Can I Install a Mesh Pool Fence 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.

Is DIY Pool Fence Installation a Good Idea?

Unless you have worked in the industry and have the right experience, we highly recommend using a professional to make sure your new pool addition is built to withstand the test of time.

Customer satisfaction and safety are our top priorities, which is why we urge our customers to consider the time, knowledge and effort required to make their outdoor pool area shine, whether through their do-it-yourself pool fence installation, or one through a professional.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
