  • General

    • How do I find the right safety solution for my pool?

      Each home and family has unique needs, which is why it is important to meet with a qualified professional to determine which pool safety solution is best for you. Factors to consider include the size and layout of the pool and your budget. Nathan’s Pool Fence is happy to help you decide whether a pool net, cover, or fence is right for you.

  • Pools Nets

    • Are pool safety nets safe?
      Pool safety nets provide a reliable barrier against your pool and small children or pets. The holes in the nets are small enough to keep them afloat and prevent them from descending into the water, should they fall into the pool.
    • What are the benefits of pool safety nets?

      Many homeowners opt to install pool nets because they provide many great benefits. These include:

      • They are cost-effective
      • They are easily customized
      • They are simple to put on and take off by yourself
      • They deliver an unobstructed view of your pool or spa
      • They are highly durable and weather resistant
      • They meet safety codes
      • They are fade-, shrink-, and deterioration-resistant

      No matter the size or shape of your pool, a net can be customized to perfectly fit it.

    • When should I use my pool net?

      It is incredibly important that you remained diligent with your pool net. Your pool net should be completely in place any time your pool is not in use. This is the best way to prevent drowning accidents from occurring. Even if your kids are in bed or distracted by other activities, you want to make sure your pool is completely secure.

    • How long do pool nets last?

      When made with quality materials and handled carefully over the years, pool nets can last between 10 and 15 years.

    • Do pool nets interfere with pool maintenance?
      Pool maintenance is hardly affected by a net. While the net will need to be removed during the skimming process, it can often remain in place while vacuuming or performing chemical treatments.
  • Pool Covers

    • What are the different types of pool covers?

      There are a variety of types of pool covers. Determining which pool cover is right for your property depends on a number of factors, including the size and shape of your pool, your budget, and how you want your cover to look.

      Some of the most common types of pool covers include:

      • Automatic pool covers
      • Safety mesh pool covers
      • Solar pool covers
      • Water bag covers
      • Solid pool covers
      • Winter pool covers
    • What are the benefits of a pool cover?

      Pool covers are extremely beneficial. Some of the greatest advantages of a pool cover include:

      • Reduces water evaporation
      • Minimizes cleaning time
      • Ensures a more consistent water level
      • Reduces the pool’s chemical consumption
      • Helps the pool retain heat
      • Keeps debris out of the pool
      • Prevents small children and pets from falling into the water
    • Can I walk on my pool cover?

      While our pool covers are designed to withstand thousands of pounds of pressure, they are not designed to be walked on. Walking on your pool cover will cause wear and tear over time, likely jeopardizing its integrity and reducing its lifespan.

    • What is the lifespan of a pool cover?

      On average, pool covers last between 5 and 10 years, but our covers at Nathan’s Pool Fence often last up to 15 years. The lifespan of your cover depends on a number of factors, including maintenance, climate conditions, and frequency of use.

  • Pool Fences

    • What are the different types of pool fencing?

      When selecting a fence for your pool, you have a variety of options to choose from.

      The most common types of pool fencing include:

      • Wrought iron
      • Glass
      • Chain link
      • Removable mesh
      • Wood
    • What type of pool fencing is the best?
      Removable mesh pool fencing is specially designed to meet the top safety recommendations for pool fencing, making it one of the best types of pool fencing. The mesh material is climb-resistant, making it extremely effective at keeping small children out of the pool area.
    • What are the benefits of mesh pool fences?

      Homeowners choose to install mesh pool fencing because of the many benefits it provides.

      These include:

      • It provides a clear view of your pool or spa
      • It is easily installed
      • It has holes and gaps that are too small for children to get a grip
      • It is extremely durable and long-lasting
      • It is fade- and stretch-resistant
      • It can be removed in a matter of minutes when it’s not needed
      • It is affordable
    • Do your pool fences have reliable gates?
      Our pool fences are equipped with state-of-the-art gates that have self-locking mechanisms. Even if you are in a rush or have your hands full, your gate will automatically lock automatically once it is closed. This increases the safety and security of your pool or spa.
    • How do I take care of my pool fence?
      Taking care of your pool fence is the best way to ensure longevity. We recommend using a mild soap, a bucket of water, and a soft bristle brush to gently clean your removable mesh fence.
