How Much Does a Pool Fence Cost?

Pool fence cost is based on multiple factors including the fence’s height, color, brand, installation details and even local markets

In general, though, mesh pool fences cost between $17-$35 per linear foot. For example, if you needed 100ft of pool fence, you could expect to pay somewhere between $1,700 – $3,500 based on these estimates. Custom configurations and certain deck types can increase your cost per foot an additional $1-$15 per linear foot.

Your local Life Saver installer will measure how many linear feet you need around your pool and give you a pool fence estimate at no cost. Additional options, like a self-closing, self-latching gate, might be recommended for your specific application, and those options can change the cost. In addition, if you need custom work for stairs, grass, etc., that can have an impact on the cost of your fence as well.

Available In A Variety Of Heights, Colors, And Models

Mesh pool safety fence comes in a variety of heights, colors, and models. Life Savers around the country generally offer three different brands of pool fence: PoolFenceDIYPool Corral, and our premium product, Life Saver Pool Fence. When you purchase a Life Saver Pool Fence, you truly get something custom tailored specifically to your home and family.


Life Saver Pool Fence comes in three different heights: 42”, 48”, and 60”. Besides the typical heights, we also offer custom heights for various applications, including fences for dogs and other pets. 48” is the most popular, and your pricing typically revolves around that height.


Black, brown, white, tan, green, and copper vein are all powder-coating options for your pool fence. Black is the standard color. Some Life Savers will request a small surcharge for colors other than black, especially the copper vein which is custom-ordered.


Our Pool Corral brand is our competitor grade pool safety fence. It is the most similar to other removable pool fences on the market, utilizing a quad-x pole, Textiline mesh, and a two-stitch border. Available only in black or brown, this fence has been proven over 30 years of manufacturing and is a great economical option. Combined with a self-closing gate, it is as safe and secure as any fence on the market. This is the model to compare pricing with when comparing to other competing brands. It should cost roughly the same.

PoolfenceDIY utilizes a half inch stainless steel pin and can be installed with a hammer drill, as opposed to a core drill, by a home owner or a local Life Saver. If it is self-installed, PoolfenceDIY is even more economical than Pool Corral. PoolfenceDIY comes in black or brown, with the brown costing a bit more than black.

Life Saver Pool Fence is a premium mesh pool safety fence exclusively offered by authorized Life Saver dealers featuring a three-layer solid pole construction that has been tested to withstand over 100lbs of force, making it by far the strongest pole available.

The Life Saver Pool Fence also comes with the highest quality latching system in the nickel-plated brass snap safety latch. Also, the Life Saver Pool Fence has four stitches in the border, a 100-Year warranty, and heavy duty Textiline mesh. It comes in every color combination available, in all three heights, and every time a Life Saver Pool Fence is purchased, pool fencing is set aside to be donated to the family of a fatal or non-fatal drowning victim through our Save a Life Program. More than $50,000 a year worth of mesh pool safety fencing is donated through this program. Life Saver Pool Fence, as the most premium product on the market, tends to cost more than other pool safety fences, but also comes with features unavailable anywhere else.

What Do Pool Gates Cost?

A mesh pool safety fence includes one of two kinds of gates for the pool. The manual pool gate requires the pool fence section to be unlatched, a pole to be removed from the deck, the mesh folded back out of the way, and the pole put into an extra hole, called a layback hole.

This option is free, as it is part of the construction of the pool fence. If you are looking for a pool gate for your pool fence without any additional cost, this is your best option.

The other choice is a self-closing, self-latching pool gate for your pool fence. This gate has a magnetic lock that latches automatically and hinges with tension that close automatically. This functions similarly to an automatic door and is the best option for safety and convenience. Self-closing, self-latching pool fence gates are recommended by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Drowning Prevention Alliance.

What does this kind of a pool gate cost? Depending on height, color, installation, and other variables, the pool gate price can range from $500 – $800. Your best bet is to contact your local Life Saver to get a free quote. Fill out the form below to have them contact you.
