Choosing the Right Pool Safety Cover

Swimming Pool Covers NW Arkansas, Oklahoma & Mississippi

Safety is, and should be, your number one concern when you own a pool and have children. And the most important thing you can do as a pool owner is properly outfit your pool with the right kind of safety cover. There are a variety of options on the market that fit different types of pool and your different needs.

Automatic Pool Covers

Automatic pool covers are the easiest to operate as they go off and on with the simple push of a button. This solid cover is usually best for rectangular or square-shaped pool and is built into the pool system so it remains hidden when not in use. This type of cover is rarely used for kidney-shaped, oval or circular pools. It's solid nature will keep out debris.

Pool Safety Net

A pool safety net is strictly used to keep out children and not beneficial in keeping out any type of debris. This type of cover is anchored to the sides of the pool and does require two people to apply.

Mesh Pool Covers

Mesh pool covers are most often used on pools that are closed for the winter because they allow weather like rain and snow to drain into the pool rather than collect on top of the cover. This is also beneficial for safety because this type of cover won't allow water to pool on top of the cover causing a puddle that could pose a safety hazard.

Solar Pool Covers

Lastly, solar covers are the least expensive and look like a giant sheet of bubble wrap. This type of cover usually requires two people to operate and does a good job keeping the heat in and the debris out. A major concern with this type of cover is that it does have a history of causing entrapment and drownings.
