Some dogs, even cats, love swimming; and to keep both pets and children safe while swimming in the summer, it's best to fence in pool areas. The best type of fence will be made of welded wire construction.
Welded Wire Fence is made from a strong 14 gauge galvanized steel that is wrapped in PVC for added protection. This type of fence is used not only for pools, but to secure large dogs in yards and to keep out wildlife including deer, coyotes and other chewing animals. This metal fence type will last 20-30 years outside.
Before purchasing weld wire fence, it's best to check with state's pool codes to see if the fence will meet pool code.
