There are several factors to consider if you would like to use a chain link fence around the perimeter of your swimming pool. They include, but are not limited to:
-The fence should be taller than four feet.
-The openings in the fence should not span more than 1-3/4 inches to discourage children from being able to climb the fence.
The pool fence gate should have a lock on it at all times, with the key stored in a safe, secure place (preferably one not reachable by children).
Both the pool owner and pool fencing contractor should maintain it regularly.
