That depends on local council rules.

I don't know of any hard set rules but common sense tells me that it should be at least 4 feet from the edge of the pool to allow access. The previous is correct because it is always a good idea to consult with you local department of inspections or other governing body. When you build your fence keep in mind that a new national pool code was signed into law in December 2007. It is call The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act of 2007. This act puts the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in charge of the pool laws. They already have several publications on the subject.

How to Look For Pool Fences That are Safe and Pretty?

The main purpose of a pool fence is safety. It is meant to keep out children, animals and people who may try to get into the pool when no one is around. If something happens, you will feel bad and possibly be in trouble for not having a pool fence. One popular type of pool fence that is not only protective but attractive is the removable mesh pool fence. This fence is made to go as close to the pool as possible and will enclose the entire pool. Some fencing goes around the patio and the areas around the pool as well, but this removable mesh fence surrounds only the pool. By doing it this way, it protects anyone from going into the pool. The mesh fence cannot be climbed like a standard fence could be climbed. It is simply a screen, but is made to be very sturdy. The removable mesh pool fence should have a lifetime guaranty. If it does not, it may not be a good fence to buy. This fence will withstand the harshest weather, even in the winter. Since the fence is needed year round to keep everyone out of the pool, this is a very important safety factor. Also the fence has a border on all four sides of a strong vinyl material to keep the fence from sagging. The borders should use the strongest marine thread to last through years of sunlight and inclement weather. Before choosing a mesh pool fence, be sure it has four stitches in the border. The mesh is then mounted on reinforced aluminum poles and has aluminum cove molding strips attached to all of the poles. An optional safety gate is available to go with the removable mesh pool fence. This fence should have a snap safety latch. It is nickel-plated to assure that it will never get rusty. This gate should also come with a lifetime warranty to assure it is the true safety gate. There is also an optional wireless alarm that goes with the gate in case someone is trying to get into the pool area. This mesh pool fence comes in different heights including 3 1/2’, 4’, and 5’. It is probably the safest idea to go with the highest fence.
