For homeowners in Diablo, California with pools in their backyard, a pool fence is one of the best layers of protection you can have installed in your home. A pool safety barrier functions to protect your children, family members, and even pets from the dangers of accidental drowning. Pool drowning is a serious risk even if you feel you are a vigilant parent. Drowning can occur in the amount of time it takes to respond to a text, and is necessary for any home with a pool.
In addition to needing a pool safety fence for an added sense of security in your home, if you are living in Diablo, CA you are required to have a barrier installed around your pool in order to adhere to local and state requirements.
In the Contra Costa County, all residential swimming pools are required to be protected with at least protective barriers. This includes an enclosure that meets the requirements of Section 115923 and isolates the swimming pool from the home. Life Saver’s removable mesh pool fence meets the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and also has a gate that is self-closing and self-latching and can
accommodate a key lockable device. It is also recommended to install a pool safety cover that meets all the requirements of ASTM standard F1346-91 or install alarms in doors that provide direct access to the pool.
A pool enclosure must have an access gate that opens away from the swimming pool, and is self-closing with a self-latching device placed no lower than 60 inches above the ground. Additionally, 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 free of protrusions or other physical characteristics that would serve as handholds or footholds that could enable a child below the age of five years to climb over.

Pool Safety Resources for Diablo, CA Residents
“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.
