Default Self Closing/Latching RV Gate that opens to a pool?

Hey guys,

I got done with an inspection this morning that had a pool in the back yard. One side of the fence had a self closing, self latching access man size access gate. The other side a double gate, that could fit a small truck through with no additional hardware.

My question is, does this double gate need to have self closing, self latching hardware to be considered safe?

Located in Arizona, if that helps.

Thank you

Since we don't have a speciaifed set of rules here I used the CPSC ones. The Southern Nevada Pool Code is basically the same. If there is a Vehicle Gate then it should be self latching but doesn't need to be self closing.

Yes, if the gate provides direct access to the pool it needs to self close and latch.
