This is on the pool side. The diamond mesh was added so that a kid can't reach through the fence and get to the doorknob.
This is an apartment complex swimming pool. The Health Dept. is responsible and approved the fence as a pedestrian barrier.
This is the street side and right there is a doorknob so the kid doesn't have to reach through the fence to open the gate.
The job was a patio cover. I was filling in for another inspector and the contractor wanted a final inspection.
The pool was built six years prior. The barrier doesn't come close to compliance so quite naturally I wrote a correction. I caught a lot of grief over that.
The barrier was approved six years ago, another inspector has seen it several times without any comment....so I am out of line for writing a correction. Beyond that, I was not able to convince the office manager that the barrier is deficient. Sometimes I wonder if I was stranded on this planet.
I wrote a correction about the fence being too easy to climb. Diamond mesh lath was fastened to the outside. I had to say no to that so a rental chainlink fence was put up.
The pool is twenty years old. There was no mention of this gate as part of the pedestrian barrier.
The job was an el. service upgrade. An inspector had written a correction to place a CPR poster because of the swimming pool in the back yard.
