Did you know? That for children ages 1 to 14 years old, the second leading cause of death is Drowning. This fact is according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. After an extensive study was performed by the Consumer Product Safety Commission also known as the CPSC, found that 75% of the children involved in swimming pool submersion or drowning accidents were between the ages of 1 to 3 years old.
There are many options and devices that can help protect children and pets from drowning or becoming submerged in swimming pools. Many areas of the country require fencing or other barriers around swimming pools and are part of the building codes, check your local codes to see if this is a requirement of your area. However if access to your swimming pool is possible, Protective Pool Safety Covers are considered the safest and most effective way to prevent drownings and accidental submersions by covering and securing your pool. Safety pool covers act as a protective barrier, preventing children from accidental drowning and also protects pets and small animals. Please note that SOLAR POOL COVERS AND WINTER COVERS ARE NOT SAFETY COVERS. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F1346-91 standard (1996) requires that a safety pool cover be able to hold a minimum of 485 pounds per five square feet in order to qualify as a safety pool cover.

We offer two types of safety pool cover: "Mesh and Solid". All of our safety covers are anchored to a deck with straps that pull the cover taut over the pool; the straps usually attach to stainless steel springs and are anchored to recessed brackets in a deck surface. When the cover is removed, deck brackets that are not already flush with the deck can be screwed down to prevent tripping or toe-stubbing. Because the straps need to be anchored down, safety covers generally require at least two to three feet of decking all around the pool. There are a variety of deck anchors for all types of decking material including, but not limited to, concrete, brick, asphalt, earth, and wood.
Note: It is usually less expensive to purchase a rectangular cover that will cover your non-standard size pool or irregular shaped pool. But what most dealers will NOT tell you is that this will void the warranty with the manufacturer. This is true for ALL manufacturers' warranties. So please keep this in mind before ordering a rectangle cover for your Grecian, Roman, Oval, or Freeform pool.
ALL SAFETY COVERS FOR ANY SHAPED POOLS OTHER THAN A RECTANGLE, IS CONSIDERED A CUSTOM COVER.
