Do I need a fence?

Yes – barriers such as fences and walls are required for pools containing over 24 inches of water. The pool area must be completely contained within these barriers. The specific requirements are as follows:

• Yard must be fenced with at least a 4 ft. fence with a child-proof lock on each gate.

• Any door, within a wall or barrier, with direct access to the pool area must have a child-proof lock.

• Any ladders or steps must be secured or removed to prevent access when not in use
