Alabama is among the many states that does not have a law pertaining to swimming pools and pool fencing. While Shelby County, AL may be different, in general, the laws in Alabama do not require pool owners to install a pool fence. It makes good sense, however, to have a pool barrier around your pool especially if you have children at home.

According to statistics, Alabama saw about 69 deaths due to drowning. Drowning is considered to be the leading cause of death among children in the United States.

What can help prevent drowning? A pool barrier. This will delay the time it takes a child to get into the pool. Shelby County or Alabama may not have specific pool fence laws to stipulate standards, like spacing, minimum fence height, gate specifications, and other information. However, it’s still a prudent idea to keep abreast to what can benefit you and your family. For example, without a pool gate, you may not be able to get insurance.

A pool alarm can notify you when anything with motion enters the property, as mentioned earlier. With no more than 15 pounds of water displacement, some pool alarms can be installed within the pool and detect any wave activity. If motion is detected, the pool alarm will emit a piercing sound.

There are also Safety Turtle wireless alarm systems for children. When playing outdoors, kids can wear sensor wristbands. If the sensor does get wet, a pool alarm will sound.

Across Shelby County, Alabama, more swimming pool owners understand the importance of installing a physical pool barrier for your children, the neighborhood children, and any pet or guest to remain out of harm’s way near a swimming pool. Pool fencing diminishes any chance of drowning incidents in swimming pools among young children, according to the CDC.

Additionally, although there isn’t a law in place for pool owners to have a pool barrier, there is the “attractive nuisance” theory. If you have a swimming pool in Alabama and a child or toddler crawls inside and drowns, even if they trespass onto your property without your permission, you are most likely to be held liable. This may sound unbelievable, but it is true, unfortunately.

The same thing applies if your child has access to someone else’s yard with a swimming pool and gets injured, you can file a legal claim against the homeowners. For safety reasons, it is recommended that a pool fence be approximately 5-feet-tall.

As for the Metropolitan Statistical Area, Shelby County is part of the Birmingham—Hoover, Alabama area. Shelby County was established on February 7, 1818.

    The first county seat was situated at Shelbyville in 1820. Long defunct, this settlement was located within today’s city limits of Pelham. The first courthouse was constructed of logs. The seat was moved in 1826 in Columbia, presently Columbiana.

    In 1854, a new brick courthouse building was completed, initially housed in an old school building. Now it is known as the Old Shelby County Courthouse with the Shelby County Museum and Archives within the building.

    Since about 1990, Shelby County has had an extensive history in agriculture. The county has become a significant location for cultivating soybeans, which has surpassed cotton as the most significant crop cultivated there.

    Interstate 65 and US Highway 31 have provided solid connections for a long time between Shelby County and Jefferson County, more populous, directly north. This leads to suburban development towns like Alabaster, Chelsea, Helena, and Pelham.
