What is a Pool Safety Cover?
A safety cover is a trampoline-style pool cover that is stretched over the pool and then secured to the deck by way of straps, springs and anchors. Deck anchors are specific to the deck type and can accommodate surfaces such as concrete, interlock, stone and wood.
Safety covers have a 4000 lb break strength ratio so they are easily able to withstand weights far in excess of humans or animals.
There are 3 main benefits to owning a safety cover:
The 2009 Ontario Drowning Report, released by the Lifesaving Society of Canada lists drowning as the 2nd leading cause of preventable death for children under 10 years of age.
A pool safety cover can provide an added layer of protection against accidental intrusion and offers peace of mind while on vacation or when the pool is not in use for extended periods of time.
2. Improved Aesthetics
A safety cover improves the appearance of any backyard pool. It is custom made to fit your pool shape and size and is available in many colour choices to suit the backyard theme. In the winter months, you’ll avoid the use of bulky oversized covers that are held in place by water bags.
3. Added Functionality
Mesh covers are lightweight and easier to maneuver and require little maintenance since debris that lands on typically blows off the top. Snow and rain drain through the mesh panels allowing you to avoid the swampy conditions that come with other cover styles.
“I purchased my pool safety cover in October of 2008 and feel it was an excellent investment for so many reasons. The cover is easy to install and remove, but unlike conventional pool covers which accumulate water and debris that must be pumped out when the pool is opened; the safety cover eliminates this step because it allows water to filter through, while leaf litter and debris blows away. This greatly simplifies and speeds up the process of opening the pool. There are several large trees surrounding my pool which in the past resulted in a huge accumulation of leaf litter in my previous pool cover. This made pool opening a nightmare each season. With the safety cover however, the pool is up and running in no time. An additional benefit of water filtering through the safety cover is that it is no longer necessary to top up the pool at the beginning of the season. My water source is from a well, and in order to avoid putting an excessive burden on it, it was necessary for me to have water trucked in at each pool opening. The safety cover has completely eliminated this expense, saving me a few hundred of dollars each season. Finally having the pool enclosed by a safe, secure and resilient cover gives me great peace of mind during the long off season.”
“We were looking for a new cover that would make it easier to open and close our pool. We’ve dealt with Pool Village previously and always felt their customer service was excellent. The installation was on time, as promised, and professionally done. With the new pool cover, opening and closing our pool is significantly easier and a lot faster and it’s safe for our dog to walk on too.”
