I am almost done with framing the side pool deck which is roughly a quarter way around the pool and is an extension to my existing attached to the house deck.
So i know codes vary state to state but a general code is 48" barrier around an above ground pool. Normally the pool itself will be the barrier, but things change when you add a deck.
I am trying to understand the 48" rule for the railing.
1) Does the 48" start from the ground, or from the new deck floor?
I don't think i have ever seen a 48" deck railing before.
2) Does just the gate have to be 48"?
I rather get help here before asking the inspector, can anyone explain this or have pics to help me?
I have googled it and i come up with what i already know.
