    Episode 27 of The Home Team Season 2 on TEN

    With the pool shell now installed, its time to think pool safety in Episode 27 of The Home Team on Channel TEN. Working with a small triangular backyard, creating a sense of space is paramount. To avoid a caged-type effect often associated with safety pool barriers, Anthony chooses to utilise the balustrade around the raised deck as a pool barrier. The frameless glass pool fencing wraps around the decked alfresco area and also features at both sides of the house, creating a completely secure pool zone.

    In this episode, Anthony explores a couple of key takeaways when installing pool fencing - windows opening into the pool zone, the direction of entry gates and discusses the design considerations he took when building the outdoor kitchen to ensure there were no climbable elements located near the pool barrier.

    It is important not to listen to family and friends when it comes to pool safety - what worked a couple of years ago, won't meet the building code today. Anthony finishes by suggesting to seek the advice of a surveyor, they will explain exactly what you need to consider for your specific backyard before designing and installing the safety pool fence. Have fun. Enjoy your pool. Play it Safe.
