HOW SAFE IS A LIFE SAVER POOL FENCE?

Pool safety experts and lawmakers have recognized Life Saver’s mesh pool fencing as the premium layer of protection against toddler drowning – surpassing pool nets, alarms, and pool covers in terms of safety AND convenience. Life Saver’s fencing is designed with unique life saving features. Because of Life Saver’s mesh construction, there are no hand holds or foot holds a child can use to climb it.

DO YOU OFFER A WARRANTY?

Yes!  We offer a lifetime warranty for every Life Saver Pool Fence component.  As long as you’re the original owner of our safety pool fence, you will not need to worry – we will guarantee a lifetime warranty!

CAN YOU PROVIDE A VIRTUAL ESTIMATE?

Yes, we can and we do many! We just need to make sure that we have a clear view of your home and pool area from Google Earth.

WHAT KIND OF FENCE DO I NEED FOR AN INGROUND POOL?

We recommend a mesh pool fence that is specifically designed to be unclimbable. With an inground pool, you will need a Life Saver Pool Fence that is at least 4 feet high with a self-closing and self-latching pool gate. The fence should isolate the pool from the backyard and it should be the only way a child can access the swimming pool area. In our region, to meet code, we will need to install a 5ft fence. Due to the flexible nature of the material, the top of the fence cannot go below 4ft.

DO YOU OFFER SELF-LATCHING AND SELF-CLOSING GATES?

Yes, self-latching and self-closing functionality is included with every gate. This guarantees your gate will close every single time. Following guidelines from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Drowning Prevention Alliance, and others, we make sure we provide the best quality self-latching, self-closing gates available to swimming pool owners.

WHAT IS THE COST FOR A MESH POOL FENCE?

Knowing your child is safe and that you have peace of mind is priceless. The cost of installing a mesh pool fence will depend on your preferences and is quite affordable when comparing it to the investment you’ve made into building the pool. The height, color, installation surface, number of gates, and any upgrades you want are among the factors that can impact pricing, to name a few.

CAN YOU INSTALL A LIFE SAVER POOL FENCE INTO ANY SURFACE?

Our pool fences can be installed into any substantial surface or earth, so don’t worry!

I HAVE AN ABOVE GROUND POOL, DOES MESH POOL FENCE WORK FOR ABOVE GROUND POOLS?

Yes, it does. We can install our safety pool fence around virtually any type of pool or spa.  Around an above ground pool will work just the same as any other pool. We can install it around the entire pool or install it on a deck that surrounds the above ground pool.

CAN AND HOW DO I REMOVE A POOL SAFETY FENCE FOR FALL/WINTER STORAGE?

If you are looking to remove your pool fence for storage, simply disconnect the latching hardware by squeezing the two poles together where the sections meet to release the tension, then unhook the latch between them. Once all of the latches are disconnected, you can simply pull the pool fence poles from their sleeves and roll the mesh fence up for storage. Our fences are easy to remove in about 10-15 minutes for an adult and they are virtually impossible for a child to remove.

HOW MUCH FENCE IS NEEDED TO ENCLOSE A POOL?

How much pool fencing you need for your Coastal Carolinas pool area depends entirely on the size of your pool and the layout of your backyard patio area. When we arrive at your home, we will determine with accuracy how much of the Life Saver Pool Fence you will need as well as how many gates you need.

CAN THE POOL FENCE STAND UP TO HIGH WINDS?

For normal everyday storms or the rainy season, the fencing stands up very well to high winds. If it is a big hurricane with 90-100 mph sustained winds, we advise taking it down, even though many of our fences will remain in place.

IS IT EASILY REMOVABLE BY MYSELF OR DO I NEED YOU?

Life Saver pool safety fences can easily be taken down by adult homeowners within a matter of 10-15 minutes. At the end of the installation, we always show you how to take fences out and how to put them back up.

HOW LONG IS MY POOL FENCE GOING TO LAST?

Everything we touch as a Lifetime Warranty on it. There are so many pool fences that we installed 20 years ago that still look brand new now!

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING FOR US HOMEOWNERS TO USE TO COVER THE HOLES YOU DRILLED IN CONCRETE?

Yes, we will leave you ground caps to cover the holes. So, if you take the fencing out, you can easily plug the holes. We even have solar lights available to put in the holes!
