5 Pool Safety Cover Types for Your Inground Swimming Pool

Swimming pools are meant to be places of fun, not accidents. However, you cannot always control who goes near your pool, especially when it comes to children and pets. But you can provide an additional layer of protection by adding a Pool safety cover, along with your existing pool fence. There are a variety of pool covers, and some are designed for safety, others to keep out the debris and some to trap the heat from the sun.

So if you are looking to enhance the safety around your pool, you should choose from these 5 safety covers.

1. Track-Style Type Pool Covers

This type of Pool safety cover is made of reinforced coated vinyl. It will slide open and close on tracks which can be installed under the coping or around the deck. They are available in different types based on their operation, including:

  • Full-automatic
  • Semi-automatic
  • Manual

Choose the right one based on your budget and need for convenience.

2. Tie-Down Pool Cover

This type of Pool cover is available in two common materials:

  • Solid vinyl
  • Threaded nylon mesh

It is usually used by homeowners for closing the pool for the winter. You can also use it in the summer. When safety is your priority, you should  choose a tie-down cover that is specially designed for safety. It is important to ensure that the cover is made to ASTM for safety standards.

3. Mesh Cover

Mesh is a great type of material for inground swimming pools. Some are designed as Pool safety covers and are capable of holding a significant amount of weight. These covers allow the rainwater to pass through, eliminating the need for pumping the water out.

4. Automatic Safety Covers

If your budget allows it, it is recommended choosing an automatic cover for your pool. It is considered one of the best options for many reasons. It is made of solid vinyl and can automatically slide over the pool using a button or key switch.

This type of Pool safety cover is capable of holding a lot of weight, preventing unwanted. Besides, it will also offer other benefits such as:

  • Reducing evaporation
  • Reducing loss of chemicals
  • Keeping  the pool cleaner
  • Also working as solar cover to heat the water

Even though automatic types of pool covers are costlier, they save you money in the long term. Overall, they are considered highly effective and one of the safest options.

5. Custom Pool Cover

Besides these options, you could also have your Pool safety cover custom designed to your specifications. You can have the cover made to fit any type of pool having any shape. You could choose the material to suit your safety requirements.

There are so many options to choose from, and it is most likely that you can find a Pool safety cover from the above options. However, you could also have one designed to your preferences.

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.
