Most municipalities require that a swimming pool or spa must be barricaded with a fence or a screen enclosure. Fencing will satisfy code and zoning requirements but will not protect your pool area. There are many benefits from having a screen enclosure around your pool. Another benefit to a screened pool is the fact that a screen will satisfy code requirements while maintaining the natural beauty of your yard. If the view from your backyard is a pond, lake, or forest, you don’t want to block your view of nature with a fence. A screen enclosure will protect you and your pool from the outside world while still immersing you in nature.
Screen enclosures will keep leaves and debris out of your pool. You don’t want branches from trees falling into your freshly cleaned pool, every day. Screens will prevent dirt and plant materials out of your sparkling pool. Not only will a screen enclosure protect your pool from the outside elements, but it will also keep your family and friends “bug-free” while enjoying the great outdoors. You don’t want to have to use bug-spray every time you are enjoying your pool. Screens will help protect you from those pesky mosquitos without subjecting you to harsh smelling bug spray. A screen enclosure will allow your next barbecue the opportunity to be free of bugs. No more slapping those annoying pests off of you while you’re trying to enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Live outside worry free of what bugs are in your backyard because they won’t be flying by your pool.
Another benefit to a screen enclosure versus a fence is the extra safety it will bring to you and your family. Living in Florida, we all know the extent of the summer sun and how hot and brutal it can be. Screen enclosures can help filter out some of harshness of the Florida sun’s rays. Tampa Bay area pools receive a great deal of sunlight, but with a screen enclosure you can lessen some of the blazing sun. Enclosures also provide an extra safety barrier for animals and for children. It is important to keep in mind that not everyone and everything knows how to swim. However, a screen enclosure can give you peace of mind that you are keeping everyone around you safe.
