Important Information About Fence Conforming to Pool Code

We have designed certain styles of our fence to be compliant with BOCA pool code, which is an industry standard that meets the safety requirements for most counties.

For swimming and other child safety gates, most safety standards specify:

a)  Your fence height needs to be between 4’ and 6’ high minimum

b)  Your gate needs to open outwards away from the pool

c)  Latch releasing mechanism to be minimum 54” off the ground.

*The Plain Jane Gate and Slim Jim Gate will require a specialized latching system to meet pool code. Use MagnaLatch Top Pull Hardware (not included) and Captain Morgan Post Caps Only.

Magna Latch Top Pull Code is # MLTPS2BGA.

There are some counties that have their own pool code. It’s important that you confirm pool code requirements with the appropriate authorities in your area before you purchase.

Tips on using a manual post pounder

1. You can either leave the leveling donut off or on during pounding.

In the vast majority of installations, the top of your anchor will not mushroom enough to cause confl­ict when putting the donut back over the anchor. The only potential problem is really hard or dry ground where repeated blows with the pounder are required.

2. Begin to use your level only after your anchor has been pounded about 18 inches into the ground.

Initially you can use other level reference points (house, another fence etc.) to eyeball level from. Step back 3 or 4 feet from your anchor in both directions to do this.

3. Use the handles of your pounder to either push or pull your anchor into alignment.

4. Slightly over compensate when pushing or pulling your anchor back into alignment.

Your anchor will have a tendency to want to revert or spring back to where it was being adjusted from, especially as it penetrates deeper into the ground. Pounding from the same side you want the anchor to travel towards is also recommended.

5. Try not to adjust your anchor into alignment for the last 6-12in. of penetration.

Adjustment at this stage requires the entire anchor shaft to be overly corrected which can enlarge the side of the hole you have just created during penetration. You want the ground to be as tight as possible around your anchor. Remember your anchor can be corrected to level using your leveling donut.



6. Speed things up by using two people on the pounder.

Two people working together in rhythm can really speed things up and lighten the overall burden. Grab a buddy and get into it.
