Outdoor swimming pools in the state of Pennsylvania must adhere to state requirements regarding pool fence barriers. These regulations vary on a local-level which means homeowners must check with their local township for specific requirements.
Generally, pool fence requirements mandate that a pool must be completely surrounded by a barrier that obstructs access to the swimming pool. Pennsylvania sitewide building code mandates throughout all of Pennsylvania that all pools must be fenced on all sides with a structure at least 48-inches high. Any body of water more than 24-inches deep is considered a pool and must meet required safety standards.
For above ground pools—The sides of the pool, if 48 inches, may be considered the fence. A removable or locking ladder is required and it must be removed or locked when the pool is not in use. For in-ground pools, all fence gates must be self-closing and latching.
