Top Pool Fence Installation related questions
What are the legal requirements for pool fencing in Australia?
Legal requirements for pool fencing change from state to state, but there are some similarities across the country. All pool fencing must be at least 120cm high, have a gap no bigger than 10cm at the bottom, the gate must self-close (and open outwards) and the latching device for the gate must be at least 150cm off the ground.
Do I need a building permit for a pool fence?
Yes, you need to get a permit to build a new pool fence. Many contractors can help you with this documentation, but make sure you speak to them about this beforehand so there's no confusion.
Can my pool fence be made of glass?
Yes. Glass is a common material for pool fences and barriers. Obviously, it needs to be of a certain strength to be effective, so make sure your materials have been approved by an appropriate body, such as the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA).
What surfaces can pool fencing be attached to?
Pool fencing can be attached to almost any surface or material, including decks and tiles. If you want to build a fence on grass, you simply need to dig holes to put concrete in and use that as your base.
How much maintenance does pool fencing need?
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.
How much does it cost to install pool fencing?
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.
What do pool fence installers do?
Pool fence installation services include all the necessary tasks to place a pool fence and secure your pool. When you have a pool that is 0.3 metres in depth or more, a pool fence is a mandatory safety feature in most states. This service can get you the pool fence you need and install it in a way that complies with state regulations.
Whether you need someone to do your aluminium pool fence installation, baby pool fence installation or glass pool fence installation, Taskers can provide you with an expertly installed pool fence to keep pets, children and some debris from falling into your pool by accident.
Inspecting the site and taking measurements
Your hired pool fence specialist begins the service by checking the area around the pool. They can take all the necessary measurements to fit your pool fencing the right way, ensure that your pool can be fully enclosed and that the gate is installed at the right spot. Some pool fence installers can remove any obstacles around the pool’s perimeter and worksite upon request.
After your hired pool fence installer has taken all the measurements, they can make preparations for constructing the pool fence. You can have them install any of the popular types of pool fencing on the market, such as aluminium slat fencing, glass pool fencing, and steel fencing. If you don’t have the fencing ready, some Taskers can purchase these for you upon request.
Building the pool fence
Once your pool fencing installer has all the materials, tools and equipment, they proceed to build the fence. Your hired Tasker can build each part of the fence and install them as per the manufacturer’s instructions, and more importantly, in compliance with your state’s safety regulations.
If necessary, Taskers can dig holes in your backyard or on your deck to accommodate the posts. They can place each post and section of your pool fencing in the best spots, ensure that they’re level, then bolt each post down. They can install the gate latches and locks at the prescribed height.
Installing other safety measures
Your hired Tasker can ensure your pool fence’s safety measures work as intended. This can include checking that the gate hinges have the right tension, so they activate the self-closing feature whenever anyone enters or exits. Some Taskers can install other safety measures like build barricades on windows or other potential entry points close to the pool.
It never hurts to be too careful - for added safety, you can also book swimming lessons for the kids or adults like yourself, too.
If your pool fence gets damaged from everyday wear and tear or in the aftermath of a cyclone, you can book Taskers to repair them. They can do simple fixes on steel or aluminium fences, or perform the more complicated work involved in glass pool fencing repairs.
Just be sure to mention what type of pool fencing you have to attract the right Taskers. Don’t forget to hire someone to clean your pool regularly, and why not hire someone to make sure your pool has gorgeous surroundings?
