How To Choose The Right Safety Swimming Pool Covers?

Accidents can easily happen around swimming pools, and it is extremely important to protect children by installing swimming pool covers. In fact, a high-quality and effective pool cover can be a great investment that you make. Make sure to choose a cover that complies with your local regulations for weight load capacity. This guide provides you valuable information about choosing the right safety pool covers.

Solid Safety Pool Covers

Most local codes require that a typical safety pool cover be able to hold the weight of at least two adults. While protecting the water from debris and maintaining temperature are important concerns, most importantly swimming pool covers should prevent anyone from entering the water. The main goal of a safety pool cover is to reduce the risks of drowning.

Advantage – Solid safety pool covers are not just about safety, they can serve dual purpose. You can use them round the year to also keep your pool clean and free from debris. The choice of the right type of cover can also help prevent evaporation and maintain water temperatures.

Solid safety swimming pool covers are commonly made from solid vinyl. The main attributes include:

  • They protect the pool from not only debris, but sunlight too.
  • They prevent water to pass through, thus keeping water in.
  • A drain panel may be added to prevent buildup of precipitation during winter.

Solid swimming pool covers rest on the surface of the water. The right type can fit perfectly on your pool and ensure fully clean pool. It is usually secured using rubber ties and has brass anchors.

There are also tarp-styled pool covers that stretch across the water. However, these swimming pool covers can allow water and snow to remain on top. So a pump will be required to keep the top clear and clean.

Mesh-Type Safety Pool Covers

Mesh-styled safety covers may not require as much work as their solid counterparts, they don’t block water and dust. However, you will not have to worry about water or snow buildup over the surface of the swimming pool covers.

Mesh covers will keep the debris and leaves out. They will however allow the rain to enter the pool. This can be both good and bad. While it can help keep the pool remain full, during winter the pool can get filled with dirty water. But there is no need to worry about water building weighing over the cover requiring pumping out. Metal mesh pool covers can however be durable and reliable. They can provide adequate amount of protection against falling in the water.

Automatic Pool Covers

These types of swimming pool covers will cost you more, but they offer many advantages. They are also available in different types, and it will be best to choose the ones that can be used round the year. They are easy to use because it requires just a press of a button to close and open them. They are rigid and help keep the pool clean and also help in reducing evaporation and maintaining temperatures.

So consider these different options when choosing the right safety swimming pool covers.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
