As a pool owner, it is likely you want your pool to remain accessible to friends and family only. Having a pool fence and/or railing that can latch and lock, can prevent individuals from accessing your pool without your permission. Preventing unauthorized access not only ensures that your pool is properly maintained, but that the risks of accidents outside of your control are mitigated.

3. Liability and Insurance
