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.
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.
This is an apartment complex swimming pool. The Health Dept. is responsible and approved the fence as a pedestrian barrier.
The pool is twenty years old. There was no mention of this gate as part of the 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 an el. service upgrade. An inspector had written a correction to place a CPR poster because of the swimming pool in the back yard.
