Pools can be an attractive addition to any home�s backyard. It adds activity value and aesthetic appeal to what could otherwise be an overwhelmingly large yard. And in dry or hot areas of the country, it�s a great way too cool off.
But pools can also be a safety hazard for children and pets. How do you enjoy your aquatic investment safely? Consider adding a pool fence � you�d be surprised how a pool fencing can help encourage homebuyers to decide to buy your home fast!
Pool Fences Can Save Lives
The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention Statistics have complied data that indicates that about 1,000 young children drown in swimming pools every year. And experts in the pool and spa industry have estimated that 70 percent of all pool drowning incidents could be avoided with a fence around the pool.
In Many Places, It�s the Law
In many states and cities around the country, swimming pools are required to have a fence that surrounds the pool and pool deck area. These requirements are for both the safety of the family, as well as neighbors, pets, and visitors. State requirements vary, but can be summed up quite simply:
- Cannot be knocked over by small children or animals
- Resistant to climbing efforts
- Secure enough to prevent children from unlocking fence gates once locked
Among many other groups, having a fence around your swimming pool is highly recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Spa and Pool Institute and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Improved House Value
Many homebuyers are aware of the dangers and requirements of owning a swimming pool. Some homebuyers may be turned off by homes that do not already have the appropriate security measures in place. Pool fences don�t have to be an eye-sore either � fences now come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes to compliment your home�s existing landscaping and outdoor d�cor.
