If you have a pool, you must also have safety protocols in place. Accidental drowning is responsible for too many child deaths, and a safety pool fence can prevent this. There are several different types out there but do not let the choice overwhelm you. For flexibility and minimal maintenance, the no-holes pool fence is a temporary solution that is ideal for many. Before you decide to buy, there are pros and cons you should consider.
The Pros and Cons Of A No-Holes Fence
- Long-lasting: Chances are you do not use the pool all year, and during colder weather, a pool fence can take a beating. Bad weather can increase rust and corrosion, but not if you take the fence down. No-holes pool fencing can be easily taken down when not in use, which protects it from bad weather and extends its lifespan.
- Flexibility: One of the most important reasons to get a no-holes fence is to prevent accidents. What happens when the kids get older and you no longer need the fence? Or what do renters do if the landlord does not want a fence installed? A temporary no-holes fence allows you to assemble the fence as and when needed, giving you flexibility for any situation.
- Stable deck: Installation of the no-holes fence does not require drilling in the ground, which means your deck will stay secure and stable.
- Cost: Pool maintenance which includes fence installation, is expensive. You can assemble the no-holes fence yourself so you can save money as you don’t need to hire an installation team. All you need is an assembly demonstration from the dealer.
But like everything this might have some drawbacks as well, which you should know.
- Storage space: The fence takes up space so you need ample storage whenever it is not in use. For homes that do not have a lot of storage, this can be an inconvenience.
- Code Adherence: Most cities have codes for pools and fencing, and because the no-holes fence is temporary it may not adhere to these codes. Check with local officials before you buy a no-holes fence.
- Nobody wants a pool fence: usually, people don’t get pool fencing because they love it but to protect their children. It’s a must.
