Be a responsible swimming pool owner: install a pool fence

folder_openSports & Leisure

The summer of 2018 has been one of the hottest on record, and swimming pool owners have been able to make the most of the warm weather, cooling off in the hot summer afternoons and weekends. However, while a swimming pool is a great feature of your home, it also comes with a responsibility that shouldn’t be neglected. A pool increases safety risks at your home, drowning the third highest cause of accidental child death in the UK.

Improve your swimming pool safety

A fence surrounding your swimming pool protects your children and pets. All parents know that you can’t be everywhere at once, and a fence protects those brief lapses of parental supervision. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that surrounding your pool with a fence that is at least four feet high reduces the risk of potential drowning by 83%. In addition, while a pool barrier could be climbed, a welded mesh fence maintains tension and provides a secure physical barrier that can’t be bypassed or climbed over by children or pets.

Affordable investment to secure your family’s safety.

The cost of installing a fence around your swimming pool varies based on the size and location of your pool. While a glass pool barrier may be considered more aesthetically pleasing to some, they are not very easy to maintain and can be very expensive to remove later if needed. A welded mesh fence offers high visibility, so you can see what’s happening in the pool, as well as great durability, low maintenance, and easy removability making for a great solution to secure safety around your swimming pool. It’s important to keep in mind that the cost of installing a swimming pool fence is nothing in comparison to the cost of losing a family member.

A swimming pool is a place to relax and enjoy happy times with your family and friends. By installing a fence, you ensure that this great feature of your home remains a safe and happy area for your family for many years to come.
