Your gonna need to put a fence around it.

Electrified razor wire sound about right??


Just make sure you use a GFI on it, wouldn't want any electrical accidents! (Of course, this is a joke).
Contact your insurance company and see what they require.

We generally recommend privacy, chain link or pipe and no climb for pools. Hard to climb, keeps out critters and leaves.

If in a city limits or HOA area you will probably be subject to specs. Typically at Least 4 ' tall , no more than 4 " spacing on pickets, and self closing, self latching gates. Privacy fence will have to be built (pretty side out) or with the horizontal runners to the pool side.
If it ain't tight , It ain't right.

Mine attracted the wife's relatives and they are still coming. You can't win that argument.

We had a fence around ours. Everything wants to get in it and I didn’t want to walk out one morning to find a cow in it.
Also go salt water.
