    Safety Cover Features and Benefits

    What is a Safety Cover?

    Superior Protection for Your Pool & Your Family!

    A safety cover is a mesh or solid vinyl winter cover that's pulled taut across the pool, and is secured with straps to anchors that are installed around the pool's perimeter. In addition to preventing leaves, dirt & debris from getting into your pool water while the pool is closed, a Safety Cover is designed to prevent accidental submersion, providing protection for your family, neighbors, pets and wildlife.

    • Superior Protection for Conscientious Pool Owners
    • Available for all Inground & Some Decked Above Ground Pools
    • For Winter Shutdown & Extended Periods of Non-Use during Swim Season
    • A More Tailored, Attractive Look than Standard Winter Covers can Provide
    • Pays for Itself by Lasting for Years!

    Note: Safety covers need approximately 36" of concrete decking, wood, pagers or other suitable rock around the perimeter of the pool

    A More Tailored "Look"

    safety cover provides tailored look to your poolMany pool owners prefer the more tailored, finished look that a Safety Cover provides during the off-season. Standard winter covers simply can't give you this benefit.

    How to Select a Safety Cover

    Safety Covers offer the best possible protection for your pool during the off-season, give you a much neater & more tailored look than is possible with a standard winter cover, and a safety cover can last for years. Plus, Safety Covers do exactly what their name implies - provide an extra measure of safety & peace of mind by guarding against accidental submersion. They're the perfect choice for conscientious pool owners.

    Selecting the right Safety Cover is very important. It will ensure full warranty coverage and the longest life for your cover, plus it makes installing, removing & storing your Safety Cover quick, easy and convenient. Consider the following factors as you make your decision. And if you have any questions along the way, don't hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-983-7665. Our friendly team of Pool Experts will be happy to assist you.

    What Spacing is Best for your Pool, Yard and Climate?

    Safety Covers are manufactured with either 5'x 5' or 3'x 3' spacing:

    With 5'x 5' spacing, straps are placed approximately every 4 - 6 feet around the perimeter of your pool. This is more than adequate for pools of most sizes & shapes, and for pools in areas with minimal to average snowfall during the winter. All of our in-stock Safety Covers come standard with 5'x 5' spacing.

    With 3'x 3' spacing, straps are placed approximately 2.5 - 3.5 feet apart around the perimeter of your pool. This provides greater strength than with 5'x 5' spacing, and is necessary for large pools, free-form pools and for pools in areas that receive heavy snowfall. Safety Covers with 3'x3' spacing are available by custom order.

    Does your Pool Have a Step Extension? safety cover with step section

    If you have a walk-in step extension on the end or side of your pool, you MUST purchase a Safety Cover that is specially made for that application! DO NOT be talked into thinking you can simply purchase a larger rectangular Safety Cover without the step extension, because you will likely void your warranty, and the Cover WILL FAIL. Why?

    • Safety covers with step extensions have special vinyl pads that are sewn into the material in strategic high-stress locations where the step is located. As the weight of winter ice and snow accumulates on the Cover, these pads prevent the Cover from ripping.
    • On most Safety Covers, there is a rubber wear strip sewn into the binding around the pool perimeter. These wear strips extend about 18-24" from the Cover edge, protecting the coping on your pool from wearing through the Safety Cover.

    Our online selection of Safety Covers includes many with center, left and right step extensions. If you don't see your size shown, use our online Quick Quote for a fast, free quote on a value-priced safety cover with a custom step extension. Then, order it online - it's that easy!

    Do you need a Stock or Custom Safety Cover?

    Safety Covers are available in all shapes and sizes. The most popular are commonly referred to as "standard" or "stock" - meaning that Cover manufacturers produce these Safety Covers in advance, and make them available to us before the start of Cover season. SPP carries a large selection of stock Safety Covers, which means we can help more pool owners find a quality Safety Cover that fits your pool, and can save you time & money. The vast majority of our customers can utilize a stock Safety Cover for their pool. But don't worry - we make custom Safety Covers for many pool owners too.

    Solid Safety Pool Covers for Inground Swimming Pools

    A Solid Safety Cover is an inground winter cover made from a solid vinyl material, that's specially designed to be pulled tight across the pool and secured with straps to Safety Cover anchors that are installed around the pool's perimeter. A Solid Safety Cover differs from a traditional "tarp style" solid winter cover because in addition to keeping out leaves, dirt & debris, a Solid Safety Cover also prevents accidental submersion & drowning. In the unlikely event that anyone (or anything - like a pet or area wildlife) ventures out onto the Safety Cover while it's on the pool, they will be fully supported by the Safety Cover. To protect your family, neighbors, pets & wildlife, you simply cannot beat the protection of a Safety Cover.

    For proper installation, every Safety Cover requires approximately 36" of concrete decking, wood, pavers or other suitable rock around the perimeter of the pool - so there is a solid surface for the anchors to be set within.

    The main advantage of a Solid Safety Cover is that the material will prevent even the finest particles from entering the pool, which keeps your pool water debris-free over the winter. A Solid Safety Cover also prevents sunlight from penetrating through the cover material, which prevents the growth of algae while the pool is covered. With a Solid Safety Cover, rainwater and snowmelt are kept off the Cover through the use of a drain panel (a mesh panel(s) that's built into some Solid Safety Covers) or a Pool Cover Pump.

    At SPP, we offer a wide selection of Solid Safety Pool Covers, including:

    • Aqua Master Solid Safety Covers
    • Hyper-Light Solid Safety Covers
    • Performance Plus Solid Safety Covers
    • Meyco PermaGuard Solid Safety Covers

    Mesh Safety Pool Covers for Inground Swimming Pools

    A Mesh Safety Cover is a winter cover in a tightly-woven mesh material that's designed to be stretched across the pool, and secured with straps to anchors installed around the pool's perimeter. In order to be installed as a Safety Cover, your pool must have approximately 36" or concrete decking, wood, pavers or other suitable rock around the perimeter - so there is a solid surface to set the anchors in.

    A Safety Cover is different than a traditional "tarp style" winter cover because in addition to protecting the pool from dirt & debris, a Safety Cover also prevents accidental submersion & drowning should a person or pet venture onto the Safety Cover while it's on the pool.

    A mesh safety pool cover features material that is generally lighter and easier to handle than solid Safety Cover material, so you will have an easier time putting your new Safety Cover on and taking it off your pool. Mesh Safety Cover material will keep out larger debris & dirty, but still allows rainwater and snow melt to seep into the pool, saving on resources and eliminating the need for a cover pump to drain standing water before the Safety Cover is removed.

    Since we're a preferred partner with some of the finest Mesh Safety Cover manufacturers in the industry, we can get you the best possible price on a new mesh Safety Cover. SPP offers free shipping on every Mesh Safety Cover order delivered within the continental U.S. - no matter the size or weight!

    Don't see what you need online? Give our Safety Cover Experts a call at 1-800-983-7665 and we can help you with a custom made Mesh Safety Cover in any size & shape, to fit your pool perfectly.

    Mesh material is generally lighter and easier to handle than solid material, which means you'll have an easier time getting your new Safety Cover on and off your pool. Mesh material also allows rainwater and melting snow to pass through the Cover into the pool, saving on resources and eliminating the need for a cover pump.

    Standard Mesh

    Traditionally, the best selling Cover material in the industry. Standard mesh is an "open-weave" 2-ply material that offers approximately 92% shade - meaning that only about 8% of natural sunlight is allowed to enter through the Cover, which minimizes algae build-up. Our Standard Mesh Safety Covers include Meycolite Mesh, SPP Value-Mesh and Mesh Safety Covers for Onground/Decked Above Ground Pools.

    Tighter Weave Mesh

    Increasing in popularity, tighter-weave Safety Covers offer around 99% shade, for virtually no algae growth over the course of the off-season. Also, this tighter mesh is better than standard mesh at filtering out debris, so your pool water will be cleaner in the spring than what you would typically get with a standard mesh Cover. Our line of Pro-Mesh Safety Covers and Loop-Loc Mesh Safety Covers are both manufactured using this newer material.

    SPP Value-Mesh Safety Covers SPP value mesh safety pool covers

    Our Value-Mesh Safety Cover includes all the quality features of the major manufacturers' Safety Covers, without their high price! It's constructed using a 2-ply polyester mesh material that resists rot, mildew & damage from UV rays and chemicals.

    Meycolite Mesh Safety Covers meycolite mesh safety pool cover

    Choosing Mesh vs. Solid Safety Covers

    Compare Materials and Benefits of Each Type

    Mesh Safety Cover Material

    Solid Safety Cover Material

    safety cover made of mesh material safety cover made of solid material

    Deciding on the type of material is an important step in choosing the Safety Cover that's right for your pool, your situation:

    Mesh Material

    Mesh material is generally lighter & easier to handle than solid material. This means an easier time getting the Safety Cover on and off your pool. Mesh material will also allow water from rain & melting snow to pass through the Cover into the pool, so you won't have to pump off standing water in the spring. In addition, mesh material is generally less expensive than solid material. Mesh material is available in Standard Mesh or Tighter-Weave options.

    Solid Material

    Solid material's big advantage is that it will prevent sunlight & fine particles from entering the pool. This helps keep the pool clean over the winter by preventing dirt and algae accumulation. With a Cover made from solid material, water is kept off the Cover either through use of a drain panel (mesh panel built into the Cover) or a cover pump. Solid material is available in traditional weight and lightweight options:

    Traditional Weight Solid Vinyl - This was the first solid Safety Cover material in the industry. It is made from a tough, long-lasting vinyl laminated Polyester fabric that eliminates 100% of sunlight, and blocks debris so your pool water will be clean and clear in the spring. Traditional weight solid Covers are ideal for pool owners who open their pool in the late spring, or who have large amounts of leaves and debris near the pool's perimeter. These Safety Covers are typically heavier than Mesh or Lightweight Solid Covers, so two or more people may be needed for installation and removal. Our line of Performance Plus Safety Covers are made using this material, and are offered in two styles: with a drain panel, or 100% solid with a cover pump included.

    Lightweight Solid Material - This material is usually about 30% lighter than what's used for traditional weight solid Safety Covers. These Covers are typically PVC coated polyester fabric materials that are stronger than typical vinyl Covers, and are easier to put on and take off. They include a drain panel that helps remove standing water while keeping out the vast majority of debris and leaves. Our Aqua Master Safety Covers, Hyper-Light Safety Covers, and Loop-Loc Safety Covers are made using this lighter material.

    Replacing an Existing Safety Cover

    replacing an existing safety pool cover

    Safety Covers feature brass anchors that are installed in concrete patios or pavers around a pool. By following the steps below, we can easily create a replacement Safety Cover for you, with Cover straps that line up exactly with your existing anchors.

    By Using the Serial Number on your Existing Safety Cover

    If your old Safety Cover has a serial # attached, simply give us that number and the manufacturer's name, and we'll contact you with a quote for a replacement Cover made to the exact same specifications.

    By Using Manufacturer's Name

    If your old Safety Cover doesn't have a serial #, but you know the manufacturer's name, we can usually get you a replacement Cover with the exact same strap layout. Typically, we'll be able to locate the dealer's name where your Cover was purchased, the date of the original purchase and the customer name associated with the order. If you can supply us this information, we can do it!

    By Using the Safety Cover Itself

    If you have the old Safety Cover with the straps still attached, a new Safety Cover can be manufactured by using the old Cover as a template. Simply give us a call to help arrange shipping of the old Cover. In this case, we do NOT need the hardware (springs, buckles etc.) to be shipped with the Cover.

    If you cannot use any of the three options above, you may need to provide A-B measurements for the anchor locations (not for the pool). We'll make every effort to get you an exact replacement Safety Cover. In these cases, however, we cannot guarantee that every strap will perfectly match every anchor location.
