FAQWhat is a Safety Cover?
A Safety Cover is made of UV treated polypropylene mesh or solid vinyl, that's pulled taut across the pool, and is secured with straps to anchors that are installed around the pool's perimeter.

Is it easy to remove and store the cover?
Typical sized safety covers go on and remove in about 15 to 20 minutes after initial installation using the provided tensioning tool. Each cover comes with a mesh drawstring storage bag. A mesh safety cover is fan folded to a size small enough to fit in the storage bag. The bag is then hung or stood upright in a dry, secure place until ready for use in the Fall.
