Swimming Pool Safety -The Benefits of a Mesh Pool Fence

BY: Sapphire Pools of Texas / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Pool Ideas

Here at Sapphire Pools and Spas we are all about our clients’ well-being and safety, which is why we wanted to share our thoughts on the benefits of a mesh pool fence. Mesh pool fence panels are specifically designed to minimize any chance of children climbing on them since they have no slats or cross bars. With this design, children have no easy foot hold that would allow them to climb the fence and hoist themselves over it.

Mesh pool fences provide the utmost in safety for children, but they also provide pool owners with a very attractive look. The aesthetic quality of a mesh fence speaks for itself, but the panels also allow the maximum amount of sunlight to pass through the strands of mesh as well. The mesh panels are constructed with very tiny holes that are near to unnoticeable from even the smallest distance which means it is almost like looking through a transparent sheet of plastic rather than a typical constructed fence.

The benefits to a mesh pool fence are many. To begin with, the PVC coated material used in a mesh fence is not only long lasting but hard wearing since it is designed specifically for outdoor use. The mesh is also resistant to tear and sun exposure. Mesh fences are every bit secure, durable, safety effective and indeed cost effective as well. They cost a great deal less than a conventional pool fence such as wood, chain link, glass or wrought iron and are fast becoming a popular choice among consumers for both safety and economical reasons.

Further, they are remarkably convenient since a mesh pool fence can be easily taken down, removed, and is designed to roll up quite easily and able to be stored away, especially during the cold winter months. Once you are prepared to open your swimming pool for the next summer season, your mesh pool fence can be removed from storage, unrolled, and easily installed yet again.

The professionals here at Sapphire Pools and Spas would like to advise all our valued clients who are considering varied options for pool safety to make informed decisions that are not only based upon their individual budgets but on their individual situation and needs as well. For those consumers who have children, we highly recommend the installation of any type of pool fencing, but give great value to mesh pool fencing as a viable option to increase overall safety and security but also allow for fast and easy access to your swimming pool.

Summertime is surely a time of fun, entertainment, relaxation and yes, long hours dipping and swimming in your family pool. Our team of professionals wants nothing more than for our clients to enjoy all the perks of the summer season and indeed to relax, enjoy and entertain family and friends.

Getting Into the Spirit with a Halloween Pool Party

BY: Sapphire Pools of Texas / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Pool Ideas

With fall upon us and Halloween just around the corner, why not host a fun-filled, extraordinary Halloween pool party. Temperatures are still somewhat comfortable here in the Forth Worth and surrounding areas, making this festive event one that can truly mark your Halloween celebration with family and friends.

Gathering together, partying and sharing fun and laughs with family and friends is always a memory in the making, but how unique and ‘thrilling’ it would be to gather, party and share frightful memories at Halloween time right in and around your pool and create chilling stories you can talk about and share over and over again.


Swimming season typically is over in the October months, but not here in the Fort Worth area. So why not put together some exciting, unique themed decorations and lighting to go around your pool and host yourself a fun-filled, spooky Halloween pool party. Throw in some super scary snacks and treats and a party mix of fun music and you have yourself a Halloween party that will keep your guests talking for months after the event.

Decorating your pool for your Halloween festivities is sure to put you and all your guests right in the spirit of the season. You can begin by purchasing carvable pumpkins that are made out of a low density foam, cut out scary faces, place a small tea candle inside and float them in your pool. In addition, get some plastic witches hats that will also float easily in the pool and add to your frightful decorations.

Next, buy a few skeletons and lay them on the lounge chairs around your pool and perhaps even place one of them atop your pool float amidst the pumpkins and witches hats. Floating these scary little decorations in your pool will amaze all your guests and certainly get everyone in the ‘spirit.’ And to put some finishing touches on your water decorations and put the fright into all your guests, die the pool water red with a non-toxic pool dye that will filter out in just a matter of days and will not, in any way, stain your pool.

With all your water decorations in place, why not add some more fear and fright to your décor with a variety of Halloween store props, including severed heads, large plastic spiders, graves, ghosts and goblins and let’s not forget the fog machine that will create that ghostly foggy presence to the surface of the pool water and to the grounds all around it. Surely all your guests, regardless of age, will find delight and fright in all your creative Halloween decorations and share in all the thrills, frights, and fun.


Be creative. Everybody loves punch at a party so make any type of punch that you would typically make, and then carve some apples, soak them in lemon juice and bake them for a few moments, giving them a very scary shriveled up look and place them afloat in your punch bowl. They will appear to look very much like frightful shrunken heads.

Then take crescent dough and cut it into strips. Place cocktail size wieners into the cut dough and wrap the dogs in a criss-cross manner. Bake them in the oven, allow them to cool and then make eyes on your little ‘mummies in a basket’ with either ketchup or mustard. You can also make little mummy pizzas, and don’t forget the witches brew.

When all is said and done its time now to pick the perfect music mix for your Halloween pool party and don’t forget to include “Helter Skelter” by the Beatles!!

The luxury of your pool surely affords you a means of relaxation and therapy, but why not take advantage of this unique party setting and entertain your family and friends this Halloween.
