When desiging a pool, most building codes will require a fence enclosure around the pool area with self-latching gates. Others take it a step further and require door alarms on all house doors leading out to the pool area. Design is extremely important, but safety is the rule when it comes to swimming pools! While most national pool building code standards are fairly common between the states and municipalities, some of these codes will vary state-to-state and town-to-town. In addition to checking the local building codes specific to your area, you'll also want to check with your home owners association because they'll have their own set of rules and requirements for pool design and construction.
