The winter months are the perfect time to install a pool fence in your San Diego home. As a homeowner with a pool, you need to be thinking about pool safety and drowning prevention all year long, not just during the warmer months.
While it may seem to make more sense to hold off on installing a pool fence around the time you plan to open your pool for the season, the winter is actually the best time to re-evaluate your yard and pool for potential risks. This is a great time to make any needed adjustments and ensure that by time swimming season rolls around your pool will be ready for your family to safely enjoy.

This is yet another reason why backup protection is an absolute must for any San Diego homeowner who owns a pool.
Furthermore, San Diego pool safety requirements state that In San Diego, a pool fence is required on any pool that was built or remodeled after 2007. California state also has strict codes that must be followed for a pool fence requiring fencing that isolates the pool from the home with a gate that opens away from the pool. The fence must have a latch that is at least 60 inches from the ground with a minimum height of 60 inches, and any gaps in the slats must not be more than 4 inches apart.
