Swimming Pool Safety Covers

Swimming pool safety covers offer yet another safety barrier. The advantages of the pool safety covers are you can walk across them and they also keep out debris. Some of the highlights are:

  • Custom made to fit your pool
  • Three different types of mesh to choose from
  • Able to choose color
  • Backed by a 12 year pro-rated warranty against manufacturing or material defects
  • If properly installed, our covers will meet or exceed ASTM F1346-91 safety standards
  • A Safe Pool offers covers in three different categories to fit your needs. Please research the information below to find the best pool safety cover to fit your needs

Meycolite

This pool cover material, since it’s the lightest weight, is used on the worlds largest pool covers. Some pool covers get so big, Meyco will break it into smaller pieces that combine to make one safety pool cover. This material and the pool cover design has been tested time and time again from cars crashing on to it to tornados trying to rip it away, the original concept of this pool cover came from looking for an alternative to the dangerous, labor intensive way of closing pools. Working with a prominent pool builder in CT, Fred Meyer worked on several materials before coming up with an early ancestor to Meycolite.

RuggedMesh

As good as the Meycolite is, the RuggedMesh came to be a way of offering something different to the industry in mesh form. It was actually one of our competitors who to their credit, really pushed for this innovation and encouraged a material manufacturer to develop an early version of what we now call RuggedMesh. The Meyco version of the RuggedMesh Pool cover is designed to filter out finer particles and block more sunlight but it’s also designed to be a little stronger than another similar pool cover. The one thing to consider with the Ruggedmesh Safety Cover is it is not as forgiving as the Meycolite Safety cover. RuggedMesh pool covers can puddle easier as it may lose tension since it’s slower to drain and as its filtering mechanism begins to clog. You need a little more maintenance with the Rugged Mesh Safety Cover as it will require a more thorough cleaning after a winters use.

PermaGuard-Lite

The Solid Safety cover was designed to keep the waters chemicals in the pool longer, keep out the sunlight and finer debris. This will allow you to open a very clean pool in the spring. The only negative is the Solid Safety Pool Cover is heavier and not as easy to manage. Since it’s a solid, it also means water stays on top of the pool cover and the debris that would normally blow off your pool cover, is now stuck onto your cover. Meyco developed the lightweight pool cover called Permaguard to help mitigate some of these problems, but these points are still something to be aware of.
