How safe is your pool fencing? This is a question that has been asked time and time again as, tragically, there are still too many children under the age of five drowning in backyard swimming pools. Therefore, safety is a paramount concern when it comes to pools and spas, and there are strict legal requirements that need to be adhered to when installing pool fencing. Of course, as well as pool fencing, children should always be supervised by an adult whenever they are in or near the pool area.
Since 1991, strict new regulations have been put in place regarding fencing for inground and aboveground pools and spas. 1994 also saw the introduction of legislation that requires pools built before 1991 to be upgraded to provide effective safety barriers. Following are some nation-wide pool fencing requirements. As always, if you are unsure of anything, simply speak to your pool building professional or the local council for advice that is relevant to your situation.
