(A)   Enclosure — required; specifications. Every outdoor private swimming pool shall be completely surrounded by a fence, wall, or enclosure in accordance with the Florida Building Code, and Supplement. Such fence, wall, or enclosure shall remain in place at all times and shall not be readily removable. However, any outdoor private swimming pool adjoining any body of water need not have a fence, wall or enclosure between such body of water and such swimming pool. A dwelling house or accessory building may be used as a part of such enclosure.
   (B)   All gates or doors opening through such enclosure shall be equipped with a self-closing and self-latching device for keeping the gate or door securely closed at all times when not in actual use.
(‘72 Code, § 31-4)
   (C)   Modifications. The Department of Planning and Development Services may make modifications in individual cases upon a showing of good cause with respect to the height, nature or location of the fence, wall, gate or latch or the necessity thereof, provided the protection as shown hereunder is not reduced thereby. The Department of Planning and Development Services may permit other protective devices or structures so long as the degree of protection afforded by the substitute device or structure is not less than the protection afforded by the wall, fence, gate and latch described herein. (‘72 Code, § 31-5)
