Removable Pool Fence
During the summer, there’s nothing quite like a refreshing dip in a swimming pool. However, having a private pool in your home can pose a significant safety risk for children. In fact, a majority of childhood drownings in pools occur in the child’s own home pool, while about a third of incidents happen in the homes of relatives, friends, or neighbors. Statistics show that most near-drownings and drownings take place during the summer and late spring, with the highest number of fatal incidents occurring in the western and southern regions of the country. Unfortunately, drowning is the leading preventable cause of death for children aged one to four. With so many homes having swimming pools, it’s crucial to understand how to keep your children safe. That’s why we’re excited to share an exclusive look at Guardian’s Removable Pool Fencing Options.
Removable Pool Fencing
Installing a fence around your pool is the safest measure you can take according to Becky Turpin, the NSC director of home community safety. A pool fence puts in place a barrier that will keep your kids out of the pool. You should note, that it won’t replace parental supervision. The gates of the fence should be designed in such a way that they open outward away from the pool area. More so, the gates should be self-latching and self-closing. Despite the lack of federal pool-fence law, several cities and states have come up with their laws that state fence requirements and specifications such as the minimum height. Many building codes will require you to have a Permanent Pool Fence. In this case, Removable Pool Safety Fencing won’t be a good option for you.
Being the safest option to keep your kids safe, several types of removable pool fence are available on the market. However, it is only a few of them that are designed to provide maximum pool safety. It is advisable that you go to a reputable company such as Guardian. We have patented and innovative designs, excellent customer care, and highly skilled installers to ensure that you and your family will have a secure and safe environment around your pool.
Guardian’s Removable Mesh Pool Fences
Since its establishment in 1989, Guardian Pool Fence has been dedicated to keeping children safe around swimming pools. Our ultra-tough and durable swimming pool fence ensures that safety is the last thing you need to worry about.
Our fences are constructed locally in the United States, under strict construction standards to ensure the highest level of quality. With a removable design, our fences provide a safe and effective barrier to prevent drowning accidents while also making it easy to access the pool when needed.
It is important to keep the pool fence up at all times and ensure that the gate is always closed. Even though a removable pool fence may not have a gate, it can still pose a risk if not closed properly. Always remember to close the fence when you leave the pool area to avoid any safety hazards.
Our Premier mesh is highly transparent, and our marine-grade aluminum poles provide sturdy support. The fence is installed into sleeves that are placed into your surface deck, making it durable and reliable.
Our No Holes Pool Fence stands on 3-feet long bases filled with water, ensuring its stability and immovability.
Our removable pool fence uses tension to remain in place, but we advise regular inspections to ensure everything is in its proper place and to maximize the fence’s benefits.
While we can create custom sizes, our standard fence comes in 12-foot sections that can be easily rolled up and removed by homeowners in under 15 minutes. However, we recommend keeping the fence up until your children are old enough to no longer require supervision.
We advise against removing the fence for day-to-day use, even though it is easily removable. Instead, consider providing another gate section at a different convenient location to ensure the safety of your children.
Don’t risk accidents at parties or other events. Always keep the fence closed and secured, especially when children are present. Parties can be distracting, and parents or guardians may not always have eyes on their children, so taking extra precautions is essential.

Why is Our Pole the Safest Option?
A common assumption with many pool owners is that all pool fence poles are similar. Well, this is not true. We matched our poles against other pool fence poles and found out that ours are stronger. See the video. Aluminum poles can break easily even when the pressure or force is too much. However, our Premier Pole proved that it doesn’t break. Thanks to this resilience, you can expect a safe pool barrier that can take bumping up against it by children or adults leaning on it during parties.
What Makes Our Removable Fences Great?
Apart from being strong, our pool fence is also durable. It includes several elements that work together to ensure safety around your pool as much as possible. The poles are the main components that secure the fence sturdily.
These poles are so strong that it will take very high forces to bend or even break. Other than the poles, we have also included weatherproof mesh and borders to give you a see-through barrier. The pool fence will remain intact even with daily use and any weather, whether it is sunny, rainy, or cold.
Benefits of Installing Self Closing/ Self Locking Gates
Self-closing or self-latching gates offer better protection as they close themselves automatically. Therefore, if there are people in the house and you forget to close your gate, you’ll still be assured of their safety. The gate should swing outwards or away from the pool. The benefits of the self-closing gate is that you don’t have to close or lock these gates physically. Thus, they are safer in instances when you have to suddenly leave the pool area. You get a phone call or something. Please note, our No Holes Pool Fence doesn’t come with a gate. If you’d like a gate it is possible, but you will have to drill holes for it.
How High Does a Pool Fence Need to Be?
Well, pool fences are generally 4 to 5 feet high, depending on the user’s request. For average toddlers, a 4-foot high fence is the minimum advisable option. Our fences have no top cross bar, so it is very difficult for young children to climb over. Please make sure you will keep patio furniture far away from the pool, kids can use that to get over the fence.
How Far Apart Are the Fence Poles Supposed to Be?
Fence poles are mostly used to strengthen the tension in the removable pool fence. Thus, the less they are apart, the better the strength they will be. We designed our pool fence poles 36 inches apart and our fence comes in 12 feet sections.
What is the Best Mesh Material?
Many manufacturers today use polyester mesh with a vinyl coating when designing fence mesh. It’s like a continuous basket weaved through to ensure sturdy construction. Thus, it makes the pool fence strong and sturdy. The vinyl coatings can resist mildew which makes them easy to clean.
Should I Have a Bordered Mesh?
Yes. For complete safety, ensure that the four sides of your mesh have borders. This gives your fence a finished look and prevents the mesh from unraveling. You want to make sure that the mesh is strong and won’t sag with time.
Remember that children are fast learners and can quickly learn to open and close doors. Therefore, a pool fence will add an extra layer of protection around your home.

Consider installing an alarm to alert you when the pool gates are opened. You can also invest in purchasing an underwater alarm system that detects wave activity using motion sensors. It will alert you when anyone dives or falls into the swimming pool. Some of the states, such as Tennessee has made it mandatory for homeowners to install a pool alarm system when building a pool due to its proven effectiveness.
Have A First Aid Kit and Rescue Equipment Near the Pool

These rescue equipment should be stored near the pool in an accessible and clearly marked area for an emergency. You should also check them regularly to make sure they remain in good condition.

Though they won’t be drown-proof, they will be a lot safer in water. There are lots of swimming classes being offered all over Los Angeles, including private lessons if your kid has trouble learning how to swim.
Inspecting Drain Covers
In one of the famous incidents, a seven-year-old girl drowned due to the suction pressure from an underwater drain while in a hot tub. This is an indication that drain covers might turn into death traps. Even after you have put in place a removable pool fence, ensuring your drain covers are rounded and have no missing screws or cracks will help keep your kids safe when they get into the pool.
Safe Chemical Storage
Swimming pool chemicals are useful for killing disease, causing organisms in the water. However, they might cause havoc if mixed improperly or handled without using the correct protective gear. You must store the chemicals in a safe place away from kids reach.
Inspecting the Pool Area for Slip Hazards Daily
When items are left near the pool edge, your kids might slip on the objects and fall into the pool. Put efforts in ensuring that toys, tubes, cleaning equipment, and floats are eliminated from the pool area when not in use.
