The Benefits of Choosing a Removable Pool Fence Over a Pool Net or Pool Safety Cover

Fast install pool fencing

When you have a swimming pool as part of your backyard oasis but you also have kids and pets, safety should be your priority. While you can install locks and door alarms, it only takes a second with your back turned to create a risk you don’t want — and shouldn’t have — to face.

To reduce the risk of drowning, it’s important to put up another layer of defense. Your barriers include permanent fencing and gate, a removable pool fence, a pool net, or a pool safety cover.

SoCal Pool Fences installs pool nets, pool safety covers, and removable pool fences throughout Riverside County, including Temecula and Murrieta, as well as San Diego County. All three provide a secure barrier between children and the pool and pets and the pool. However, here’s why we always recommend installing a removable pool fence from Pool Guard over the other barrier safety fence

Removable Pool Fence

Depending on your yard layout, a removable pool fence can adjoin the house, fence, or wall. The pool security fence is either four or five feet tall and cannot be climbed due to its structure. The fence is designed to meet all safety codes and requirements for foster parents and daycare providers.

Other reasons to select a mesh removable pool fence is that it offers an attractive look and is available in many colors to integrate with your backyard decor.  Plus, sections of the fencing can be temporarily removed. The fencing can be easily dismantled when it’s no longer needed.

Removable pool fence installation requires a core drill or hammer drill for concrete pool decks. A complete fence surround may not be needed if there are other physical barriers or landscaping features that block entrance to the pool area.

Pool Safety Covers  

A pool safety cover stretches tightly across the pool  and are anchored into the pool deck. They are completely non-removable by children and can support the weight of a 4000-pound car. Therefore, even if kids and pets stand on it, the pool safety cover should remain in place.

Putting the cover on or taking it off can take anywhere from five to 15 minutes, depending on the size of your pool.

Pool Safety Nets

Pool safety nets are similarly to pool safety covers except they are a net material instead of solid. These lightweight nets are installed the same way as a pool safety net. Typically, it doesn’t take more than ten minutes to put the cover on the pool or take it off.

Why Choose a Removable Pool Fence

With pricing fairly close across all types of barrier, we prefer the fence because it is safer and provides a secure gate as another barrier made to keep kids and pet out. Our Pool Guard gates are self-closing and self-latching, which means it will close and lock automatically behind you.

Another reason to select a removable pool fence is convenience. It takes time to remove the net or solid covers.  In contrast, the removable pool fence is easy to remove for adults, but not for children. Plus, it can be easily stores without any entanglement because it comes in easy-to-manage sections.

Then, there is compliance. Pool nets and pool safety covers may not be enough if you operate a daycare or have foster children. Most areas of the country actually require some type of fencing at either four or five feet.

3 Reasons to Install a Removable Pool Fence

Your backyard is your oasis. There’s nothing like enjoying a swim in your pool or a soak in your spa, taking in the best weather here in Murrieta and the surrounding areas like Temecula, Hemet, Menifee and Lake Elsinore. With such stunning views from your yard, it may seem like the last thing you’d want to do is install a removable pool fence.

However, we have three reasons why you should add this important safety feature to your swimming pool:

Install a removable pool fence to keep your children safe.

This past summer, there was an increase in the number of children under the age of 15 who fatally drowned in a U.S. pool or spa. At least 150 children in that age bracket died in U.S. pools and spas just over this summer, according to the USA Swimming Foundation and the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which collaborate in CPSC’s Pool Safely campaign.

Even in our area, there are stories about near drownings and fatal drownings. This drowning story involved a toddler in Winchester, nearby to Murrieta.

No one wants to face something so tragic, especially when drowning is entirely preventable. The solution is a removable pool fence, which uses a gate with automatic locking mechanism that keeps kids away from the swimming pool.

While it’s not a replacement for keeping watch all the time, this type of pool safety device reduces children’s ability to get in the pool. This also makes it an ideal solution if you host swim parties or have other children at your house.

Install a removable pool fence to protect your pets.

Pets can also be at risk around a swimming pool, including dogs that are often good at swimming. The last thing you want to do is worry about your pets’ safety should you leave them in the backyard with a swimming pool.

To keep all your fuzzy family members safe, a heavy-duty removable mesh fence is the best solution. The high-quality fencing materials are made to withstand weight and pressure so even large animals can be blocked from entering a pool area.

Install a removable pool fence to secure your business.

If you run a business from your home like a daycare or home school or even rent out your property or as a vacation unit through a site like Airbnb, then you will need to have a pool safety fence.

Certain counties throughout Southern California, including Riverside County, make it a requirement.  Any business that may involve children and where there is a yard with a pool, spa, or other water feature must have pool safety fencing as well las a pool alarm on doors that lead to these water features.
