inflatable blue pools

Postby guest » Thu Jun 01, 2006 7:15 am

Just wondering what everyone is doing with all of the inflatable blue pools out there. If they have a cover on them that is secure do they still need a fence, or is that enough? If there is no cover or fence, are you making them take them down? Everyday, there's a few more popping up, and would like to know what everyone is doing about it.

we have our ordinance that has anything with over 100 square feet of water surface requires a fence with self closing latching gate. helps with human error for leaving cover off or leaving gate open. not fool-proof, but works for us.

Our zoning code requires a four foot high fence with self-closing, latching gates around any pool, tub or spa that has a water depth of 24" or more. A locking cover is not recognized as an equivalent to the fenced enclosure.
Any hard-wired electrical equipment also requires electrical permits and inspections.
