November 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #65: Keep Space Between Bottom of Fence and Top of Above Ground Pool

Tip of the Week

There should be minimal space between the bottom of your swimming pool fence and the top of your above ground pool. While you wouldn't want a child to squeeze through, most children are curious and if your child makes an attempt to push through the fence it's advisable to have some wiggle room. They may get caught under a fence for a few minutes, but a few scratches and bruises is more manageable than a child inadvertently falling into the water.
Talk to your swimming pool fence contractor about leaving no more than four inches worth of space between the space and the above ground pool as a safety precaution.
