Do You Need a Fence Around Your Pool in Arizona?

DCS Pool Barriers wrought iron pool fence secures a residential pool area.Many pool owners in Arizona might wonder whether they are legally required to enclose their pool areas with fencing and gates. The short answer to this question is “yes.”

The longer answer, however, can be found in state laws governing pool barriers. Specifically, Arizona law stipulates that any below-ground or above-ground pool (including a spa or hot tub) must be enclosed by a wall, fence or other barrier. These barriers must be at least five feet tall and cannot have any openings more than four inches in diameter. In addition, pool areas must be secured by self-closing gates that open outward from the pool and have self-latching mechanisms located at least 54 inches above the ground. Cities and counties within Arizona may have more stringent regulations, so it’s important to check the laws in your area to ensure that your pool barriers are in compliance.
