Pool Fence Code

Pool fence code is always a question by homeowners and a requirement before a final pool inspection can be approved by the local building inspectors. We get multiple frantic phone calls per week from homeowners asking the question, “What do I need?” My pool contractor said “You need to handle the fence.” Does this sound like you? If so keep reading and I’ll walk your the steps.

Start by calling a local fence professional fence contractor in your area and ask “What is pool fence code?”.  They should be able to recite the pool fence code and be able to give you options over the phone.  Then request that the licensed contractor visit your build site to ensure they have all of the correct field measurements, proper materials that meet your counties pool fence code prior to signing a contract.
