Choosing wood for a pool fence is a rather economical option for enclosing your in-ground swimming pool. Depending on the level of privacy you want, you can style it as you like, such as picket and post top cuts into the wood. The wood of the fence should be changed every 7 to 12 years on average, depending on where you live and the weather conditions you experience. A wood fence also requires regular maintenance, for instance you have to seal or stain it every six to eight years, and or also replace pickets accordingly.

POOL FENCING OPTIONS

Depending on the municipality you reside in, pool fencing requirements can vary. It’s best that you contact your local permitting office and find out what you need to do when enclosing your pool with a fence. Verifying which codes apply to you beforehand will save you from a lot of hassle down the road.

If you are unsure about the pool fencing requirements in your municipality, contact EXTERIOR FENCE BUILDERS. We can help you ensure all national and local code requirements are met when fencing your in-ground swimming pool. Here are the basic requirements you need to know about from the International Swimming and Spa Code.

  • The fence must be four feet high and no less. Fences that are shorter than four feet won’t protect small children and pets from going out.
  • The distance between the ground and the bottom of the fence should be greater than 2 inches. This rule is again for safety purposes so that no one can enter your premises.
  • The gate of your pool fence must be self-closing and self-latching. It should also open away from the pool, not towards it. This code is specifically for the safety of swimmers, and the self-closing and self-latching door will keep your kids and pets safe in case you accidentally leave the door open. Also, since the door will open outwards, there is no danger of people bumping into the fence door accidentally.
  • The latch of your gate should be at least 54 inches above the ground or at least 3 inches below the top of the poolside gate. As long as the latch can be opened by reaching over, it should be placed on the high end. Having the latch on the high side of the door is important so that little kids or pets don’t have access to it.
  • If the fence around your pool is in conjunction with your house, you are required by law to install door alarms on all doors that open to the pool area. Door alarms are an excellent safety feature so you know at all times who is coming in and out of your pool area.
  • Lastly, any openings in the fence shouldn’t have a passage that is larger than a sphere with a diameter of four inches.

Apart from the municipality requirements, you also have to follow the guidelines of your homeowner’s association (HOA). The guidelines may be in relation to your pool fence’s type and color. If your house is managed by an HOA or similar community authorities, it’s your responsibility to find out all the relevant requirements and comply accordingly.
