Installing a pool fence in your Contra Costa home is one of the most important things you can do as a homeowner with a swimming pool. Owning a pool creates a serious drowning risk which is even more dangerous if your pool is not protected by a safety barrier. Even if you don’t have young children living in your home, you need to have a pool safety fence installed around your pool. Call (916) 295-7651 today to get your FREE estimate.
Research from the CDC has found that 77% of pool deaths involve children under the age of 5. Additionally, 74% of fatal pool accidents occurred at residential locations making a pool one of the most dangerous aspects of your home. Even if you believe you can keep a watchful eye on your children at all times, consider the fact that most cases of home pool drowning and near-drowning occur while parents were around the house or the pool area. This is why installing a Life Saver child pool safety fence is the best thing a homeowner in Contra Costa can do to protect children from the risk of drowning.
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. Pool fencing 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 key lockable device, a pool safety cover that meets all the requirements of ASTM standard F1346-91 or alarms on the swimming pool and 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 pool safety 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.

“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.
