Pool Fence ideas in San Jose

Our team at The Fence 4 Rent specializes in installing a variety of pool fences that provide security, privacy, and safety. 

Having a pool in California is a great idea because it provides an escape from the blazing sun during the summer season. Owning a pool in your backyard is even better because you can swim at your leisure and without having to share the pool with strangers.  

But you want to take a dip and lounge in your backyard in utter privacy. You don’t want nosy neighbors and curious passersby to see or know what you are doing. 

To get the privacy you want, you need to install a pool fence. Installing a pool fence not only keeps out prying eyes, it also provides safety especially for your kids and/or pets from falling into the pool. 

Pool fences can be ornamental. They can provide an aesthetic appeal around the pool area enhancing the overall look of your backyard. 

But what are some factors to consider when you are deciding on whether or not to install a pool fence?


  • Safety – installing a pool fence can give you a peace of mind knowing that your children and/or pets are not in danger of falling in.
  • Privacy – in San Jose, you can install a fence that is seven feet high. This high enough fence to provide you with complete privacy from curious eyes.
  • Aesthetics – besides safety and security, a beautiful pool fence can make your pool area look stunning.


  • Accessibility – while this is cannot is considered a major drawback. Installing a fence around your pool means, the only access you have to your pool is through the fence gate.
  • Visibility – a pool fence limits the view to your pool. This is a problem if you want your pool to be part of your panorama.
  • Cost – installing a pool fence is not cheap.

The Fence 4 Rent Pool Fencing Strategies

At The Fence 4 Rent, we recommend to customers three different pool fencing strategies:

Perimeter Fencing

Perimeter fencing can provide ample safety against accidental drowning. However, it has to conform to the safety requirements set by the San José Municipal Code.

Interior Fencing

The type of fencing encloses the pool area alone leaving the rest of the yard open. 

Removable Fencing

This type of fencing is ideal if you are the type of who loves holding barbeques or pool parties. You can remove it partially or entirely for a limited time to allow access into your pool. 

Easy Installation

Apart from being affordable, vinyl fencing is easy to install. Many homeowners prefer to install it themselves because it is easy to assemble the pieces. However, if you choose to hire a fence contractor to install your vinyl fence, the cost will still be significantly lower compared to, for example, the cost of installing a wrought iron fence.
