Pool fences that are built to code with self-closing gates are adequate protection against drownings, providing gates are always kept securely closed.

TRUE          FALSE

Great answer!

Answer: FALSE

Dirt and lawn underneath fences can erode and leave spaces large enough for a child to get through. Additionally, chairs, firewood, and other items can provide a way for children to climb over fences. There is no substitute for constantly watching children anytime they are anywhere near a pool or pool area.
