Why Choose Pool Fencing For Your Yard
A fence around your pool can help keep kids (and even other adults) safer
Adding a pool fence is not only a good idea, it is sometimes required by the law. In Kitchener, if you have a pool designed to hold a minimum of 88.9 cm (36 inches) of water, then you are required by law to enclose your pool with a fence that is a minimum of 1.5 m (5 feet) high. According to Kitchener.ca, there are also other regulations you must follow if you have a pool, including:
- All gates/doors that allow access to your pool and the pool area must have a locking device installed. Doors must be kept locked unless there is a responsible adult present and able to supervise (see image to the right for an example of a locking device)
- Backyard pools should be enclosed with an additional fence around all sides of the pool to ensure that there is no direct access to the pool from the house
- There is a permit required and a permit fee for all pools (in-ground, above-ground, and temporary, that can hold 36 inches or more of water) – click here to learn more about this permit
These bylaws are in place to help keep all people safe, especially children who are at a greater risk of drowning (which can occur in as little as 10 seconds) and pool accidents. Unfortunately, drowning is all too common. In 2010 it was reported that drowning was the #1 cause of death in children aged 1-4 – and swimming pools were often the main source of drowning risk.
A pool fence is an important tool to keep your children, your guests, and your pets safe during the summer months when your pool is open, and even during the winter when your pool is empty – falling into an empty pool can cause injury too. See the diagram below for an example of what an additional fence around the pool looks like.
A fence around your backyard is not enough – there should also be a 4-way enclosed pool fence that does
not allow direct access from your house
With summer just around the corner, now is the time to invest in a pool fence – to comply with local bylaws and to ensure everyone in your family is as safe as possible. Continue reading below to learn how Jay Fencing can help you choose safe and private fencing for your backyard.

The Safest Pool Fencing For Your Yard
At Jay Fencing, we have over 30 years of experience working in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Because of that, we understand all of the local bylaws regarding fencing – including pool fencing! We can help you choose the safest fencing for your pool as well as the proper gates you will need to comply with local bylaws.
When you work with us, you don’t have to worry about deciphering the bylaws for your area – we do all the work for you. We will ensure that your fence is in compliance (e.g. at least 5 feet tall, is capable of locking, etc.) We also understand the best types of fencing for your pool.
Chain link fences as well as iron fences are the most common pool fencing options as they are the least obstructive fencing option. That means you will always be able to keep an eye on your pool and ensure that no one has broken through your barriers.

At Jay Fencing, we offer free onsite consultations on all of the jobs we quote on! This will allow you to work directly with us and ask us any questions you may have about your pool fencing options, which types of fences are the safest for families, what types of gates are best to prevent children attempting to break through, and what styles may suit your backyard the best.
We Offer Privacy Fencing Too!
Summertime in Ontario means many backyard hangouts, BBQs, pool parties, and more. Although the fence directly containing your pool should be chain link, iron, or made from other materials that allow you to see through, you likely will want privacy fencing around the perimeter of your yard to ensure privacy during your events or relaxed Saturday afternoons with the family.
The last thing you want during a big family get together or pool party are your neighbours looking in or that passerby walking their dog staring at your happy guests. A privacy fence can not only add privacy but also improve the look of your yard. An attractive wooden or vinyl fence will help make your patio area or your garden look even better!
