A reliable, safety pool fence might be the single most crucial feature that will help deter your pets or kids from falling into your swimming pool while you are not paying attention. These are significant and effective safety barriers that can save lives. Here’s a few tips and pointers on what goes into a pool fencing installation.

Installing Pool Fencing

We recommend contacting your local contractor or dealer for the very first step of installing some pool fencing. Your local contractor will schedule a free, onsite estimate to locate the best solution and price for your pool’s specified needs. The average price can vary, depending on the materials, size, and location. Keep this in mind when considering the gates, fence, and type of surface the fence will be installed onto.

What to Expect on Installation Day

On the day of your pool fencing installation, your local contractor will meet up with you to review the project’s entire scope before any real work starts. Once the plan has your stamp of approval, the installation process will start. The pool safety fence installation process will begin with drilling at designated spots in your pool deck. Your new pool fencing will be anchored into these points. Each point is typically placed every 36 inches or so to ensure optimal durability but might differ a bit based on the layout best-suited for your pool.

The entire installation process will take a few hours. However, some installation times might differ depending on the shape or scope of your pool. Very large pools and complex shapes extend the installation process to a second day on infrequent occasions.

Why DIY is Not the Smartest Solution

When you install some safety pool fencing right away the first time, you get the absolute best long-term results. But the process isn’t as simple as we make it look. Proper installation demands tested methods, trusted tools, and installation experience for the best results. Common mistakes that are made during the DIY pool safety fencing installation could damage your pool or put the durability and safety of your fence at risk. Those mistakes can cost thousands of dollars to repair. Therefore, it is not recommended to go with a DIY installation.
