La Salle County No Longer on the Fence About Pool Fences

Share Article

In order to save on money, La Salle County discarded its requirements for pool fences. Challenger Fence Inc installs pool fences in New Jersey, where the laws still apply.

“A lot of people are going with vinyl fences,” says company owner Alex Miloseski. “They are easy to maintain and come in many designs.

After many months of debate, the La Salle County Board eliminated all of its restrictions. The Illinois county had once required all swimming pools of four feet to be surrounded by a five foot fence. The county-wide regulations have been debated since December, and will affect rural swimming pools, though not municipal pools.

While the vote to lower the mandatory fence height by a foot was voted down 20-6, total elimination of pool fence requirements altogether were brought up for review and was approved by the board in a 21-5 vote. The primary reason for removal was to save money. Other reasoning included that La Salle is Illinois’s second largest county, and that makes it difficult to monitor. The rural residents also felt that they are well isolated and do not require fences to deter neighboring children.

Although certain areas of the country are starting to do away with pool fence laws, New Jersey still has strict codes. The height requirements may vary from town to town, but they are necessary statewide. As summer is fast approaching, now is the time that many people have swimming pools installed into their yards.

Challenger Fence Inc is a professional fence company that can install any type fences around your swimming pool. Their workers are skilled and experienced to know the best fence to fit any yard’s landscape. Most pool fences are aluminum which is perfect to go around a pool because they are rust proof.

“A lot of people are going with vinyl fences,” says company owner Alex Miloseski. “They are easy to maintain and come in many designs. We offer many different styles and can install them around your pool at a reasonable price.”

Another popular type of fence that is waterproof is PVC or vinyl. Challenger Fence stocks many types of vinyl fences, including the Eastern Fence. These come in various designs, such as the very popular Grand Illusion which resembles a wood fence.
