With the recent health change of my dog (seizures) I can no longer leave him home without a fence around the pool.... I know, I know I never should have - that is water under the bridge and want to get a fence up...

Looking for suggestions or a contact in the OC....Mission Viejo area.

THANK YOU

Yeah, while we're at it.....How about anyone that does block walls around the Corona area. Need a wall around the backyard and pool that's being dug as we speak.

Pool Safety



I always recommend using either vinyl or ornamental aluminum fencing. Every manufacturer I know of has style designed specifically to meet the pool code. Most areas of the country require the fence to be a minimum of 48 inches tall (some areas require 60 inches). There are other requirements such as the distance between the horizontal backers and between the pickets. The gate needs to be self-closing and self-latching. The part of the latch you pull on to open the gate needs to be a minimum of 54 inches from the bottom of the gate (not the ground). Some people might try to tell you the latch needs to be on the inside of the fence, they are flat out wrong.

Below are some links to a couple of articles on this subject:

If you want to save a ton of money, you can go to HD and buy the ornamental black fencing and do it yourself VERY EASILY. Just need a concrete bit, some red heads, and an angle grinder for trimming. Should be around 600-800 to buy the fence and you can do them in a day. We've done several for the foreclosures. Once you decide your starting point every 5' length goes in, in about 25 minutes each section.
