Sadly, many children have drowned in Chicago-area pools that were improperly or inadequately fenced. To learn more about the importance of keeping your pool safe with the right fencing, watch this video clip.

Laws differ depending on where your pool is located, but most pool fencing needs to be at least five feet high, with vertical pickets that are about four inches apart. Walk around the pool fence and make sure that there are no climbing obstacles within four feet of the fence. If there is space at the bottom, it should not be more than about two inches high. Furthermore, the fence should have a gate that latches and self closes. Watch this video clip for more tips on planning proper fencing for your Chicago pool.
