What are the advantages of a Removable Swimming Pool Safety Fence?
Removable is the keyword. 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 special occasion around your pool area. The pool fence can be rolled up for compact storage until you can put it back up. Putting the fence back up is just as easy. Insert the poles into the deck holes and connect the sections with the latches that are attached to each end. It’s that simple!
How does a Removable Swimming Pool Safety Fence compare to pool nets and pool covers?
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 every time you want to enter the pool. Then, to keep your pool safe, it must be promptly replaced when you finish your swim. This can be highly inconvenient, especially in the summer months when you might want to use your pool daily. We have gone on numerous pool fence estimate requests where the pool owner first purchased a pool net or pool cover. Still, it is generally clumped together in a pile on the side of the pool due to the difficulty of taking it off and replacing 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 leave 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? A net or cover might be an excellent option if your answer is yes. If you hesitated for even a second or your answer is no, you might want to consider a pool fence where these steps are unnecessary.
How long does a Removable Pool Safety Fence last?
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 with 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 regular use. Plus, our Removable Pool Safety Fence comes with a Lifetime Warranty that will protect you against any material or installation defects.
Will a Removable Swimming Pool Safety Fence satisfy the regulatory agency requirements in my area?
Each Aquaguard swimming pool safety fence is 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.

What sleeves does AquaGuard utilize for installation?
Aquaguard’s easy-grip plastic sleeves are inserted into the holes of the deck. They maintain the integrity of the concrete and protect the finish on the poles. They are designed for easy removal and re-insertion of your pool fence. The unique ridges on our sleeves help hold the sleeve in a while pulling out your pole and are specially designed to fit into our ½” stainless steel rods.
What caps does AquaGuard utilize for installation?
Every ground sleeve comes with a ground cap. The caps are used for those times, perhaps during a party, when you don’t want to have the fence up. Simply insert a ground cap into the sleeve to add to the overall aesthetics of your pool deck.
Will a removable Pool Safety Fence affect my access and use of the pool?
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.
Will holes have to be drilled into my deck for the installation of my pool fencing?
Will a removable Swimming Pool Safety Fence negatively affect the aesthetic appeal of my pool area?
The Aquaguard Pool Fence is virtually transparent, so you can still enjoy your pool’s ambiance and original beauty. Customers often tell us that they think it has 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.
Will a removable Swimming Pool Safety Fence work with my pool configuration?
Aquaguard Swimming Pool Safety Fences are entirely customizable to accommodate almost all situations. Installing the pool fence around irregular shapes or over various 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.
What poles does AquaGuard utilize for installation?
Our fence poles are one of the significant features that set us apart from other fencing companies. Rather than having the full 1-inch hole (the diameter of the pole) drilled into your deck, we have devised an innovative way to cut the diameter in half. The outside layer of our pole is a durable baked-on TGIC powder coat finish aluminum, followed by a PVC insert spanning approximately halfway up the pole and finished with a ½” stainless steel rod that goes in the ground.
The most critical part of any child safety fence pole is where the pole meets the ground. Any force exerted on the pole will have the most impact. You can rest assured you have the most formidable pool fence around because, at that point, aluminum, PVC, and a ½” of solid stainless steel, are the most potent combination available. Our poles can withstand 200 lbs. of pressure. The pole design also means smaller holes and less of a scar on the face of your pool deck. Be sure your pool fence comes with ½” stainless steel rods.
What mesh and border does AquaGuard utilize for installation?
Aquaguard’s pool fences are constructed with Textilene® polyester mesh fabric utilizing a mildew-resistant, UV-resistant polyvinyl coating that provides years of use in the harshest sunlight and the most extreme winter. It’s woven with a continuous basket weave that boasts an incredible tensile strength rating of 270 lbs. per inch making it impossible to rip under regular use. The mesh comes in black or brown and is bordered on all four sides by a reinforced vinyl material with a rating of 387 lbs. The border can be considered the most critical part of the pool fence. All border is QuadStitched with the most vital marine thread, allowing for years of abuse from direct sunlight and the elements. Be sure your pool fence is QuadStiched.

Browse our numerous features that make our pool fencing the best choice in the industry
Angled Raised Panels
Many of our customers have backyards that include changes in the elevation of the deck area. The problem with an elevation change is that a child may be able to climb up onto a higher elevation and over the pool fence. Our unique angled raised panels help address this challenge while simultaneously providing safety and an aesthetically appealing transition for these special situations.
Self Closing Gates
We offer a completely removable, self-closing, self-locking pool gate. Our gates use the industry-leading Magna Latch and Tru-Clos hinges to protect your children from entering the pool area without an adult. Our Aquaguard pool gates are approved by the ASTM and satisfy your area’s local and state codes. Each pool fencing gate also comes with a key-locking option for added security.
While we recommend having your pool fence go completely around your swimming pool to create a full enclosure, we understand that sometimes this is not possible. We can customize your fencing design to end at a wall or other surface. This can provide a more economical approach when less footage is used while still offering a safe pool barrier for your family.
Stairs & Curved Edges
We can follow the contour of your pool with curved edges or shoot straight across to a house or wall. A poorly installed fence that goes up stairs will have poles that are not appropriately aligned, creating a messy look and waves in the mesh. Our team ensures these sections are installed with the same level of quality as the rest.

"AguaGuard Pool Fences - thank you for the great job you did on our pool fence. We couldn’t be happier with the results. You have given our family peace of mind, which as a mom, is priceless!
– Cara, Scripps Ranch
“I was really impressed with the whole experience. AquaGuard called me back promptly and were reliable to reach through the whole project. When they gave me a quote, they didn’t come back and add other “fluff” to it. Not only was the fence safe, but it looks really good too! I felt like AguaGuard wasn’t just doing a job, I felt like they actually cared about how my fence would look!"
