Georgia summers can be scorching hot and there is no better relief than jumping in your backyard pool. While they are an easy and convenient way to stay cool at home, pools also pose some safety hazards. A pool fence is a smart addition that adds many benefits to your pool area.
Increased Security and Safety
An average of 3,500 to 4,000 people drown per year in the United States and drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1-4 years old. Pool fences are a necessity if you have young children or anyone who does not know how to swim living or visiting your home.
Whether you are self-conscious in a bathing suit or simply do not like the idea of your neighbors being able to view your pool area, a pool fence can provide a level of privacy.
The price of your pool fence depends on multiple factors, including the size of the pool, the type of fence, and its location, but the cost of adding a fence to your pool area is nothing compared to the cost of losing a precious life.
No matter the size, shape, or materials of your pool, you can find a pool fence to suit your needs and style.
Convenience and Peace of Mind
Pool nets and covers require replacement after each use. A pool fence, however, requires almost no effort at all to be effective. A self-latching and self-closing gate with a lock that is located high on the fencing will ensure your pool area is locked and off limits until you are ready to open it.
Adhere to Rules and Laws
Many cities, jurisdictions, and states have laws in place regarding pools and fences. Georgia state law requires fencing around any swimming pool and there are specific details outlined regarding how your safety fence should be built. At First Fence of Georgia we are knowledgable of all these laws so you can rest assured your pool fence will adhere to the proper requirements.
Save on Insurance
A pool fence can often lead to a discount on your homeowners’ insurance and some insurers may even require a fence.
Keep Critters Out
Another benefit to pool fencing is to keep unwanted animals (neighborhood pets or wildlife) out, offering an extra amount of protection for your pool.
