Barriers for pools
All Pools must be required to have pool fences around them.A barrier that is 5 to 6 ft high,non climbing or attractive to young children.Fence gates should be self closing and self latching,the gate should be well maintained as to close and latch easily and out of reach of young children.
The fence or other barriers
should be at least 5 feet high.
It should have no foot- or handholds that could help a young child to climb it. Vertical fence slats should be less than 4 inches apart to prevent a child from squeezing through. If the fence is chain link,then no part of the diamond-shaped opening should be larger than 1-3/4 inches.
If the house forms one side of the barrier,then doors leading from the house to the pool should be protected with alarms that produce an audible sound when a door is unexpectedly opened.
Install an alarm that can be temporarily turned off by an adult for a single opening of the door by using a keypad or switch that is out of a child
