A retractable pool cover is a very safe way to protect your family from accidents and gives you peace of mind because the entire surface of the pool is covered. This cover can be installed in any shape of pool but with a rectangle pool you have the option to hide the tracking and roll end. The most popular type of install is the motorized cover, so with the flip of a switch, the cover automatically retracts.
The Winter Safety Pool Cover is designed to provide safety and to keep leaves and debris from entering your pool. A mesh pool cover can be custom-made to fit the exact shape of your pool. This type of pool cover will easily support the weight of a child and two or three adults.
The mesh fabric allows rain water to pass through so that it does not collect on top of the pool cover. These mesh covers are anchored to a deck with straps that pull the cover taut over the pool, the straps usually attach to stainless steel springs and are anchored to recessed brackets in a deck surface. When the cover is removed, deck brackets that are not already flush with the deck can be screwed down to prevent tripping or toe-stubbing. Because the straps need to be anchored down, mesh covers generally require at least two to three feet of decking around the pool.
