We cannot express what a wonderful, hardworking person Michael is! My wife and I had received notice from council that we were required to complete numerous amendments to our pool fencing in order for it to be compliant. Being highly stressed with the situation and with very limited time, my wife reached out to Michael who was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning. His experience, expertise and excellent service made him wonderful to work with. We are truly thankful for his time and would highly recommend him.
D and V (Marsfield, NSW)
Michael gives outstanding service and advice. He spends time on site considering the most effective option that will deliver a practical and highest quality solution.
His engineering expertise and creative flair coupled with his communication skills delivered an exceptional result at a difficult site, with changes of levels and incorporating a pump house into existing structures. The level of detail in his work means he stands head and shoulders above any other contractors I have worked with. Engaging Michael is the best favour you could do yourself and your pool!
Elena Crittenden - North Turramurra
Job brief: We partnered with my First Class Glass glazier mates on this combination glass/alum project where I installed aluminium pool fence & gate at end of pool where glass was not practical nor justified, also a large alum slat privacy panel at end of patio. 2nd stage work was to install 3 gates in same alum slat panels to utility rooms under the patio.
Michael came recommended by the company installing glass fencing around part of our new pool.
He worked in extremely well with them to ensure there were no gaps in the compliance requirements.
He communicated well and turned up when he said he would and even worked through torrential rain to ensure he finished on time for follow on trades.
Oliver & Nadia, St Ives
After several disappointing quotes and plans to make my pool fencing compliant with updated council regulations, Michael, from Safe Pools Smart Fences scoped and planned a job that not only was pleasing to the aesthetics of the outdoor area but satisfied the regulations of council regulations.
Michael will keep you up to date daily with what work will be completed and with any unusual issues that need to be considered. Communication was excellent.
A very skilled carpenter and handyman - the work was to very high standard.
What was most pleasing was the look and feel of the decking and surrounds was as if it was always like this.
Thank you Michael.
Liz - Westleigh
Job brief & history - We raised the side boundary fence (that was too low) by adding a layer of palings to their pool side, then replaced a rusted steel filter box (that was climbable) with a tall Western Red Cedar cladded filter shed.
Michael was professional every step of the process from the moment he set foot on our property to the moment the last nail went in. His attention to detail and forethought for areas which we would never have considered was excellent and reassuring. Of particular note was his willingness to organise little details to make the completion of the work to our pool area ensure it was up to the compliance requirements set out by the inspector. He also offered sound advice and guidance on areas of the compliance requirements which were not even part of the jobs he was completing, again showing his care for the client, job and ultimately safety of our children.
Thank you Michael and Sam for completing a job in a timely manner with a friendly approach that resulted in our pool area looking so much better than when they first arrived.
Ian & Emily Fawbert - Galston
Job brief & history - We replaced both side boundary fence (lapped & capped timber paling, plus neighbours gate) & internal pool fence (charcoal tubular aluminium) in this project.
I noticed a short while ago our old pool fence was rusting badly. When I contacted Michael to quote the replacement fence I was impressed by his understanding of the current pool fence regulations and his concern to do the job properly. The fencing and gates Michael installed look great and work well. I am very happy with the result and the whole process from start to finish was very smooth. I would be happy to recommend Michael to anyone looking for a new pool fence. Thanks for doing a great job Michael.
Mike Howell - North Epping
I contacted Michael as we had bought a house with a non compliant pool fence. He came to quote the same week I spoke to him - I immediately felt comfortable as he had the best ideas to fix our pool fence for less money without making the area look unattractive. His work was perfect and we passed the inspection the first time. I highly recommend Michael and would use him again.
Simone Davis - Turramurra
My experience with Michael was nothing short of exceptional. The quality of his work is outstanding. He is reliable, timely and pleasant to deal with. His work is meticulous and he has a keen eye for detail. He spends a good amount of time planning the best outcome for a project and then delivers. He has tackled challenging jobs on my property that other tradesmen have shied away from for years, and his mindset is always that "we can find a way". He spent 3 hours with a pool certifier coming up with a complying solution to the fence of our pool's overflow tank, and not once was he frustrated by the difficultly of the job. He also pays attention to the small (but often important!) details that others miss and this acts to make the final product of the highest quality. You can tell when someone truly takes pride in their work. I recommend Michael without reservation and thank him for the excellent work he has done on my property. And so reasonably priced!
Sam Maitra - Hornsby Heights
Job brief & history - this pool exists in a very large backyard that never required a pool fence until major renovations to home & yard took place. We installed a combination of frameless glass & black tubular aluminium around this pool to isolate it with practical assess routes around the large area.
Michael spent considerable time with us, discussing the best way to fence our pool, a complicated job due to the shape of the pool and distance from the house. We are extremely happy with the result. Michael has helped us to maximise the useable space, we have an aesthetically pleasing fence and a pool that is now compliant and safe. Michael was professional and pleasant throughout our dealings with him. His work is excellent.
We would definitely recommend Michael and Safe Pools Smart Fences to anyone looking to fence their pool.
Joanna Gee - Normanhurst
We contracted Michael from Safe Pools Smart Fences recently to assist in making our pool comply with the latest laws.
Our whole experience with Michael was exceptional, dealing with a tradesmen who had such a wealth of knowledge.
Quite simply, the quality of his work is nothing short of perfection. We hope to be able to recommend him to our friends, as his pricing was very realistic also.
Grant - Wahroonga
From the initial meeting and site inspection Michael worked with me to come up with a suitable solution to fix a non-compliant pool fence.
Michael is up to date with the current pool fence compliance regulations and very knowledgeable in all aspects for pool fencing solutions.
The fence was installed in a timely and professional manner. Michael's attention to detail was faultless. He kept me up to date with the progress of the job from ordering the panels to final installation.
He organized for the old pool fence to be taken away and left the pool area spotless.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael and Safe Pools Smart Fences.
Di - Mt Colah
Job brief & history - This client & his sister were selling their (sadly) deceased fathers home which I used to do a lot of property maintenance & repairs on when I owned a well known franchise up to around April 2016 when I commenced the Safe Pools Smart Fences business. The home has a pool which every part of the barrier was non-compliant, so I was asked to assess & propose solutions. I was referred by Soames Real Estate who marketed the sale ...
I've been meaning to get in touch with you but life is a bit hectic at the moment. Dad was always happy to see you, and not just because you fixed his latest crisis. He had great respect for the quality of your work and the insightfulness of your advice.
I was very happy to find that the guy everyone was recommending for the pool job was you and your solution to our problems was not only compliant, it looked attractive, got done quickly and was economical too. I appreciate all that you've done around this place and you did us proud with the pool area work.
It may be a while before I need that sort of work done again, but if I know of anyone who needs it done, be assured that I will recommend you.
John McIntyre - Hornsby
I would be more than happy to recommend Michael Gyler from Safe Pools Smart Fences. We had a very tricky area of pool fencing needed around the base of an established & much loved tree. Michael made a wonderful & very discreet panel out of clear perspex to ensure our pool was safe.
Many thanks for such an efficient & attractive solution.
Anna Hopkins - Wahroonga
Thank you so much for the great job you did for us. Our pool fence was a challenge in many ways including angles and gates and odd lengths not to mention you having to fit your job around the pool repairs and renovations of the patio area. We appreciated your punctuality, attention to detail and workmanship. All these were essential in achieving our goals. You fitted everything in on time and on budget and we were very happy to have you at our home. We would recommend you to anyone. Thanks again, we couldn't be happier with the result.
Ian & Anne Lewis - Berowra Heights
It is with great pleasure that we give this testimonial in respect of a great job performed by Michael Gyler of Safe Pools Smart Fences in the design and construction of a boundary fence and pool fencing around our pool to ensure the pool complies with very strict legislative requirements for pool safety. Michael's vast knowledge and understanding of these requirements ensured certification of our pool.
Over the years we have dealt with a number of tradesmen in the building industry and it must be said that Michael is one of the most meticulous and efficient persons we have ever dealt with. His attention to detail is excellent and his level of communication ensures you always knew when to expect him on the job, This was very evident in our job which was carried out in inclement weather.
We would be more than happy for any prospective client of Michael's to inspect our pool fencing and to answer any queries they may have.
Gay and Graham Witts - Wahroonga
Job brief - we had a massive pool area to install black tubular aluminium fence & gates, all sloped & angles, to replace non-compliant ARC steel wire fencing. We also installed charcoal aluminium slat screens along 15m side fence, to effectively raise the height to over 1.8m of a timber paling fence that sloped from 1.8m down to only 1m.
It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with Michael Gyler from Safe Pools Smart Fences.
My job was a challenge with the pool having been built in 1979 when rules were very different from today's.
Nothing was as it should be or easily rectified but Michael, being quite anal (and I say that in a really good way), ensured the fencing was done once and done well. It was an easy process to have it certified- something I am extremely grateful for.
The fence looks fantastic, was done on time and was no hassle what-so-ever.
Thank you Michael for your professionalism and pleasant manner.
Sue Hopkinson - Hornsby
We were very happy with the pool fence we had designed and installed by Michael. We really liked the attention to detail that he applied from the design and quote stage through to the installation. We had great confidence from the start that he would deliver a fence that would pass the Compliance inspection first time.
Thank you Michael for the great job and a really nice person to deal with.

Regards Randal & Robyn - Baulkham Hills
We are very happy with the pool fence installed by Michael for us. He gave us sound advice prior to the installation on the positioning of the fence, on costing, on choice of fence type and on colour. Michael kept in contact with us while the fence was being manufactured and when it was time to install our fence, all work was done in a timely and professional manner. Michael is committed to installing pool fences that comply with the relevant safety regulations. We would certainly recommend his pool fencing services.

If you are ever thinking of renovating a house, Michael will be the best project manager. He has got the necessary connections to get great tradies for the job, manage their tasks and oversee/quality-manage the progress. He is ideally suited to manage client requests, communicating the requirements to the tradespeople and making sure that work is performed to the required standard. In addition, he is a very good handyman with high attention to detail. The only thing left now is for Michael to clone himself, so that everyone can enjoy his skills ;-)
