Summertime is upon us and you know what that means? Picnics, popsicles and pool season! If you own a pool or your thinking about investing in one, there are quite a few things you’ll need to do before preparing for your family’s annual cannonball competition.
Opening a pool is more than just filling it up with water. You’ll need to check the filter, inspect for any offseason damage, get your PH levels in check and be sure your fence is in good condition. Not only does a fenced in pool offer privacy, it provides safety and security for you and your guests.
With Memorial Day right around the corner, now is the time to consider installing or reinstalling a pool fence before the official start of summer begins. Here are several reasons your friends at Pittsburgh Fence Company think you should repair or consider investing in a pool fence today.
It Could Be a Law! Most states, cities and municipalities require a fence around your pool, even if your pool isn’t a permanent structure. Movable metal frame pools or inflatable above ground pools may fall into this category. Always check with your local ordinances if you’re not sure about laws regarding pool fencing.
Safety First. While you may think, “What’s another week or two” when you realize your pool fence is need of repair, per the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health pool fencing significantly reduces the risk of drowning. Think of young children or neighbors who could easily wander around your pool. Pool fencing is the only way to prevent unwanted access to a poolside area. If your pool fence needs tending to, call the Pittsburgh Fence Company immediately and let your friends and neighbors know to be extra careful if they’ll be on your property.
