Are you a resident of Walnut Creek who is interested in installing a pool or has already a pool in your yard? If you are, we recommend installing a pool fence especially if you have little ones at home. A pool safety fence is one of the most important layers of protection to ward against drowning. It will keep your children, family members, and even pets safe from the dangers of a swimming pool. Even if you believe you are vigilant and cautious about watching your children in the water, you still need a pool barrier. Did you know? Drownings tend to be quick and silent which means every family is at risk if their pool isn’t protected.
It’s also important to keep in mind that if you are living in Walnut Creek which is located in Contra Costa County, you are also required to have a pool safety 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. We recommend installing a mesh pool 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 key lockable device. You can also install a pool safety cover that meets all the requirements of ASTM standard F1346-91 and install alarms to 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.
In addition to installing a child pool safety fence, parents should also consider implementing the multiple layers of protection in your home to make it even safer. This includes:
- Door and pool alarms
- Pool safety cover
- Teach children water survival skills
- Provide children with swimming lessons
- Maintain constant supervision of children
- Ensure all caregivers are trained to perform CPR

Life Saver Pool Fence Helps Prevent Drownings

“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.
