Welcome to Safety Pools Experts! We’re here to help ensure that you and your family enjoy your pool for many years without the worry of unwanted pests, pets or children accidentally entering to pool area unsupervised. Drowning is fast; and silent. As parents and active members of the Tampa Bay community, we started Safety Pool Experts to help prevent unwanted accidents and tragedies. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) From 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States. This equals about ten accidental drowning deaths per day. We manufacture and install the highest quality pool and safety fences available to ensure that your yard, above-ground or in-ground pool, dock or slip is properly secured. Do I NEED a Pool Fence? Yes, if you own or rent a pool home in Florida, then by law, you must have a pool fence. While there is no federal pool fence law in place, several states including Florida have their own individual pool fence laws. Florida largely adheres to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Guidelines for Pool Barriers. The I.C.C. pool safety standards specify that at a minimum 1. The fence must be a minimum of 48" tall (or taller, depending on distance between horizontal rails). 2. The middle horizontal rail must be at least 45" above the bottom horizontal rail (to prevent using the horizontal rails as a kind of ladder for climbing). 3. The spacing between pickets must be less than 4". 4. If space between pickets is less than 1 3/4'', rule #2 does not apply and fence does not have to be taller than 48'' (because the tighter picket spacing has made climbing much more difficult). 5. The space between the bottom horizontal rail and the ground must be less than 2". 6. The gate(s) must be self-closing and self-latching. 7. The gate(s) need to open out (away from the pool area). 8. The opening mechanism of the latch must be at least 54" above grade (ground level). While this may sound complicated, our pool fences provide a simple, affordable and SAFE solution to securing your pool area . We would love to discuss your family’s safety with you and provide you with the best possible pool fence or barrier to ensure their well-being, and those of your neighbors, and guests.
