*** Please note that every panel of fencing corresponds to a particular section of holes in your pool deck. If you plan to reinstall your pool fence after storing it, it is important to keep track of these corresponding sections as they will need to be put back in the same deck locations. There are many strategies that will allow you to keep track of your fence order. One easy way is by giving the start of each fence section a number or letter. It is best to physically label the holes (either in the deck sleeve or under the ground hole covers) or create a diagram for yourself, especially if the fence will remain stored for an extended period of time. Then write the designated value on a piece of painters tape and place it on the corresponding panel.***
Removal and storage of your fence take an average of 15 minutes.
1. Start by unlatching the safety hooks between fence panels. To do this you will have to firmly hold the top of the connected poles while simultaneously pulling back the spring-loaded sleeve on the hook to unhook the latch.
2. After the panels are unhooked from one another, fence tension will be released and you can begin lifting the fence poles out of their ground sleeves.
3. Insert ground hole covers, roll up the mesh panels, and store.
If your fence hasn’t been regularly maintained, you may come against some resistance during the removal process:
Stuck Safety Hooks: Use WD40 or another silicone spray to lubricate the springs, hooks, and eyes. After letting it sit for a few minutes, you should be able to pull the spring back and unhook the latch more easily.
Stuck Poles: The longer a pole stays in the ground, the more difficult it will be to remove. If you are having difficulty removing a pole, begin by hosing the fence down with water to loosen the ground. After the ground area around the poles are moist, try twisting the pole. If the pole does not twist, you should add more water to the ground then try moving the pole in small circles, but be careful not to push or pull too hard on the pole or you may risk damaging it.
To REINSTALL your fence:
1. Lay all fence sections next to their corresponding deck holes.
2. If you haven’t already, remove your deck hole covers, then hose out any debris located within the deck sleeves.
3. Begin inserting the fence poles, pushing them down deep enough so the border material of the mesh touches the deck. (If the mesh does not touch the deck, you may need to clean the deck sleeve again.) When reinstalling your gate, make sure the door swings outward, away from the pool.
4. After you have reinserted all of the poles, you can begin reconnecting the panel sections by securing the latches, starting with the gate.
