Out of all the swimming pool covers that you can pick from, a safety swimming pool cover may be the one you want to secure your pool in the offseason (or even during the normal swimming year).
If you have kids, there may be no difficulty that you want a security cover. The retractable pool enclosure is actually a giant trampoline that is securely connected over the pool. These covers are fixed by drilling anchor points into the concrete deck surrounding the pool. The cover is then placed by securing straps to each of these anchor points.
These covers are especially strong. In fact, some of the manufacturer’s ads for them show an elephant being on the middle of a covered pool while other ads show a car which was mistakenly sent onto the pool. The car is half sunk, but the cover is holding strong!
One drawback to these safety covers is that leaves or debris can still get in your pool. This will make your pool a bit of a mess to clean up in the spring, but it’s a little price to pay for safety.
Finally, there are solid safety pool enclosures that blend the virtues of both the winter cover and the protective cover. They are the most expensive kind and even require a pump to prevent water from gathering in the center of the cover, but they will give you with safety and with much clearer water.
The bottom line is that if security is a major concern, these safety swimming pool covers are absolutely worth looking into
