The gap from the ground cannot exceed 2 inches and the space between the bars of the fence cannot exceed 4 inches. At Hulme Fence, we are completely aware of all pool fence codes and have much experience with the topic. We carry a massive variety of aluminum fences and vinyl fences that fit this code to keep your family safe and look great in any backyard.

Aluminum pool-code fencing in Massachusetts

Aluminum
Pool Fencing

With its highly secure design, aluminum is the perfect material to make a pool fence. It is versatile, but can easily be adjusted to fit any landscape. It is also much more affordable than wood or wrought iron, and unlike these two, aluminum will not rust and it not vulnerable to corrosion. We have many different styles, colors, and textures of aluminum pool fencing that provide safety and security for your family.

Wood pool fencing in Massachusetts

Wood
Pool Fencing

Wood fencing can add a warm natural feel to your Massachusetts property. It is used for pools, privacy or to define property lines. Wood pool fencing comes in a wide variety of styles from picket fence to stockade, board fence and lattice top. It is available in three grades of white cedar, as well as spruce. Wood pool fencing needs to be carefully maintained or it will warp, crack and fade.

Vinyl pool code fencing in Massachusetts

Vinyl
Pool Fencing

Vinyl pool fencing is a very popular solution across Massachusetts. Being known for its privacy features, vinyl pool fencing is the perfect material if you want your pool to become a secluded paradise. Since the vinyl fence posts are typically closer together than alternative fencing options, they give you more privacy than others. Alongside this, your vinyl pool fence will not blister, peel, corrode or rot, making it one of the best, low-maintenance materials out there.

Typical Requirements of Massachusetts Pool Fencing

All pools in Massachusetts must be enclosed in a protective barrier (fence) at least four feet high. All gates must have a locking device, must open outward away from the swimming pool and must be self-closing. The lock needs to be at least four feet from the ground so it cannot be reached by small children. If there is a back door to your house that opens into the swimming pool enclosure area, state law requires an alarm on that door. If someone suffers a personal injury or drowning in a residential pool that was not properly fenced in, the homeowner can be liable for those injuries.


aluminum and vinyl pool fencing requirements in Massachusetts
  • A minimum of 4-feet high (measured on the outer side) is the norm, although a 5-foot pool fence offers more secure protection.

  • When your house serves as the pool fence's fourth wall. Equip any door and window leading directly from the house to the pool with an alarm and/or install a pool cover.

  • Under fence clearance should be 4 inches max (2 inches on a non-solid surface such as gravel) to prevent a small child climbing underneath.

  • Pool pumps, planters and other large fixed objects that a child could climb on must be kept away from the fence's exterior. The outer side of the pool fence should not offer any handholds or footholds. Follow current recommendations regarding allowable measurements for openings and spacing of pool fencing components.

  • Pool fence materials are not specified by code. Popular types are vinyl fences, aluminum fences, glass, wood and steel. Movable mesh pool fencing is convenient, but be aware that specs for clearance, etc. may differ.

  • Ensure that all pool gates are self-closing and self-latching.

  • Any pool deeper than 18 inches is required to have a pool fence.

How do I take care of my new pool fence?

Low maintenance is at an all-time low with our fences! Our pool fences only need to be sprayed down with a hose once bi-annually. If debris like dirt or grass clippings have accumulated, just wipe with a soapy sponge and rinse. And that's it!

Is there a law in Massachusetts that you have to have a fence around the pool?

Swimming pools that are in ground, completely or partially, must be enclosed by a fence. Outdoor spas and hot tubs have to be equipped with either a fence or a cover in most jurisdictions, according to how deep the water is. Portable pools are usually not legally required to have a fence.

Will your fencing meet local pool codes?

Most of our pool fence styles will meet local codes; however, there are some exceptions. Keep in mind that nearly all the privacy fence styles meet the standards, as well.

How tall does a fence need to be around a pool?

A fence completely surrounding the pool is better than one with the house serving as the fourth side. Fences should be a minimum of 4 feet high, although fences 5 feet or higher are preferable. If the home serves as one side of the barrier, install door alarms on all doors leading to the pool area.

Does insurance require a fence around a pool?

Many insurance companies will require a pool fence in order to get coverage. Several states have fence requirements that say the minimum fence height needs to be at least four feet above the pool structure or four feet above the water level of a filled pool.

Can I use my boundary fence as a pool fence?

While many types of barriers can be considered a fence, Massachusetts state legislature clearly defines what they consider to be a fence. In the state of Massachusetts, a fence is a barrier at least "four feet high, in good repair, constructed of rails, timber, boards, iron or stone."

What options are available with a pool fence?
