What is a Mesh Pool Cover?
All-Safe® pool covers are designed to provide safety and to keep leaves and debris from entering your pool. Pool covers are held down with springs and anchors that are drilled into the pool deck. Pool safety covers are typically available in mesh and in solid fabrics.
All-Safe safety pool covers utilize a mesh fabric that allows rainwater to pass through. All-Safe mesh swimming pool covers feature double-stitched webbing, an easy-to-adjust stainless steel spring system, and non-corrosive brass anchors. Our swimming pool cover material is fabricated to withstand the elements and will not dry or crack as it ages. Each of pool covers includes all the necessary hardware, including an extra long allen key with handle and stainless steel installation tool.
Our mesh swimming pool safety covers are designed for both safety and maintenance. They are chosen, most often, by pool owners who use their pool infrequently or who wish to close the pool down after the swim season has passed. Keeping the pool clean and reducing maintenance while establishing a secure barrier is the key advantage of a pool cover.
From simple to complex pools, you are assured of a properly designed swimming pool cover that fits perfectly every time. Free form designs, rock formations, waterfalls, raised walls, and elevation changes are handled with ease.
Mesh Safety Pool Cover
When mesh swimming pool covers are installed properly, children and pets cannot fall or slip into the pool. The tightly woven mesh in our swimming pool covers allows water to filter through while screening out leaves and debris, and minimizes the sunlight that passes through the swimming pool cover, therefore reducing the springtime algae growth in your swimming pool.
- Tight-fitting safety barrier.
- Prevents unwanted entry.
- Reduces maintenance.
- Keeps pool free of debris.
- Reduces evaporation.
Our mesh pool covers can be custom-made to fit the exact shape of your pool. This type of pool safety cover will easily support the weight of a child and two or three adults in the event a rescue effort is necessary. The mesh fabric allows rainwater to pass through so that it does not collect on top of the pool cover.
Mesh pool covers are great for closing the pool down in the winter but are not ideal when the pool is going to be used frequently. If safety is the main concern, a preferred choice would be the pool safety net. Mesh safety pool covers are very strong but can take several minutes to remove and replace and often require two people to handle.
A typical mesh swimming pool cover can be removed in about 20 minutes and replacement requires about 30 minutes. Experience using the swimming pool cover reduces the time and two people working together can make the job much easier.
Is a Mesh Pool Cover Right for You?
The tightly woven mesh in a winter pool cover allows water to filter through while screening out leaves and debris. An All-Safe® pool cover remains dry and the leaves and debris simply blow away. A mesh pool cover is ideal for owners who close down their pool during the winter months.
While one should not walk on a mesh pool cover unless absolutely necessary, they are strong enough to support the weight of several adults. This type of pool cover, in fact, has been shown supporting the weight of a small elephant.
Mesh swimming pool safety covers are not ideally suited to pools with extensive rock or waterfall features. Although a mesh cover can often be installed on this type of pool, we do not recommend it. Another challenging situation for mesh swimming pool safety covers is a vanishing edge pool. For this type of pool we recommend pool fences or pool nets.
We do not recommend a pool cover for those who use their pool frequently as removal and replacement of a pool cover can be quite time consuming. Typically this type of pool cover is used in areas where the winter months bring snow and force the closure of the swimming pool. A mesh pool cover is ideal for “winterizing” your pool. If safety is the main concern, and leaves and debris are not an issue, your best option may be a pool fence. A pool fence allows for convenient pool access for those who use their swimming pool regularly.
