Portland, ME pool owners love to take advantage of swimming in their pools, so they can cool off, during the warm summer months. Parents with small children understand the importance of having a pool fence and not just because it is the law.
Swimming pool drownings are known as the 2nd leading cause of death among children ages 1-4, according to the CDC.
The residential and commercial pool safety regulations in Portland Maine are clear cut. In order to ensure the safety of your property, you must install a pool fence.
The local government also requires permits if your fence will be over 7 feet in height.
Drivers need to be able to see other vehicles on the road. In order to accomplish this, many cities have restrictions in place that prevent fences from obscuring a driver’s view of cars coming from both directions at any given intersection on corners with lots. One such restriction is ensuring there are no obstacles within 25 feet of an intersection. Therefore, your fence should not exceed 3 and ½-feet high.
For backyard pools all fences must be a minimum of 3 ft tall.
