Complete Surround

The safest way to plan your removable pool fence is to do a complete surround.

To do that, you’ll need to follow the shape of the deck that surrounds your in-ground pool and in-ground spa, if you have one.

Split the Yard

Depending on how your patio and pool are laid out in your backyard, you may not need to completely surround the pool with removable pool fencing.

Instead, if you have a narrow backyard, then you can “split the yard” and run a secondary fence across the yard, from side fence to side fence.

Straight or Curved Removable Pool Fencing?

A straight pool fence is easier and cheaper to install than one that curves in and out, or follows the shape of the pool.

However, in doing so, you may end up sacrificing some internal deck space around the pool. Make sure you have enough space to walk around the pool, sit, or even lounge around it.  When you plan your removable pool fence, it’s important to think about enjoyment as much as security.

Things to Consider 

When you plan your removable pool fence, make sure the fence line is not near raised walls, planter beds,  or trees. These are good examples of the type type things a child could use to climb over the fence.

You will also need to keep in mind how to incorporate slopes in your backyard or other features. These features include things like a patio cover, outdoor kitchen area, or other water features.

You will also want to think about where you’d like to have your gate that makes it convenient for entering and exiting the pool area. On larger removable pool fence projects, it’s even possible to have more than one gate.

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

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.
