Safety for children and pets, the major concern for every pool owner, was the motivating factor in Meyco's development of the mesh cover back in 1956. Decades of improvements and four U.S. patents later, Meyco continues to offer an outstanding version of the original mesh safety cover. Meyco covers exceed all ASTM standards for safety as well as many local safety requirements
When properly secured to the pool decking, the cover's crisscrossed webbing holds taut across the pool in "trampoline style". Meyco covers can not blow off in a windstorm, are difficult to remove without the safety installation rod, and if that weren't enough, the straps are capable of withstanding over 4000 lbs. of tension. Now that's strong!
Safety covers eliminate the need to pump off dangerous surface water since rain water drains through. Leaves and debris on the cover dry and blow off. With proper water treatment there are no algae problems. The only maintenance required for using a safety cover is to prevent the water level from falling lower than 18" from deck level during the winter.
Tailored to fit any size or shape pool, the standard forest green fine mesh is handsome in appearance as well as maintenance free. The cover is also available in blue and black. Non-corrosive solid brass anchors disappear flush with the deck when the cover is removed. The need for unsightly ropes, pillows, pumps and water bags is eliminated.
With more and more pool owners having less and less time on their hands these days, convenience is more important than ever. Safety covers are light in weight, super strong, and can be put on or taken off quickly (installation time for a standard 20'x40' pool cover is about 20 minutes).
Safety vs. Standard Tarp
Safety covers actually cost less per year of use than standard tarp covers! The larger initial investment for the safety cover is much more than compensated for by its longer mesh life and by eliminating the need for water bags, pumps or pillows. The official standard states, "In the case of a pool with a width or diameter greater than 8 ft. from the periphery, the cover shall be able to hold a weight of 485 lbs. (2 adults and 1 child) to permit a rescue operation." In certain unusual circumstances, the weight may be even greater. For example, we have an unsolicited report on file documenting an incident where a Meyco cover prevented an automobile from sinking to the bottom of a pool This dramatically demonstrates the combined effect of the pool water acting in conjunction with the cover to support excessive weight.
Meyco covers are made of the finest materials available....the best polypropylene fabric, the strongest thread and the most durable hardware. Each cover is designed with deep channeled abrasion strips for cover wear protection.
When pool shapes and designs get tough, Meyco comes through like a champ! With numerous advancements in cover design, modern manufacturing techniques and our patented edge cushion "Polygard" Meyco is able to properly design covers for even the most unusual and unique shapes and circumstances (rocks, waterfalls, walls, etc.).
Meyco Products has long been the leader in swimming pool cover manufacturing. From the original concept and design of the safety cover, to the present state-of-the-art cover exceeding ASTM standards, Meyco has developed a fine expertise in designing covers, large and small, simple and complex.
Meyco's outstanding 10-year warranty is offered as a result of high quality materials and workmanship. Meyco covers are built tough and last long.
Meyco's reputation for strong, long-lasting covers goes far past residential pools. Meyco covers are well suited for large pools at motels, clubs and community pools. No pool is too big for a Meyco!
The "best " cover should be secured to the pool with no less than the "best " hardware. That's why Meyco hardware is all non-corrosive solid brass or stainless steel...not plastic!
In addition to the highest quality, a variety of hardware; such as, screw-type, pop-up type and wood deck anchors are available to suit each pool's individual needs as shown below.
