Having a pool safety fence on your property is a great feature to have at your home. On those summer days, a backyard pool is useful. Unfortunately, drowning is one of the leading reasons of death for children. You want to ensure the smaller kids don’t have access to the pool! A pool safety fence is beneficial because it can keep your children safe. Consider what you can complete to keep your kids safe, and call Hercules Fence of Northern Virginia!
Pool Safety Fence vs. Pool Nets/Covers
Pool nets and covers on the pool are ineffective as protection because they can still provide children access to the swimming pool. In contrast, a pool safety fence is beneficial due to the following:
- A pool fence is convenient because you can use it at any time. On the other hand, it will take time to get pool access when you utilize a net or pool cover. Afterward, you will have to apply the cover back to the pool.
- Also, a pool safety fence is beneficial due to its flexibility. Regardless of the landscape, you or a professional fencing contractor can place the fence on any surface.
Rather than have a pool fence with vertical slats, make one with boards running horizontally instead. This will provide you with similar privacy and a more rustic feel to your pool area. In some cases, a fence can be made by putting multiple fence posts next to each other. This may be a great choice if you recycle more than one old fence. Best of all, this fence type will allow you a bit of privacy and also allow you to view beyond your pool area.
Building a Pool Safety Fence for Your Pets
Lastly, we should never forget that our pets can fall accidentally into pools. Although some dogs can swim, not all can. The same applies to other animals, including cats. The fence can be built tall enough at five or more feet high to remove any chance your family cat or cats jump over. Overall, Hercules Fence of Northern Virginia can successfully implement your ideas.
