If you are a homeowner with a pool in your backyard, it’s time to install a pool fence in your Alamo, CA home to protect your children and pets from the dangers of accidental drownings. Even the most vigilant parent or caretaker is susceptible to the dangers of an unprotected pool as drowning only takes seconds and is often silent. Drowning poses a serious risk to families with small children, elderly members, and even pets – all of whom have a high risk of accidentally falling in the pool which increases substantially if your pool does not have a protective barrier.
Even if you don’t have children living in your Alamo, California home, you need to have a fence installed around your pool as it is a requirement for homeowners with pools in the state of California.
Alamo is located within Contra Costa County and must abide by county pool fence requirements. These requirements state that all residential swimming pools are required to be protected with at least protective barriers. This includes an enclosure or pool barrier that meets the requirements of Section 115923 and isolates the swimming pool from the home. It is recommended to install a pool safety fence that meets the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) that also has a gate that is self-closing and self-latching, and can accommodate a device lockable with a key. Additionally, a pool safety cover that meets all the requirements of ASTM standard F1346-91 must be used as well as alarms on the swimming pool and doors that provide direct access to the pool.
Furthermore, pool enclosures must also have an access gate that opens away from the swimming pool, and is self-closing with a self-latching pool gate placed no lower than 60 inches above the ground. The fence must be a minimum height of 60 inches with a maximum vertical clearance from the ground to the bottom of the enclosure of two inches. There must not be any gaps or voids that allow the passage of a sphere equal to or greater than four inches in diameter, and the outside surface must be free of protrusions or other physical characteristics that can serve as handholds or footholds that could enable a child under five to climb over.

Why Install A Life Saver Pool Fence?
There are many reasons as to why you should install a Life Saver Pool Fence over the rest, the main reason being it is the safest mesh fence around. Research from the CDC has found that 77% of pool deaths directly involve children under the age of 5. Their research has also found that 74% of fatal pool accidents occurred at residential locations often times when adult supervision was present. These statistics point to the dangers of a pool when proper precautions are not put into place.
Even if you believe you can keep a close eye on your children at all times consider the fact that most cases of home pool drowning and near-drowning occur while one or both parents were home or in the vicinity of the pool.

“We just finished our backyard renovation. Alex came to our house to reinstall our original baby fence he put up 4 years ago. He showed up on time and was able to use our original fence. He did a great job, he even power washed our fence to make it look like brand new. He made sure all the safety features were still good. We are very pleased with his work and would recommend to everybody. The fence is super sturdy, and about 4 feet tall so I feel very comfortable with my kids playing in the backyard. They can’t get passed this fence! Thanks Alex!” – Lara R.
