We don’t want to dissuade you from this path, but we do encourage that if you do not have any building or installing expertise that you meet with a skilled glass company first– because while you might save some money, it could come back to bite you down the road if you don’t do the job properly.

Just like most goods now the DIY sector is flourishing in glass pool fencing and even though the major hardware distributors can offer to sell direct to the public we would recommend using a dedicated glass pool fence provider. This has many benefits, including the experience which can be divulged from the service you obtained it from. If they know what they are doing then they will be happy to give you some handy tips if you choose to install the glass yourself.

Putting in a pool fence is not your regular DIY job whatsoever, installing glass panels for a glass pool fence, despite what the fixing surface is does require some special tradesman like skills. If you are a tradesman and are very proficient with tools then DIY pool fencing may be for you. This is no job for the feint hearted and we would recommend getting as much advice as possible before you attempt something like this. You may also need to speak with a pool safety fence certifier to make sure that what you intend to install will be compliant. It can be very frustrating to learn the glass pool fence you have installed and shelled out money for will not comply and will have to be moved.

The plan

If you intend to take the DIY Pool Fencing path, the first thing that you will need is a plan. This means taking into account what type of fencing that you want to install and therefore your budget. A big component of that will derive from the type of area that you are looking to fence, and how big a fence you are going to need. The first step should be creating a descriptive plan of your pool space, and what you want it to look like. Once you know the area that you dealing with, you can measure out how far from the pool you want the fence to be and can then measure how long the fence will extend, and therefore how much fencing you will need to acquire. This is important to do from the start, because if you need a fence far longer than you initially thought, then it could really affect the type of fence you can afford whilst sticking to your budget. In measuring out the pool fence area, please make sure that you are avoiding any potential climb point areas.
