Thread: Need a safety fence installed around my diving board

    Question Need a safety fence installed around my diving board

    Hi,

    My wife is opening a day care in our home ( San Jose, California ) and we have a pool with a diving board (old style). It seems very difficult to have a fence installed with the diving board in place.

    I was hoping to just have a safety net installed but I guess this is not approved.

    Any idea or suggestions (besides removing the diving board)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Perhaps an autocover would be better? They can be added to existing pools and would close off the entire pool when the day care is open. A bit of an investment, perhaps some would be tax deductible to the Day Care?

    Unless I am missing something you need to fence it in such a way none of the kids can get anywhere near the pool. That should be easy to do.

    If the problem is the flowerbed wall you can cut the fencing up and around it to the wood fence.

    I think you need to talk to the people who will be licensing the daycare and see what they say.
