Your pool is a place for tropical relaxation while remaining at home, but it can quickly turn into a nightmare. Building a fence around your pool gives you an added layer of privacy and safeguards your pool from unwanted guests. Here are some of the top reasons to build a fence around your pool.

5 Reasons to Build a Fence Around Your Pool

It’s Required by Law

Not only is a fence around your pool a good idea, it’s often required by law. While laws regarding fences around your pool vary by state, in Maryland, you are required to have an adequate barrier around residential swimming pools. The barrier must be at least 48 inches high, and there are additional requirements that vary by county.

Safety

Installing a fence around your pool is one of the wisest decisions you can make as a homeowner. The fence ensures that your children and pets don’t wander into the pool unsupervised. You’ll feel at ease knowing that your loved ones are safe and cannot access the pool unless an adult is there to open the gate.

Liability

When you have a pool on your property, you assume additional liability. If someone is injured while using your pool, you may face a lawsuit. That’s why installing a fence around your pool is an excellent solution. It’s an affordable way to protect yourself and your wallet. 

More Privacy

Don’t want nosy neighbors staring at you while you’re enjoying your pool? A fence can help. Once you install your fence, you’ll truly be able to relax and unwind in your backyard oasis. Nobody can see you unless you want them to, and that’s worth the investment.

Beautification 

Fences don’t have to be ugly. In fact, there are plenty of fencing options to fit the aesthetic of virtually any pool. A new fence will accentuate your pool and add elegance to your yard. If you need help deciding on the right fencing material for your pool, a fencing expert can help. They’ll explain all the options available to you and help you decide on the best course of action.
