Sounds about right.
I can't remember exactly, but I think we paid about 8000 and that was to fence 3 sides, 15m which included the gate.

Try that company called 'aquanet', Instead of a fence you get a cover for the pool it looks really safe and surely must be more economical

Thanks Cushion, I read up a bit and it seems nets are a bit more of a hassle to put on and off, so we opted for a fence. Lauraloo, may I ask which company did you use?

I personally think the net is absolutely the safest option there is, assuming of course that all adult users of the pool can be trusted to put it back on every time. Depending on the size and shape of the pool (because they are all custom made and fitted), the net could cost as much as that fence quote though.

Fencing has the potential to be useless if people don't keep chairs, tables, pot plants, toys, garden taps etc etc etc well away from them, on both sides of the fence. With the correctly fitted net, there is simply no possible way a child can get near the water.

Sorry for the mild rant. We have some of the toughest pool fencing laws in the world where I live...yet children drown here every year because they are not kept out even by correctly installed and functioning pool fences. Another one just down the road this week...
