Removable is the key word. While most pool owners with young children prefer to leave their pool fence up all the time, the entire pool fence and gate can be easily removed in 10 minutes or less. This is especially handy if you are entertaining guests or having any sort of special occasion around your pool area. The pool fence can be rolled up for compact storage until you are ready to put it back up. Putting the fence back up is just as easy. Simply insert the poles into the deck holes and connect the sections to each other with the latches that are attached to each end. It’s that simple!
The primary difference between pool fences and pool nets and covers, is the usability and convenience of each. With a pool net or pool cover, you must first remove the net or cover each and every time you want to enter the pool. Then, in order to keep your pool safe, it must be promptly replaced when you are finished with your swim. This can be extremely inconvenient, especially in the summer months when you might want to use your pool on a daily basis. We have gone on numerous pool fence estimate requests where the pool owner first purchased a pool net or pool cover, but it is generally clumped together in a pile on the side of the pool due to the difficulty of having to take it off and replace it after each pool use. A pool net or cover that isn’t being promptly replaced after the pool use is a HUGE SAFETY ISSUE. How safe is your pool if you end up leaving it in a pile on the side of your pool area?
Ask yourself this question: Are you willing to take the net or cover down each time you swim and promptly replace it each time you are done? If your answer is yes then a net or cover might be a great option for you. If you hesitated for even a second or your answer is no, you might want to consider a pool fence where these steps are not necessary.

When properly cared for, your Aquaguard Removable Pool Fence will provide you with many years of peace of mind. The outside layer of our pole is a durable baked-on TGIC powder coat finished aluminum that will not rust. Aquaguard utilizes a mildew resistant Textilene® polyester mesh fabric that will not shrink, stretch or fade. It is woven with a continuous basket weave that boasts an incredible tensile strength rating of 270 lbs. per inch making it impossible to rip under normal use. Plus, our Removable Pool Safety Fence comes with a Lifetime Warranty that will protect you against any material or installation defects.
An Aquaguard Removable Swimming Pool Safety Fence is perfect for frequent pool use. While small children cannot enter the pool area when the pool fencing is in use, an adult can easily access the area through a self-closing, self-latching, key-lockable gate. If you desire more space for a special occasion, the sections can easily be rolled back or removed for unrestricted us.
Each of our Aquaguard swimming pool safety fences are designed and manufactured to meet and exceed the strictest safety guidelines. Most cities require a four foot high pool fence. However, if you own or operate a daycare, are planning on adopting a child or are becoming a foster parent, you will probably be required to have a five foot high pool fence. For your convenience, Aquaguard Pool Fences manufactures pool fencing in both four foot and five foot models to accommodate your individual pool fencing needs. We also offer a self-closing, self-latching, key-lockable safety gate to satisfy your local requirement. While these are the requirements that we find in almost all jurisdictions, we do leave it up to the customer to guarantee the specific compliance requirements in their area and Aquaguard cannot make a predetermination as to the suitability of its barriers for purposes of satisfying any specific jurisdiction.
The Aquaguard Pool Fence is virtually transparent so that you can still enjoy your pool’s ambiance and its original beauty. In many cases, we have customers tell us that they think it has actually improved the look of their pool area. When a Pool Safety Fence is installed by one of our professional installers, we pride ourselves on our craftsmanship so that you can rest assured that not only does the pool fence look good, but it has been installed to your specifications and follows the contours of your pool to enhance the look of the area.
Yes, it is necessary to drill 5/8 inch holes into your concrete or other deck surface to secure the deck sleeves and support poles. These holes will generally be located every 36 inches, except for in custom areas such as stairs where they might need to be spaced closer together. A professional grade drill bit is used to ensure that the surrounding concrete is not damaged or chipped, and then a plastic sleeve is inserted in the hole. Upon request, our installers can save some of the concrete shavings that come out of each hole when drilled so that if you ever want to fill the holes, you can simply fill them most of the way with new concrete, and then sprinkle your saved concrete shavings on the top to make it look like there was never a hole in your deck. This is yet another way that Aquaguard goes above and beyond to satisfy our customer’s needs. ***Another important thing to note is that most pool fencing companies require a 1 ¼ inch hole be drilled into your deck. We have come up with a way to reduce this size by half through an in innovative steel rod design. See OUR POOL FENCES more information on our poles.
Aquaguard Swimming Pool Safety Fences are completely customizable to accommodate almost all situations. Installing the pool fence around irregular shapes or over a variety of surfaces and elevations is usually no problem. Our installers will work with you to maximize the use of your yard while addressing all of your safety and aesthetic concerns.
