Katchakid is a pool safety company that offers services and products such as pool safety nets, pool safety fences, and pool covers. The safety products they offer are proven to be some of the most secure safety barrier systems available in the industry.
The Katchakid team believes that pool accidents are preventable. They are passionate about educating pool owners—especially those with small children— on how to ensure that their kiddos stay safe. That’s why Katchakid regularly updates its blog with educational posts about pool safety.
Katchakid’s recent blog post titled “The Path of a Pool Fence—Planning a Pool Fence Installation ” lays out what pool owners need to know when it comes to planning a pool fence installation—and how to make sure the highest possible safety measures are reached.
“Ideally, a fence should be positioned a minimum of 24 inches from the water’s edge. This makes it safer for you and your children or guests to walk around inside the fence while maintaining the pool, or retrieving a person or object from the pool.”
In addition to this useful bit of information, Katchakid lays out further useful tips. For example, the article discusses deck surface requirements and deck material options—concrete, stones, flagstone, mortar, etc.
Katchakid also includes a helpful list of additional considerations pool owners should make when they are planning a route for a pool fence installation. These considerations include: the surface level of the pool; steps on the pool deck; sprinkler, gas, or electrical lines in the fence’s path, or if there is an outdoor cooking area nearby that could potentially get in the way of a safety fence. Oftentimes, such thoughts are overlooked and requires an experienced perspective to make the most practical determinations when customizing a fence route.
