Keep Your Pool Safe With A Pool Fence

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinmail

Do you know the extent of a homeowner’s obligation to keep their pool safe? Homeowners can be personally liable for the injuries caused to swimmers in their pool. Should an aggrieved party sue you for injuries sustained in your pool, you can be burdened with liability. Moreover, building codes across many U.S. States and cities require pool owners to install safety fences around their pools. It would be a prudent decision to consider investing in a pool fence to enhance the safety of your pool.

The Efficacy Of Various Pool Fences

Certain qualities of a fence determine if it is a safe pool fence or not. Consider for a moment that you have installed a wooden fence or a chain link fence around your pool. While this may appear like a reasonable way to prevent unauthorized pool use, inquisitive children may try getting over the fence, and they’ll likely succeed. A wooden fence, for instance, may feature planks of wood laid out in a pattern and feature spaces and slats that kids can use as a support to clamber into the pool.

Worse still, a wooden fence can limit the visibility you have to your pool. Children could get into the pool area and try to swim, which can be incredibly dangerous if you’ve lost sight of them. By the time you realize what occurred, a child may have drowned in your pool. Other fence types such as glass pool fences offer great aesthetic features, but less in terms of pool safety. Children could also run into glass pool fences since they are clear and not easily visible and sustain injuries.

Install A Suitable Pool Fence

The safest pool fence to protect your children is a removable mesh pool fence. This type of fencing is very convenient to use and easy to install. Despite its lightweight quality, a mesh pool fence is very strong and the materials used to construct it are ASTM compliant. This means it has undergone rigorous independent testing to ascertain its build quality and strength. Mesh pool fences are also transparent so that you can always keep an eye on your pool and help to eliminate the risks of unexpected accidents.

Steps to A Safe Pool

A pool fence is a great start to help reduce accidents around your pool. The pool area also needs to be monitored to reduce potential risks. If you have young children, setting some ground rules for pool use can also help to avoid the dangers that a pool can pose to them. For the little ones who are just learning to walk or riding a tricycle, pool covers or nets can be vital tools to keep them out of harm’s way. By coupling pool fences with supervision and some pool rules, you would enhance the safety of your pool.

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.
