The most important thing to keep in mind is that it keeps your friends and family safe, as well as stays within your budget.

Choosing the Right Pool

Mesh Fencing

This type of fencing is designed so that smaller kids can’t climb over it. Mesh is the perfect type of fencing to have for a swimming pool because it is attractive, transparent and removable. It can include an automatic or manual gate and locks. Premier Pools & Spas recommends looking at fiberglass or aluminum support posts to combat rust and have a maintenance free fence.

Vinyl Fencing

Another type of safety fencing is vinyl. Vinyl fencing can be purchased in specific length sections. The sections can easily be cut down to accommodate the size of your swimming pool. Vinyl fencing is a maintenance free and inexpensive fencing in comparison to wood and metal fencing. It also has an aesthetic appearance. Its aluminum insert at the bottom rail provides stability for environments where high wind speeds are possible.

Other Pool Safety Precautions

Owning a swimming pool cover is another recommendation that Premier Pools & Spas has for new pool owners. Not only does a pool cover help keep kids and animals out of the swimming pool, but a pool cover is perfect for when the seasons change. During the colder months, pool owners tend to shut down their swimming pool and put a pool cover over it, that way there isn’t any debris falling into your swimming pool during the harsher season.
