Swimming pools offer a refuge for relaxation, but they can bring headaches if you don’t know the law.
For instance, the city of Houston, Texas requires fences around residential pools. “The height of the fence must be at least 4 feet in all sections, and all gates must be self-closing and self-latching,” its Department of Health and Human Services website states. Georgia state law also requires at least 4-foot-tall fences surrounding swimming pools.
Residential pool owners should verify any requirements that may apply to their city, state and county authorities.
Laws aside, for many home owners, the challenge is to make their pool a safe and stylish addition to their backyard area.
Whether you’re planning a modern, open space or a leafy garden paradise, the right pool fencing can keep your pool secure and look great while doing it.
