Do I need a fence around my pool?

Yes. For an in-ground pool, a 4-foot fence is required. It must have a self closing and self latching gate. Above ground pools also require a 4-foot fence if any portion of the pool wall is less than 4-feet to the ground. Above ground pools also need self closing self latching gates on decks attached to the pool OR if a ladder is used, it must be able to be locked from use. Example: the above ground pool is built into the side of the hill slightly. The distance from the ground to the top rail of the pool on that side is 2 feet. A fence would be required.
