I purchased 5 sections to enclose my pool and spa to protect my senior dog, who has difficulty seeing, from falling into the pool once again. It works perfectly! He was upset that he couldn't get right next to the edge, but we were relieved! My husband put it up in a couple of hours using a drill. Make sure you download the assembly instruction from Water Warden website so you can know what tools you will need and how to set it up. You might also need to trim the bottom of the pole that goes into the ground if you happen to hit a rebar. We did in 4 places so rather than drilling into the rebar, we trimmed the pole. It's still very sturdy and stands upright without a problem.
The gate needed to be assembled. It would have been so much better if the holes had been previously drilled for assembly, Too much time was spent trying to align the parts/mechanism. My spouse is not experienced in "handy work" and he put it in backwards, which has created a problem. Otherwise, the gate appears sturdy.
