Always one for an engineering challenge here is a system I devised to attach a security fence to the top of the swimming pool. The main motivation for this project was to avoid the expense of a perimeter fence around the backyard for a pool only used a few months during the summer. I brainstormed for a couple days about materials. I knew I would use plastic latticework for it's flexibility and water resistance. The missing piece of my puzzle was what to use for the vertical supports to hang the lattice from.
Finally while walking the isles in the plumbing department I found convenient pre-cut two foot pieces of schedule 40 white PVC. I built a wooden jig attached to the drill press table and used a hole saw to cut a C shaped notch in the bottom end of each support. The hole saw cut created a saddle that with the help of a stainless steel clamp mates the PVC securely to the pool's upper perimeter pipe. I drilled two holes at the top of each PVC pipe to attach heavy white cable ties which are used exclusively to attach the lattice work to the vertical supports and top perimeter tubes. A small door section once hung over the ladder opening and locked in place completes the circle providing the rigidity needed to prevent accidental or unauthorized entry.
