Swimming pool safety net

Postby carolynW » Wed, 11 Feb 2009 8:25 pm

Does anyone know where I can get this in singapore? or do people only build fences around the pool?

So, decide.

Is it a gate or a net? Is it a netted gate or a gated net or none of the preceding?

My first preference is a net but will build a fence if I can't get any safety pool net suppliers in singapore. I haven't seen a single pool with a net, has anyone?

I don't think safety nets are available in Singapore, it is hard enough to find a safety fence.

Well, dickhead, it was a serious question. Is a net required or sought, or is it a gate. If a gate then most pool shops will be able to help, if a net then I've never seen one in Singapore. Simple, possubly too simple for you.

Maybe you'll shove your head up your arse the next time you intentionally misread something . . . just an idea

Hmm, this is not a controversial subject!! I wonder if there is some form of Forum rage in singapore?

I wonder why there are no net people here, the business is quite good, you need replacements every few years, if your dog bites the net there is repair business and it is much safer tho a pain to put on and take off. Maybe not enough pools here.

Gates seem like kids can hop over.

Gates should be high enough for the kids not to open the lock, never had a problem with them at home, minimum 5 foot fence and the twist and turn unlocking mechnaism another 20cm higher. (roughly)

As to the rage, ask the moron who misinterprets and then is arrogant about it. . . just a thought.

You're best off with a gate, I'd say.
