Suggest that a good fence 'professionally installed' will demonstrate your
responsible action and intent to prevent unauthorised use which could lead
to liability on your part. If somebody's pet (or worse a child) falls in.
Tragic situation, some years back when two (walking home unsupervised)
children from organised swimming at a local park, wandered into a persons
backyard decided to swim in that pool and drowned. Homeowner was not home
and it was some time before the children were discovered.
Thanks for heads up. Callme municipality and find out that no permit is
required. After fence installation will be complete, they will send somebody
to check (for free) if installation done according to rules and that is it.
I want to point that I already have a fence around my property. It is fence
inside backyard around pool to secure pool from small children.
I can't answer your question, just here to give unsolicited advice:
I don't know what your local codes require, but fencing around the
entire pool is by far the safest set-up when there are children in the
house (or ever visiting the house). Using the house as the "fourth
side" to the fence greatly increases the chance of accidental drowning.
