Choosing Your Pool Fence
You have a pool in your backyard and most likely you have local building codes that say you need a fence around it. But what type of fences to get, what’s the best for you?
You might be confused by the selection of pool fences you can find: wrought iron, metal, wood, mesh even glass. You know that an attractive pool fence can also enhance your landscape and pool design.
However don’t forget the first thing first! At all times safety should be your number one priority. It’s important to find a fence that will give you a peace of mind that your children are safe around the pool. Drowning is still is the leading cause of death of children under the age of 5.
Your local building code was created to avoid accidents, so when you decide for pool fence you should find a fence that is approved by your local government. A type of fence that is secure with a self-closing, self-latching gate with no top cross bar that young children cannot climb over.
So let’s go over the list: wood fences can block the view, glass fences are difficult to clean, iron fences do rust all of these are easy to climb over… I believe Mesh is the way to go.
Mesh fences are coming in different colors, heights so they can completely bend in to your surroundings. They don’t block the view, do not rust and you don’t need to clean. If you want ecstatically pleasing choose a color that matches your backyard and pool design. It is easy to install, it is removable and safe.
