Typically takes less than 15 minutes to remove or put on. Installation is easy usually only taking a couple hours. An Installer will place an anchor approximately every 2 feet around the pool. There are many types of anchors including flush brass, keyhole, and composite. Pool nets are kept tight using 1 or 2 central tensions systems (CTS). A CTS consists of lines that use a device to pull the line tight and central pulleys to distribute the force. Some pools do not need a CTS system your dealer will advise you if this is an option.
How Safe are Pool Nets?

Once tension is applied a pool safety net cannot be removed by a child, and the child will not be able to fall into the water. Parents can teach older children how to remove the system. However removal requires a special tool to take the pool net off. Since we have been installing pool nets over 25 years ago we have never had a reported accident.

How Strong are Pool Nets?
All-Safe pool nets meet ASTM standards. ASTM testing requires that all safety nets are able to hold the weight of a child and two adults (485 lbs). The 485 lb limit is for break strength, meaning with this much weight the net will dip into the water. Pool nets keep children out of the water, but they can still get wet but will be unable to enter the pool. Your estimator will help explain how this rating affects your child’s safety. A pool net’s strength can be affected by deteriorating decks, water features or coping.

Each pool net is custom made for each pool, as such a trained professional is required.
