If you are in Las Vegas, a pool is a perfect spot to relax and have family fun. It is also a great way to keep cool during those summer months. A lot of responsibility comes with the fun and pool safety should be a top priority. Having a pool fence is one of the best ways to keep your loved ones safe. There are many pool fence styles out there to choose from but do not let this overwhelm you. The no-holes pool fence is growing in popularity thanks to the reduced amount of maintenance they require. Before you decide to get a no-holes fence, here are some pros and cons to consider.
Pros and Cons of No Holes Pool Fence
- Durability: Unless you are holding parties all year round and have a heated pool, you likely won’t be using your pool during the winter. Fences that are irremovable can be worn down by colder weather, reducing their lifespan. A no-holes fence can be removed easily as needed, so you can protect it from rust and wear, significantly extending the life of the fence.
- Flexibility: Preventing accidents is the number one reason to have a pool fence. A no-holes fence is one of the best ways to do this. A removable fence can be removed when the children are not around or when they are older. These fences are sturdy and reliable and can be stored away as needed. They are also a good option for renters who may not have landlord permission to erect a permanent fence.
- Stability: No drilling is required for the installation of these fences. This means the deck will remain stable at all times.
- Cost: Pool maintenance is not cheap and this includes fence installation and maintenance too. Installation costs are reduced with no-holes fencing because they can be simply assembled without the use of professional support. You will also not need to bring in experts to help fix or repair the fence. All you need is a demonstration from the dealer on how to assemble the fence and you are good to go.
- Storage: When this fence is not in use, you will need storage space to accommodate it. If space is limited, this can be a problem.
- Codes: Most cities have pool safety codes and regulations so you need to check with them about your fence. Because the no-holes fence is not a permanent fence, it does not adhere to all the codes. So check, before you buy.
- Obstructed View: The no-holes fence does block your view of the pool, which many consider being an eye-sore. Permanent pool fences have options that do not do this which may be preferred.
- Cumbersome: While you can assemble the fence by yourself, it can be time-consuming and cumbersome. The same applies to taking the fence down.
