Why would you want to install a fence surrounding your pool? There are two reasons for why this may be of interest to you.
Safety is of utmost importance – Over 300 children drown in residential pools every year. A fence does not eliminate drownings but they sure do help. Make sure you also have adult supervision while youngsters swim in your pool. A fence will also help keep your pet from getting in the pool and either drowning or ruining your pool liner.
A fence may be required by law – Even though, there is not a Federal law requiring a fence around your pool, there may be a local law. Check with your municipality to see what is required. If you foster children or are planning to adopt and you have a pool, you will need to have a fence installed.
