At best, having inadequate pool fence installation is a violation of the law. At worst, it can mean the death of a child or pet. Clearly, it’s not worth the risk.

Once installed, pool fencing needs little maintenance. It's a good idea to keep it clean and free from cobwebs and you'll occasionally want to test it to make sure it's still secure.
The average cost of pool fence installation on Airtasker is $240, however this can range from $118 to $482 depending on the size of the job.
