Nov 10 2014 - Aluminum pool fencing installed also is an important safety measure. Most of the states now require pool fencing around their all pools. Even if the state does not mandate pool fencing the home owners insurance policy probably does. After all, it only takes a few seconds for someone to drown. Most pool side tragedies occur because a child was able to slip out of the house undetected, and unfortunately there was not an aluminum pool fence preventing them from entering the swimming pool area. With having the Aluminum Fence around the pool, you must have the child safety latch (Magna Latch) on all gates leading to the pool. These are equipped with a lock and key for extra safety.
