Does the Winter Pool Cover come with a Warranty?
A pool cover is a special type of cover that provides both safety and maintenance benefits. The cover is supported by extremely strong straps allowing the cover to hold the weight of several adults (although you would only walk on the cover in event of an emergency). Pool covers are also known as “mesh pool cover”, “winter pool cover”, “pool safety cover” and “safety pool cover” but they are all referring to the same product. The name varies depending on the area of the country you are in.
When Las Vegas winters hit, your pool can be easily covered and “winterized” by covering the pool with the cover. When the swimming season starts again, the cover is removed, along with any debris that has accumulated on top of the cover.
Safety pool covers are one of the safest options when it comes to swimming pool safety. They are exceptionally strong, very secure and meet ASTM standard for swimming pool safety covers. ASTM compliant means that the cover has been tested by an independent third-party laboratory to verify that it meets or exceeds the specifications outlined by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Most inspectors and jurisdictions reference the ASTM standard.
The strength comes primarily from the straps that stretch across the pool and anchor into the pool deck. The straps are spaced about every 3-5 feet and create a grid. This material is very strong and weather resistant.
The first step in the process, after you place an order for the pool safety cover, is for the technician to come and measure your pool area. Depending on the shape and complexity of your pool, anywhere from a dozen to a few hundred measurements are taken using a measuring concept called triangulation. These measurements are then used to create a custom made cover designed specifically for your pool. Once your cover is ready, an installation date will be scheduled and the final installation of the anchors can be completed.
The installation itself will only take a few hours. When the pool cover installation is complete, you will be given a demonstration on how to remove and replace the cover.
Safe Defenses offers safety pool covers in three colors; Blue, Green and Tan.
You are drilling holes into your deck and mistakes cannot be easily fixed. Therefore, we always recommend that you have a professional perform the installation. This preserves the warranty and ensures that you will not only have a safe pool cover, but also one that looks good too.
