Can I Install Mesh Pool Fencing Myself?
All-Safe removable pool fences are simple to set up and take down, but their initial installation is another story. Installation of a mesh pool fence is not as easy as it appears. Learn about the risks and the tools you’ll need before you try a DIY pool fence installation.
What Can Go Wrong?
Making a mistake while installing your pool fence can result in expensive damage to your pool deck. The process involves drilling precise anchoring holes at exact intervals. Doing this wrong could cause a crack in your patio material, or result in a hole drilled in the wrong spot.
If this happens, you may not notice until after you get the fences put up, only to find that the tension of the fence is too tight or too loose. This can result in an odd-looking fence, or worse, a weakened fence that may put the safety of your family in jeopardy.
What Does It Take to Do The Job Right?
It takes considerable time, patience, effort, and specialized tools to get a do-it-yourself pool fence installation done right the first time. You’ll need to know the proper method and angle of the holes to be drilled, have the right tools to customize fencing sections, and if possible, a specialized drill that will avoid harm to your pool deck.
