CAUTION: Discount Fence Supply, Inc. is not that author of this PDF and all codes should be checked with a local office before purchasing!

DON'T FORGET - Before ordering, YOU must check you local laws and regulations as they may vary from the B.O.C.A. standards.


CAUTION: PLEASE PLEASE check local building and zoning codes before purchasing any fence. Pool code requirements can and WILL vary drastically. It is impossible for us to know all local codes throughout the world.
