Your pool’s fence is an essential piece of your house. A pool fence can add a sense of refinement, accentuate other outdoor details, and really add a lot of value to your home. However, the primary purpose of a pool fence is safety, and for good reason. Pools are dangerous and every year a number of adults and children tragically die in backyard pools around Australia. Pool fences are mandated by the government, and you are required by law to have one and ensure that it is maintained up to standards. Failure to do so may result in heavy fines whilst also putting lives at risk.  Make sure your pool fence is up to code, safe, reliable, and free from any damage.

If you’re unsure about when you should look to get pool repairs done, here’s a few scenarios.

Visible damage

This seems like a pretty obvious one but oftentimes a damaged pool fence can happen over a long period of time and might go unnoticed. Go outside and have a good look around your fence and look for signs of damage. Common indicators you need repairs will be things like rust, rotting wood, corrosion, bent or warped fence panels and cracked concrete. If you can visibly see signs of damage, it’s a good indicator that there is more than meets the eye. As is common with outdoor structures, rust and rot can go undetected for a long time. Before you go digging or chipping around the fence, give the pool repairman a call.

Changes to surrounding structures

Have you put in a new shed, added an extension or made some changes to your outdoor dining area? There are rules and regulations that determine where your pool fence should sit in relation to other parts of your house. If you haven’t taken these into consideration when changing parts of your house, you might run afoul and be liable to a fine. Get a pool fencer out to make sure you’re up to code and if not, make any changes necessary.

 

Gate or latch not working or broken

The gate into your pool area is a key component of your pool fence. It’s where people gain access to your pool and also keeps people and children out when you don’t want them in the area. The gate and latch are also the weakest point and the most common area to fail due to wear and tear or damage. A gate that is too easy for children to access or doesn’t reliably lock is cause for concern.

 

It’s old

If you’ve just bought a beautiful old house complete with a pool, you probably want to get the pool fence checked over. Old fences themselves might not be up to code and if you’ve no idea about the integrity of a pool fence, it’s best to get a professional in to take a look and make any repairs or perhaps replace the fence entirely.
