No. Your fence will look just like any other pool fence. The only difference is that your fence will not come out of the ground.
Why would you want to permanently install a fence?
This request is not typical of most pool owners. We typically will have this request when a pool owner is working with cities and permits & approvals are involved (aka Pass Code). In some cities and counties, they may require that the pool barrier is permanently in place. This is easily completed during the normal installation process or can be done at any time after installation. We simply make the removable part, permanent.
If you are not working with an inspector and just like the idea of making your removable fence permanent, we can do that too. Just let your reseller know.
How can I make my Pool Fence Permanent?
Take a look at our video on how to make your fence permanent, should you wish to do it on your own. You can also ask your local reseller if they can do it for you, during your installation or at any time afterwards (additional costs are involved).
Will I pass inspection if I permanently install my fence?
As simple as that question sounds…you need to talk to your inspector, they are the ultimate decision maker. We would like to think that in most cases you would, but it really all depends on your inspector and what the code requires of you. Your local reseller can work with you to see that you have what you need to pass. It is very important to inform your reseller up front if you will be needing to pass code or inspection. If you wait until after your fence is installed, it may be too late!
