Importance of Swimming Pool Fencingby Marc W. Owner
If you own a swimming pool, you must understand that the most important responsibility of owning a pool is the fencing of the swimming pool, so animals, children and even adults have no access to the bottom of your pool.
Drowning is a harsh reality for swimming pool owners. The sad news is that it takes many drownings before some individuals decide to install swimming pool fencing. 69% of child drownings occurred when one or both parents were at home and watching their children while 10% occurred while other adults other than parents were in charge of the children's care. For 14% of drowning victims, babysitters were in charge, whereas 7% of their siblings were responsible for their safety. Instead of the majority of most drowning incidents occurring at a public pools, 65% occurred in the family pools, while the other 11% occurred in neighborhoods. The really sad news for everyone is that 70% of the children were seen within 5 minutes before they were missed and found in the swimming pool.
Now, if you take a look at where the children were before they got to the pool, you will understand the importance of installing fencing as well as locking the gates. 46% of the children were seen indoors, of with 15% of these children were in bed.
Of course, drowning is a devastating experience for both families and friends. The answer to this problem, in most cases, is fencing. The best fencing is mesh. You don’t want to put up a fence with bars far enough apart that children or animals can squeeze through or other fencing that can be climbed.
Mesh fencing is created from polyester mesh fabric that offers a mildew resistant polyvinyl coating. This coating will ensure the mesh fencing will be able to handle the bright sunlight and even the harshest winters. The mesh is uninterrupted basket weave that offers a strength rating of 270 pounds per inch. This means that this fencing is not easy to tear or rip and under normal circumstances will last many years. You can find a wide array of colors for your mesh fencing so it will match any décor in your backyard and protect your children or your neighbor's children from entering the pool area without an adult. That is the purpose of the fencing in the first place.
