Pool Safety Fence


If you are currently reading this, Elite Lawn Sprinklers, Pools & Spas is fairly sure that you are well aware there are more deaths related to drowning in swimming pools for children under the age of 5 (390 deaths in 2014). More than 3,800 children were treated in an emergency room in swimming pool related accidents. This is why your child needs a pool safety fence.



What is a Safety Pool Fence?

Our backyards are beautiful and a great source of family togetherness and fun, but they also can be an ever present drowning danger. When it comes to protecting our children and keeping them safe, nothing can substitute for adult supervision; however we are only human and no one person can be in all places at all times, this is why layers of safety are so vital. A Pool Safety Fence is a top safety choice for any pool owners.

Pool Safety Fence is an attractive, unobtrusive and convenient safety solution that can encircle the entire pool area or be configured between the home and your water feature. The installation of a removable pool safety fence provides a climb resistant, nearly transparent barrier that can either be left in place permanently or be completely or partially removed to accommodate your lifestyle. Pool Safety Fences come in a variety of styles and colors to compliment your backyard. When not in use this fence may be rolled up and stored easily. Your Pool Safety Fence will allow you additional peace of mind and allow your family complete enjoyment of your pool area for years.

Swimming lessons are not enough to protect your young children. Just because your child has had swimming lessons, this doesn’t mean they are “water safe”.  Adult supervision is still critical to the safety of infants and toddlers. For peace of mind contact us today for your Pool Safety Fence.

Fences should be located so as to prohibit permanent structures, equipment or similar objects from being used to climb over the barrier.

The average warranty is approx 5-7 years covering the fence fully except for obvious damage (example: animal or misuse damage). Some companies offer a “lifetime” warranty which not only increases the cost but forces you to pay for a warranty you probably won’t ever use. 

Q: Does Removable Safety Fence meet pool code?

A: When safety fence is a minimum of 48″ in height, it meets most city and county pool code.


When there are children under the age of 5 whom have a pool and/or a body of water accessible, please be aware of the following:

  • Most children HAVE NOT developed a proper fear response to danger
  • Children absolutely are attracted to water!
  • Children have not fully learned right and wrong at this point
  • You can NEVER trust a child’s judgement aged 5 or under!!!

” A safety fence is primarily a preventative measure and DOES NOT in any way replace the absolute need for adult supervision!”
