Residential pools in the state of New Jersey must be enclosed by a fence that is at least five feet tall, as measured on the side farthest from the swimming pool. Any openings in the wall, fence, or barrier must not allow a spherical object four inches in diameter to pass through. Additionally, the barrier must not have any openings, handholds, or footholds accessible from the exterior side of the enclosure than can be used to climb the structure; and it must be at least 20 inches from the edge of the water. The pool gate must open outward from the swimming pool and be self-closing and self-latching. In addition, the gate must either be secured by a padlock or similar device which requires a key, electric opener, or integral combination, or have its latch located a minimum of 54 inches above the ground.
In addition to a pool fence, here other important pool safety measures you should implement in your home include to increase the safety of your family:
- Installing door and door alarms that have audible alarms
- Installing a pool safety cover
