Swimming pool fencing
Best materials for swimming pool fencing
What do I mean by best materials? Simply maintenance free fencing with a lifetime warranty that will accent, not overpower your pool area. After all, your friends and family are coming over for a great party time. We want your friends to notice the pool, the landscaping, and the sun deck. Your pool fencing is an integral part of the pool security, but we really want people to overlook the fence.
The most popular swimming pool fencing is by far the open picket designs of black aluminum and premium vinyl in white, tan, or adobe.
Closed picket designs (smooth top rail) are popular with smaller children, whereas open picket designs (pickets extending thru the top rail) are popular with all pool customers.
The advantage of the picket fencing is that you can see right thru the fencing into the pool. Great for a quick check to make sure everybody is ok, or out of the pool when they are supposed to be.
Total privacy is achieved with the premium vinyl fencing. This vinyl fencing has a Titanium Oxide layer (sunscreen) and is warranted not to turn yellow for a lifetime. The premium vinyl privacy fencing is usually about 6′ high and will vary from 5′ to 8′. Normally we reinforce the premium vinyl pool fencing posts with 2″ schedule 40 galvanized steel posts 4′ deep in the ground. When working on new pools or rehabbing a pool, sometimes the existing ground has been disturbed along the fence line. It may have been back filled, or just not firm packed soil.
When we know of the poor soil conditions then we opt to use longer galvanized posts (12′ and longer) to drive into solid ground.
