Pools offer privacy for families

Vinyl fencing might be a consideration for pool area

April 18, 2001

These days, privacy is hard to come by.

Whether you're inside being bombarded with calls from telemarketers, or outside by the pool avoiding inquisitive stares from your neighbors, finding some high-quality, private time has become harder than ever.

This, and other outdoor intrusions have thousands of pool owners saying, "Please, fence me in."

And the fences of today not only give you pool-side privacy, but offer other advantages for family and friends as well.

A fence acts as a deterrent because the adage "out of sight, out of mind" is often the key to keeping mischief-makers out of your property.

You are free to enjoy your pool without the distractions from outside or without distracting your neighbors.

Pool owners can choose a design and color that will complement their home, or create an entirely new look to set their backyard escape away from the busyness of the household.

Vinyl fencing is an appealing investment for your pool area because it is virtually maintenance-free. The fences are guaranteed not to chip, peel, fade or rot, so they are long-lasting and durable. Plus, there are no sharp edges, or protruding screws and nails that could cause injury.

In many towns and cities, there are specific regulations that must be adhered to when a fence is to surround a pool. Generally, these regulations define the height as well as the rail and picket spacing to assure maximum protection.
