What to consider when planning a pool - SAVE TIME & MONEY
The distance between your pool fence and pool can significantly affect the total cost of your pool fence.
The distance from the waters edge to the fence needs to exceed at least 1,250mm to prevent the fence from requiring earthing as per Australian standards. Avoiding this requirement removes the need to contract an Electrician to earth the fence back to your Mains Earth at a substantial cost.
If earthing the fence is unavoidable due to lack of space, the pool should be planned so that the fence is installed prior to tiling or paving. This means the electrician can cut a channel into the top of the slab to slot the earth wire in, then tilling or paving can be installed over the top. NOTE: All wire termination is required to be done by a qualified electrician.
The other method is to drill through the side of the slab. This method is not always possible and ultimately depends on the location of the edge slab in relation to the fence.
