TOP 5 POOL FENCES – What Makes a Difference in a Regular Fence and a Pool Fence?



So before we start…what makes a pool fence different from a regular fence? Great question! Pool fence can be about any style of fence out there but will have safety and security issues addressed to keep small children from accessing the pool area. A national board for building codes and specifically pool codes is BOCA residential building codes authority. Instead of reinventing the wheel, most communities will adopt the BOCA code for the codes since it is nationally recognized. Your community may  place stronger codes requirements on top of the BOCA codes so always check with your local building codes authority for confirmation.

Before making a final decision on your pool fence, it is always a good idea to check in with your homeowners insurance company that will be insuring you for the backyard pool.  Local codes may  require a 48″ high fence but your homeowners insurance may be more stringent requiring 60″ height.  They will be the ones insuring you in case of an accident and if you do not comply with their minimum standard they may choose to eliminate coverage.
