Do I have to fence in my yard when I put up a pool?

A minimum 5’ barrier surrounding pool is required, either fenced yard or pool fence with locking gate or ladder if pool or pool access is less than 5’ above ground.  If the top of the pool has a surrounding deck or patio 30” or more above grade, there shall be a railing or barrier placed at the outside edge of the surrounding deck or patio that is a minimum of 36” tall and shall have intermediate rails or closures which do not allow passage of an object 4 inches or more in diameter. For in-ground pools, an automatic locking pool cover may be installed in lieu of a barrier, as provided for in 675 IAC CH 20.
