With rapidly rising temperatures and Summer weather just around the corner, it’s finally time to start enjoying your pool again. But before you jump in, you might want to consider installing a new pool fence. Not only do these barriers add a bit of visual flair to your yard, but they can also keep your loved ones safe and add a bit of privacy to your summer oasis. Here are a handful of benefits these fences provide, as well as some of the options we currently offer.
Make Your Pool a Safer Place
While your pool can be a spot for recreation and relaxation, it is important to keep in mind the potential dangers. The drowning statistics are alarming, especially with children, and it has been found that barriers can significantly cut back on the risk. This added layer of protection will keep kids and pets out of the pool, greatly limiting the potential for drowning. While it does not replace adult supervision, a simple barrier can deter children from entering the pool unsupervised or from pets accidentally wandering in. Fences should be at least four feet tall, but we recommend aiming for around five to be safe. A secure self-latching gate will provide an extra bit of safety as well.
Maintain and Improve Your Privacy
Not only do pool fences provide safety, but they can also keep out unwanted guests and prying eyes. Without a barrier, a pool can quickly become a hotspot for wildlife. From geese and squirrels to bigger threats like coyotes, animals might start making your pool their own. A fence can help keep out curious animals, immediately signaling that it is off-limits. Beyond this, the fence can add an extra layer of privacy. No longer can people see right into your pool, disturbing your relaxation. With a newly installed pool fence, you can rest easy, knowing that your privacy has been restored and no unwanted visitors will stop by.
What Material is the Best Fit For You
We offer a wide variety of fencing materials, so it can be challenging to make a decision. We often recommend aluminum or vinyl for pool barriers, but chain link is also popular with many commercial and residential properties. Vinyl can add additional privacy to your pool, as it has minimal gaps, while chain-link offers extra security. All materials are easily maintained and cleaned, ensuring your new pool fence still looks beautiful many years down the road.
