Why would I choose a pool safety net for my swimming pool?
For some swimming pool owners, the view beyond their pool is almost more important than the pool. A Pool Guard pool safety net provides the zero obstruction view those pool owners are looking for while still providing a strong measure of pool safety. For other swimming pool owners, they desire a cost-effective second layer of pool safety to pair with a pool safety fence, door alarms, or other safety equipment. A properly installed pool net can provide that additional layer.
How does a safety net work?
Pool safety nets are designed to overlap the edges of your pool and are hooked to anchors installed in the deck around the perimeter of the pool. Once hooked to the anchors, the net brought up to proper tension using a ratchet and central tension system. A properly installed pool safety net will remain at least 4 inches above the surface of the pool, even with up to 400 lbs. of weight on it.
Is a pool safety net my best pool safety option?
The answer to this question lies in your situation. If you are a pool owner who does not use your pool often, will be vigilant about replacing the net when the pool is not in use, or if you are looking for a second level of security to add to existing pool safety equipment, a pool safety net is a good option for you. Pool safety nets are also a great option for other water hazards such as spas and backyard ponds.
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our pool safety nets:
Pool Guard pool safety nets are constructed with a Central Tensioning System (CTS). The CTS allows the pool net to be installed and maintained with the proper tension on the net material to ensure it is always above the water level of a correctly filled pool.
Your pool safety net should be stored in a dry location off the ground. A convenient net roller is available from your authorized Pool Guard dealer to store your net poolside when it is not in use.
Our specially designed CTS makes removing or reinstalling your pool safety net a snap. The average adult should be able to remove or install the pool net in just a few minutes.
The 3-inch rope spacing of the net material and the CTS make our Pool Guard safety net safe for children even if they should climb onto the installed net. The hole size prevents any child’s head from coming in contact with the water and the properly tightened CTS prevents the net from coming into contact with the surface of the water, even with weight on the net.
Pool safety nets are great for any backyard where an unobstructed view is desired. Whether your view is the sea, the mountains, or simply beautiful landscaping; a pool net will not interfere with your enjoyment of your special view. Additionally, many customers find greater peace of mind with a two-layer barrier system created by using a pool safety fence in conjunction with a pool safety net; particularly when there is a separate spa in the pool area.
Pool Guard pool safety nets have been independently tested and certified to meet or exceed ASTM F1346-91 standards for pool safety barriers. Properly installed, your pool safety net can easily handle the weight of an average adult.
