Temporary and Removable Swimming Pool Fencing

Temporary and Removable Swimming Pool Fencing
by Rob Cox November 06, 2014

Temporary pool fencing ain't what it used to be. It used to be that you can get it in any color, as long as that was galvanized gray, 1-3/4" steel chain link fence, with big chunky concrete blocks. You know the type, they are still in use at any construction site. But did you know that you can rent temporary pool fencing in a variety of attractive styles and colors? Yep, it ain't like it used to be.

Removable pool fencing is used during pool construction, required to prevent access to a pool during the final stages of pool construction, and before the finished pool fence is constructed. A temporary pool fence can usually stay in place for only a short (temporary) time after the pool construction is finished, and must be replaced with the required barrier or enclosure, or permanent pool fence.

Temporary pool fencing for pools can also be used while a home is vacant, or when a home is available for sale, with the pool open, but no one at home to watch the pool.

Temporary pool fences can be used to cordone off the pool, when a pool is drained or empty, to prevent falls into the deep end.

Removable pool fence can be used for parties or events, where the pool is closed and off-limits. Fast and easy to set up and remove.

Temporary pool barriers are used by parents to keep a backyard pool or vacation home pool safe for young non-swimming children.


To satisfy a temporary pool barrier requirement, for construction or renovation, or to keep the pool as safe as possible, look online for fence rental companies near you. For a longer term pool barrier solution, look at our GLI removable pool fence. At only $8.50 per foot, you can own your own removable fence, at less than what others pay for a months' rental! Easy to put up and easy to take down. GLI 10' removable pool fence sections come with slim deck sleeves, or pole receivers, for a more finished appearance in any wood or concrete deck. Can also be used with umbrella stands or other temporary fence connector post, or can be installed in pipes for fence sections that run across grassy areas.

I'll bet you didn't know there was so many uses for temporary and removable pool fences!
