Benefits of a Temporary Pool Fence
When it comes to pool safety nothing beats a temporary pool fence. However, there are people who don’t want or need a permanent fence around their pool. This can create a problem for grandparents or others who only need the extra protection of a fence when friends or family come to visit. While pool covers can work on rare occasions, they make using the pool more difficult. Unlike a pool cover which needs to be removed and put back every time your grandkids want to use the pool, a safety fence makes pool access easy. This is what makes temporary pool fences such an amazing option for those who want the added safety without a permanent fence.
Temporary pool fencing works on almost every terrain or landscaping you may have around your pool. The versatility of these fences mean that they can be installed on stairs, hills, grass, concrete, and almost any feature in your yard. This makes temporary pool fences perfect for those with intricate yards or additional water features that hinder other safety options.
Minor or No Drilling Required
There are a few types of temporary pool fencing available to fit your needs. Most temporary pool fences require a small amount of drilling and installing anchors around the pool where the fence will attach. These anchors are small and level with the surrounding surface, so they are not in the way when the fence is not installed.
An alternative option is a free-standing temporary pool fence. These fences are attached to a completely removable base which will be filled with water or sand to hold it in place. These are beneficial because there are no holes or drilling required. However, they do take up more space when in storage, and require more work to set up and take down.
Easy Set-up and Removal
Once the system is installed professionally, homeowners can easily set up the fence whenever they need it. The fencing material easily roles up to be stored away when not in use. If you chose the anchored system, set up will involve attaching the poles to the preset anchors. If you chose a freestanding option, this would mean filling the bases with water or sand and attaching the fencing material. Then when your grandkids leave, removal is just as easy as set up and you’re back to business as usual.
Self-Latching and Self-Closing Gate
In comparison to a pool safety cover or net, fencing is much more convenient. Taking a quick swim with the grandkids doesn’t require removing anything, you simply open the gate and let the memories begin. One of the best features of temporary pool fencing is the self-closing and self-latching gates. When you are finished this feature makes sure that the pool is secured as soon as you hear it latch into place behind you.
We all know that one kid who just loves to climb everything in sight. Those adventurous souls can be difficult to manage. The mesh material of pool fencing has small holes that aren’t climbable, even for the best escape artists. Fencing also means you don’t have to coax a strong-willed toddler off the pool cover with a lollipop and promises of swimming later.
Temporary pool fences really give you the best of both worlds; the unobstructed view and access to your pool for the majority of the year while still providing the added safety when needed.
Most homeowners are proud of their pools and enjoy displaying and using them regularly. However, safety comes first, especially with small children around. Temporary fencing gives you the flexibility to keep your pool secured when needed without sacrificing for the rest of the year.
