Maintenance and Care For Safety Covers!

By Debbie
Safety Covers  must always stretch tightly across the swimming pool. After the initial installation, some stretching may occur. The springs on the safety cover should be compressed 50%, you may need to readjust  the  straps. The water level in your pool can not go below 18” from the top, as a safety cover is designed to set down on the water with the weight of snow and ice. Without having the proper water level, the  safety cover will stretch too far, placing undue strain on the cover and voiding the warranty.

Caring for your Winter Mesh Cover

By Greg
  Typically during the winter months, homeowners do not have to worry about their pools quite as much. With the cold temperatures and lack of sunlight, algae tends not to grow. With this in mind, a lot of pool-people tend to wait until late into the spring to open their pool. This may save you a few bucks, but it also gives those pesky spores time to grow. With a solid safety cover its usually fine to wait, but if you have a mesh cover or poly cover, there are a few minor steps you can take to ensure your pool is nice & pristine upon opening. Every few weeks pull up a corner of your cover. Depending on your pool's size, put in a few pounds of shock. Next, take your brush & brush the chlorine out toward the center of the pool. Doing so will circulate the water and spread the chlorine throughout the pool. Every time you do this, do it on the opposite corner.
