How Do You Install A Swimming Pool Fence?
A swimming pool fence doesn’t just add beauty to the backyard–it also adds safety. Every summer, we hear of tragic drowning deaths that could have been prevented. Fortunately, pool fences are relatively easy to install. Use a spool of thick twine or a garden hose, and arrange it on your deck where you would eventually like to build your pool fence. Make sure it is at least 2 feet from the edge of your swimming pool. Map out where you want the gate on your pool fence to be. Most gates are about 3- to 6-feet wide. The entryway usually opens onto the pool stairs. Draw the twine or garden hose taut. Measure its length. This is approximately how much fencing you will need to purchase. Find a big piece of thick cardboard which is at least 42 inches long. Cut out two small holes 36 inches apart. The distance between holes signifies the distance between fence poles. Cut out another hole only 2 1/2 inches from one of the 36-inch holes. This is to signify the distance between fence sections. Yo
