Above Ground Pool Fence Installation
When it comes to the installation of an above ground swimming pool, there are many things to take into consideration and none more important than safety. The last thing you want is to install a pool that is not going to be safe for your family and others who may swim in the pool from time to time.
It is so easy to get so caught up in the excitement of installing a pool that we often overlook this detail, but many municipalities in this country require you to have a fence around your pool or yard. Now if you already have a fenced in yard you may not need to acquire a fence kit all though many families do. One big reason pool fences for above ground pools have gained popularity is the fact that they are far less expensive than fencing in an entire backyard and do a great job of keeping pool toys in the pool.
Obviously no one wants an accident to occur in their backyard, and with the right fence kit you can ensure that no one will be able to enter your pool without the use of a ladder. This is great piece of mind knowing that a child will not be able to get themselves into the water without the supervision of an adult.
Best yet, most people find that installing a universal swimming pool fence is quite simple. Once you have your above ground pool in place, this is a project that most can tackle alone as each section of fence attaches to the pool with basic hand tools. And the fence is constructed of lightweight high impact resin typically coming in white or off white color.
How Much Fence Do I Need?
Above ground swimming pool fencing is universal and designed to fit most all sizes, shapes and brands of above ground pools, so likely you will have no problem enclosing your swimming pool. The number of pieces required to enclose a desired amount of the pool will vary. This is calculated by the number of top rail sections you wish to enclose. Here is an example of this. The typical 24 foot pool has 16 top ledges around the top of the pool. If you wished to completely enclose the pool with only a section for the ladder to get in and out of the water, you would purchase 15 sections of fence.
Regardless if this is a new pool or a pool you have had for years, an above ground pool fence kit will likely make your pool safe for your family as well as the kids around the neighborhood and that piece of mind is well worth the expense.
