Pool Safety Covers protect more than just your pool from the harsh winter & fall elements, they are designed to prevent accidental submersion. Making them the ideal cover for families with small children and pets.
Winter Covers and Safety Covers -- What's the Difference?
Traditionally, Winter Covers are the affordable choice for protecting your pool from the winter. Winter Covers starting costs are low for a small covers. While a Safety Covers will run a bit more.
We partner with GLI Pool Products to provide our client’s with Safety Covers. GLI’s covers are made of either a strong polypropylene mesh (for mesh covers) or tough, long lasting vinyl (for solid covers), these strong materials give the expectancy of your cover 12-15 years in most cases, with regular care. Proper washing, storage and maintenance will ensure your covers longevity.
Safety Covers work differently than Winter Covers. While Winter Covers are held down around the pool with water pillows, Safety Covers mount to anchors, which are drilled into your deck or patio around the pool, with heavy-duty springs.
Because your traditional winter cover is made from a solid material, rain, snow and ice will collect on the top of you pool cover. Once the water collects on the top of the cover you will need to pump the water off, to prevent build up and a messy spring clean-up.
Mesh Safety Covers allow rain or snow pass through cover & into your pool, leaving behind the debris on the top of the cover to be removed. GLI Solid Safety Covers come standard with either a drain - which will drain the water from surface filtering out dirt, leaves and debris - or pump to drain off water. Both Safety and Winter Covers protect your pool from algae growth over the long winter months & chemical loss through evaporation.
Both Covers offer their benefits, however, if you are looking for Safety, a Safety Cover is the only way to go. While the Winter Cover secure the actual pool from the elements they do not secure your family, pets or stray animals. Safety Covers provide a protective barrier between the pool and accidental intrusion, while a Winter Cover will not.
