Construct a baby safety fence around the perimeter of your swimming pool.
Be sure that the latch on the gate cannot be reached by small children and that the baby safety fence is at least four feet high around the swimming pool area.
There should be no footholds on the bottom of the fence — making it easy for a child to climb over. The pool fence should form a distinct barrier between your swimming pool area and your outdoor living space.
