Counties around the Central Pennsylvania require fencing around swimming pools including safety latches as a safety precaution.

You may also be required to install alarms on doors &/or windows in your home that go into the pool area as well.
5. What type of pool is best?
Several types of in-ground pool options are available, including vinyl, plaster, and fiberglass. While one is not necessarily better than the other, they each have certain advantages and disadvantages. Vinyl pools are often the easiest to take care of and refurbish.
