    I thing it is crazy that you have to fence a blow up wading pool!! Or one with the soft collapsable pool. Usually pools with that much water get emptied every time or every two times... Really??

    Um, yes, this has been the case for years and years and years. Drowning is not something to be flippant about.

    Depending on your council/state yes. Look on your local council's website, ours has the info on it.

    People across the road had to take theirs down last year (I had the windows open when they took is down, and as they are loud as all hell, I heard it all) Funnily enough its already up again this year, they seem to not be the rule/law following type though

    I can understand needing a fence around something that is needing a filter or is hard to drain easily...
    What I mean by ridicules is the tiny little blow up pools or shell pools that parents would probably empty after every time anyway because they are so small one adult can happily move it.... That is stupidity!
    Having to fence a pool that you can 'swim' in or requires a pump that needs a fence.... I get pool fences, just not for the smallest of pools that you wouldn't leave filled anyway?!?

    I think this is valid. Why is it up to individuals to foot the cost of fencing these things on their own property and yet there are countless public water features which are allowed to go unfenced. What's good for the goose and all that...

    It's probably impractical to fence dams etc but I do wonder why people who live on properties with dams don't fence their houses.

    My parents live on a canal so you can fall from the back yard into the canal (there is a jetty too). Yet their swimming pool is of course fully fenced - even the far side of it which can only be approached by water lol off the canal
