Residential Pool Fence Law in Northern Virginia

Pool Fence LawHave you had a pool installed recently or are you thinking about installing a pool? If so, have you even thought about a pool fence? First of all, it’s the law.

Residential swimming pools in Northern Virginia are subject to Section 421.10.1 BOCA National Building Code. All in-ground, above ground or on ground pools, hot tubs or spas require a pool fence or other barrier measuring at least 48 inches in height, with a 2 inch maximum vertical clearance between ground level and the fence and spacing between vertical planks should not exceed 1-3/4 inches in width. Plus, all gates need to be self-latching and open outward.

Secondly, a pool fence can be the difference between life and death. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children under the age of five. And according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), supervision alone can and does fail. You need a pool fence.
