I have a normal sized pool, about 40-50ft around and would like to install a mesh pool fence around it so I can remove it when the kids get older. However, the quotes I have been receiving for a fence + gate have been north of $1,000. Is this the normal pricing? Does anybody have any recommendations on quality companies that do this?

Good Price and check location requirements and permits. It gets better.

Most "mesh" fences will not meet Arizona Pool Barrier laws. Please be sure to do some research on the laws to ensure your fence will be made to code.

My mesh fence cost just under $1000 for about 35 linear feet, including the gate which by itself costs around 200.

It's designed to hold back several hundred pounds of pressure, so I'm pretty confident a toddler won't be able to push it over.

A "mesh" fence that is sold specifically for removable pool fencing is made to withstand quite a bit of pressure. The mesh is actually in a frame, not like that orange plastic stuff.

From what I have read a Mesh fence does fall under the requirements for a fence around a pool.

Can you really put a price on your child's safety. Metal does not degrade out in the AZ sun like everything else does.

The temporary mesh panel fences are not needed to last for many years; they are plenty sturdy enough to meet the code standards and keep small children out. The OP only wants a fence until his children are older. Many use these temporary fences in that situation. This thread is about costs, etc., not whether they are a good choice or not.

My mother and stepfather got a mesh fence about 10 years ago for a small child and it's still holding strong today to keep dogs out of pool. I'm not sure the expense but it looks great and is very easy to remove for parties or any situation where it's not needed. I'd only consider that type of fence personally.

According to DCS Pool Barriers, "Removable mesh fencing does not meet pool barrier ordinance requirements in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. Removable mesh fencing is recommended to be used as an excellent secondary barrier in conjunction with self-closing and latching doors."
