Pool Safety Covers FAQs

Are you wondering, Is a pool safety cover the best for my pool?

If you live in a climate where conditions require your pool to be winterized or where leaves and debris are an issue or water conservation is paramount, a pool safety cover is a great solution. When installed, a pool safety cover keeps debris out, lowers UV radiation exposure, lowers evaporation, and can even help warm the pool water. Additionally, if you have a vacation home with a pool or you are not in your home full-time, a pool cover ensures your pool is completely closed to entry giving you peace of mind.

Does a pool cover provide enough protection for your loved ones?

Pool Guard will take extensive measurements of your pool and all of its features. A pool safety cover is then designed to your pool’s exact specifications to insure a perfect, snug fit, even around ladders, walls, spas, and steps. Once installed, a pool safety cover is nearly impossible to remove without the specially designed installation bar provided. These two features together give you a pool safety solution that prevents unsupervised access to your swimming pool and prevents accidental drowning.

What types of pool safety covers should I consider?

You have several choices of materials for pool safety covers from Pool Guard. Covers come in Secure A Pool mesh, ProMesh, and HyperLite solid. Much of the difference in cover materials is the weight of the material, durability, and UV-blocking properties. Secure A Pool mesh is the lightest of the materials and provides full protection and a good deal of UV blocking. ProMesh is a denser and heavier weave, blocking nearly 100% of the sun’s rays. HyperLite solid covers block all UV light and are the heaviest weight of all the materials. All HyperLite solid covers come with either a central drain or a pump to
prevent rainwater and snowmelt from puddling on the cover. The material you choose will depend on your pool, your environment, and your preferences. Your Pool Guard dealer will help you make the right choice.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our pool safety covers:

Your pool safety cover may be cleaned with soapy water (use dish soap only) and a soft brush, or you can use a pressure washer provided the nozzle angle is 45 degrees or larger and you spray from no less than 6 inches from the cover. If you are cleaning your cover before storing it, we recommend that you be sure to allow the cover to dry completely before storage to avoid mold and damage.

Water will not puddle on your cover. Both Secure a Pool mesh and ProMesh covers are water permeable, allowing water and snowmelt to pass through the cover. HyperLite Solid covers come equipped with either a central drain to allow water to drain directly into the pool or a pump system to remove water from the cover directly. Pool Guard recommends that you check the water level of your pool frequently during the off-season to ensure the water level does not come in contact with your safety cover.

ProMesh and HyperLite Solid pool safety covers are an excellent way to block the UV light that causes algae growth throughout the winter making your spring pool opening much less of a chore. In fact, HyperLite Solid covers block 100% of UV light.

All Pool Guard pool safety covers meet or exceed ASTM standards 1346-91 for pool covers.

A professionally installed pool safety cover will help keep both stray and wild animals from accessing your pool by completely sealing the water off from access. Your cover will give you peace of mind by not only keeping your family safe but also all of the animals in your neighborhood.

Your new pool cover comes with a specially designed installation bar that makes it simple for an adult to install or uninstall the cover in just a few minutes.

Our Pool Guard authorized dealers will use a proprietary pool measuring app to measure any shape pool accurately and precisely, no matter how complex, for a perfect fit every time.

Whether you have chosen a mesh safety cover or a solid one, it will do an excellent job of keeping debris such as dirt, leaves, and branches out of your pool. Your cover is designed to fit tightly to the deck to prevent the edges from blowing up in wind and allowing debris to pass underneath. Who knows, with your Pool Guard pool safety cover in place all winter, you may actually enjoy opening your pool in the spring!
