5 Benefits of Installing a Pool Safety Fence

A backyard pool affords you your own little slice of paradise—without having to leave the house! Finding fun at home is more important these days than it’s ever been before. You’ve picked out the pool design, decided on fresh or saltwater and started shopping for water toys. What’s next? Installing a pool safety fence has several benefits—most of which can protect the safety of you and your loved ones.

Keeps children safe

When you’re not actively monitoring children poolside, the last thing you want is to risk them wandering too close and falling in. The CDC states that drowning is the leading cause of death for children aged 1 to 14 and actively suggests using a fence around backyard swimming pools as a key prevention tip.

Protects pets

Just like your children may wander too close to the water, your pets, if left unfenced, can do the same. Installing a pool safety fence will keep pets—particularly those who don’t know how to swim—on the right side of the lawn.

Prevents unwanted visitors

A private backyard pool is just that—private—and installing a pool safety fence helps ensure it stays that way. Keep out unwanted intruders, whether it be of the wildlife or human variety, with a professional fence installation.

Adds design aesthetic

Not only is a pool safety fence functional—it’s adds a touch of elegance and class! With a variety of styles and materials available, any backyard fence adds visual interest, but a fence around your pool gives it that added aesthetic upgrade.

Gives you peace of mind

When you’re not home, you don’t want to have to worry or think about your pool being a potential hazard. Installing a pool safety fence provides you the peace of mind of knowing that your property is secure—in more ways than one.


If you’ve already decided on a pool, the next step is to consider installing a pool safety fence! One note of caution—do your research on the laws in your local area. In most cases, a pool fence is required by law, local ordinances and/or insurance companies. As the homeowner, you (rather than Turner Fence) should be aware of these local regulations!
