In fact, according to Consumer Products Safety Commission, 300 children under the age of five drown each year in swimming pools. A secure fence with a gate can help prevent these tragic accidents. Even if you don’t have children, pool fencing is still important to protect kids who are visiting your home.
The state of Arizona requires a swimming pool fence if there are children under the age of six living in the residence. The fence must be at least five-feet high and include a self-closing and latching gate. In addition, many Arizona counties and cities also have their own laws regarding swimming pool fencing. You will need to check with your city to determine what else you need to do to be in compliance with local laws.
