Pool Fence Frequently Asked Questions

General Fence Questions

All-Safe® pool fencing is a removable barrier designed to help keep your children and pets safe in the swimming pool area. Our pool fences are made of strong, durable, transparent mesh fabric with sturdy aircraft grade, aluminum poles. The poles are inserted into small holes drilled into your pool deck, and the fence is held in place by tension. The fence provides a dependable, convenient, aesthetically pleasing layer of safety around your pool or spa. 

Absolutely, our mesh pool fencing is easy to use. The latches and gates are simple to operate, giving adults easy access into and out of the pool area. The mesh fence for your pool can easily be completely removed to create additional space on the pool deck, and it rolls up for easy storage. As a true swimming pool safety fence, children will have difficulty doing this unless explicitly taught how.

Deck plugs are also available to seal the holes around your deck while your pool fence is stored away.

All-Safe® has been manufacturing and installing pool fences in Orange, CA  for over 25+ years with a perfect safety record. Our fencing is commonly approved by foster care, daycare, and adoption agencies as a primary pool safety device. All major drowning prevention and swimming pool safety agencies recommend removable pool fencing as a key layer of protection. Our high-quality materials exceed nationally recognized ASTM Standards for pool fencing.

The transparent mesh allows for a clear view of the pool area, a critical safety factor. The mesh is extremely strong and durable and the poles are designed to prevent breakage. Self-closing, self-latching, key-lockable gates allow adults convenient access but provide a security measure to prevent children or pets from entering the pool area.

Every pool fence installation is considered custom. When you choose a pool fence, you and your local reseller will work together to discuss your layout and safety needs.  You determine where the fence starts and ends, as well as where you would like to install an optional self-closing, self-latching lockable gate. By adding a gated entry into to the fence, adults can conveniently walk in and out of the enclosed area without any hassle.

Manual openings are also an option for swimming pool fencing, which some customers can find a little more difficult to use because of the strong tension in the fence. To help ease this tension, EZ-Close handles are an optional item, which can be added during installation or at a later date.

The average cost to secure a pool (installation and materials) typically averages between $1,500 and $3,000 dollars. The price will vary depending on the type of product selected, the layout desired, the materials and the time required to complete the installation. Your local reseller will provide you with a quote, and help you determine the best way to keep your family safe while maintaining the use and enjoyment of your backyard.

All-Safe® pool fences are made to withstand the tests of time, but damage sometimes happens. In that case, repairs are possible.

For service on your fence, you can contact the company that installed your pool fence to request service or you can order parts online and make the repair yourself. For most fence repairs, a simple part and a few minutes to make the repair is all that is needed.

If you cannot find that part you need? No problem! Send us an email with a photo showing the part you need repair on and we will do our best to assist you with finding a replacement!

For warranty questions or concerns,  you will need to contact the reseller/installer that sold and/or installed your pool fence. Resellers offer their own warranties and are not addressed by All-Safe®. 

Proper care and maintenance will ensure the longevity (and effectiveness!) of your pool safety investment. Thankfully, caring for your pool fence is a pretty easy chore! You’ll need mild dish soap, a warm bucket of water, and a bristle type brush to make sure you clean the mesh fabric well. Make sure to avoid any sort of harsh chemicals; basic soap will do the trick. 

There are several types of pool fencing available on the market, but very few are designed specifically for pool safety. Perimeter fences are most commonly used to follow the property line of your home, keeping people outside of your property and away from your pool. Isolation fences, such as mesh fencing, are used to separate your home from the pool or spa area.

Wrought iron fencing is sometimes used as a safety barrier. This type of fence is climbable, obstructs the look of the pool area, rusts over time, and can be difficult to remove.

Glass fencing offers pleasant transparency for pool areas. However, glass fencing is very difficult to keep clean, isn’t removable, and can be extremely expensive.

Chain link fencing is quite obstructive to the view of the pool and is usually considered to be a construction fence. It is very climbable since the diamond-shaped openings act as steps for children to use to easily get over the fence and gain pool access.

Wood fencing is not transparent and does not allow a clear view of the pool. For safety reasons, this is a huge drawback. It also obstructs your view of the natural beauty of your pool and yard area.

Removable mesh fencing is the clear choice for providing peace of mind to responsible pool owners. There are two mesh pattern styles available, and many customizable features to ensure your pool safety fencing matches the aesthetic of your backyard.

The first step in purchasing an All-Safe® pool fence is to get in touch with a local reseller. 

Click the orange button  on your screen that says "Get Started".  It will ask for your pool zip code to locate a reseller near you and provide you with their contact information.

The reseller will provide you with a quote for a pool fence and when you are ready to move forward, you will schedule your installation with them! 

Looking to purchase a fence to install yourself? No problem! You can also shop our online store for pool fence "DIY" options.


All-Safe mesh pool fencing is untearable, and the poles are designed with marine grade aluminum for strength and rigidity. We also offer optional ultra inserts to increase durability. Unlike other manufacturers, our exclusive corner posts have been engineered to make turns beyond 45 degrees, which help to maintain tension around corners rather than forcing poles to bow awkwardly (a potential safety hazard).

The minimum available height for an All-Safe pool fence is 4 feet. A 5 foot option is also available. There are also available poles that go up to as tall as 8 feet in order to properly secure climbable structures.  In addition, the mesh fabric is climb-resistant. Small children cannot get a foothold to climb the fence like they might with chain link or wrought iron fencing.  

For extra protection, ensure that the layout you chose does not allow access to the pool area over items in your yard like BBQ's, retaining walls, planters, etc.  All-Safe does offer panels and longer poles to ensure that these areas are protected from unwanted access. Never leave chairs or other climbable objects near your pool fence. 

With a properly installed pool fence and all latching secured, it is virtually impossible for a child to pull the fencing and poles out, due to the force of the tension.

The standard pool fence is equipped with a safety hook latch with spring. All-Safe also offers self-closing, latching & key-lockable gates. This makes it easier for adults to go in and out of the pool area, but ensures children cannot get through while unsupervised. As long as your pool fence is properly installed and proper tension is maintained, your fence should not unlatch on it's own. 


We all want to keep our furry friends safe, and a mesh fence is a great solution for keeping pets out of the pool! We understand, though, that all pets have different behavior styles and you will know what is best for your pet in the long run. The quick answer: If your dog is a big fan of chewing or scratching objects that are in their way, you may want to consider an alternative option.

Accidents can happen and some dogs may damage the fence, but replacement parts are available. You can replace damaged mesh yourself or contact your reseller for service.

Mesh pool fences are one of the most effective solutions to help keep your pets out of the pool, but we understand that a fence for the pool isn’t ideal for every pet. A good alternative is the Safety Turtle 2.0 (available from our online parts store), a special kit that alerts you if your pet enters the pool. Our Safety Turtle features a velcro monitoring attachment that connects to your pet’s collar, and an alarm base that detects when the monitor has gone in the pool.

Update as of 2022: the manufacturer of the Safety Turtle 2.0 has had supply chain issues and has not been able to supply vendors with these alarms. We suggest that you research alternative alarms that may work for your pets needs.

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.
