If you live in Cape May County, NJ and have pool in your backyard that is not protected by a safety barrier, it’s time to install a pool fence. Surrounding your swimming pool with a fence is the best way to protect your family from the dangers of an unprotected pool, plus it meets local pool safety regulations.
Homeowners with pools must follow New Jersey state regulations for residential swimming pools as well as local township requirements for their backyards. It is important that homeowners check with their local townships for any additional pool fence regulations they must adhere to.
Generally, 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-locking. 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 safety fence, other important pool safety measures you should implement in your home include:
- Implementing door and door alarms that have audible alarms
- Installing a pool safety cover
- Water safety training
- Swimming lessons for children as soon as they are old enough
- CPR training for all adults
- Constant supervision when children are in the water
While it’s important that you consult your local county office to confirm the pool barrier requirements specific to your city or town, you can rest assured that a Life Saver pool fence will meet all of the requirements for pool safety codes in Cape May County, NJ.
