be Easily Cared For

You might already spend a lot of time taking care of your swimming pool, so you probably don't want to install a fence that is going to take a lot of time and effort to take care of, too. For that reason, it's a good idea to install a low-maintenance fence. Then, you won't have to worry about spending a lot of time on the fence, and you can instead spend that time in your pool.

Provides Ample Security

Obviously, one of the main reasons to install a fence around your pool is for safety and security purposes. You don't want unauthorized people using your pool and you probably don't want strangers and neighbors on your property without your permission. You'll want to be sure that your pool fence is tall and secure, and you should make sure that it has a secure gate that you can lock.
