A SOLAR SAFE POOL COVER offers you a great alternative to pool safety nets and pool safety fencing. It can provide you with safety for your swimming area as well as provide you with many cost saving benefits.
Pool Fences are good, but a Solar Safe Pool Covers are better!
Most people are trained to think that pool safety means a pool safety fence. Pool fencing is a great item to help stop children from falling into a swimming pool but the facts show that about 20% of the child drowning incidents each year happened in pools that had a fence. That means as a whole they are 80% effective. Is 80% effective good enough for your family? Whether the pool fence is in disrepair, the gate not latched properly or the child figures out how to climb the fence, inquisitive children find their way past pool safety fences. Many people fall into a false sense of security thinking that since they have a fence that makes the pool child-proof.
When many people think of a solar pool cover they think of the inexpensive solar/blue bubble plastic covers that you cut with a pair of scissors to fit your pool. While these covers can add some heat to your pool, they don’t offer the many benefits of the PowerLock Pool Cover.
Tests have shown that the Solar Safe Pool cover will add more heat to your pool water than the solar/blue bubble type covers. It will never clog up your filter with “fish scales” (little pieces of the plastic bubbles) as the bubble covers do when they’ve been in the Arizona sun for just a little while.
The PowerLock Pool Cover also functions as a safety cover, safely keeping children and pets out of the pool water. A bubble cover, on the other hand, can actually envelope a child or even an adult who falls on top of the cover, making it extremely difficult to get out of the water without help.
Removing dirt, leaves and debris from the PowerLock Cover before taking it off the pool is easily done with your pool brush or even a leaf blower. While a blue bubble cover may initially keep some leaves and debris out of the pool, it is difficult to take the blue bubble cover off the pool without dumping most of the leaves into the water. And a PowerLock Pool cover won’t blow away in the wind like blue bubble covers easily can.
Dear Solar Safe Pool Covers,
“I was very happy with the effectiveness of the cover keeping dust, dirt and other debris out of the pool. This is the main reason I bought the cover and was totally satisfied in this area.”

At Solar Safe Pool Covers we believe that every pool that has an exposure to little children should have at least one barrier of protection and multiple barriers are preferred. Our pool covers meet the national American Standard Testing and Measures ( ASTM) standard F 1346-91. This standard for pool covers requires that the cover supports at least 485 pounds (two adults and one child) to safely walk on the cover in case a child may accidentally get on the cover. As you can tell by the pictures on this page, we greatly exceed that weight limit. Our special brass anchors allow for complete comfort in knowing that if attached properly the pool cover will not allow a child to have access to pool water.

Extends Swim Season
The Solar Safe Pool Cover is a passive solar heater, helping to convert sunlight into heat for your pool water. This can allow you to swim earlier in the spring and later in the fall than you would in an uncovered pool. Independent lab tests have shown that the Solar Safe Pool Cover adds more heat to your pool than the solar/blue bubble covers you often see in pool stores.
The PowerLock Pool Cover absorbs heat from the sun, and transfers it to the top few inches of water in your pool. To maximize the heat gain, circulate the pool water with your pool pump and filter during the time the cover is exposed to maximum sunlight. Generally, this means filtering your pool for 2 to 4 hours between about 11 AM and 3 PM, depending on when your pool receives the most sunlight.
If you don’t wish to increase the heat in your pool, run your pool pump only when there is no sunlight on the PowerLock Pool Cover.
If you have a supplemental gas pool heater or heat pump, the Solar Safe Pool Cover can help to reduce your fuel costs, primarily by reducing heat loss at night and by reducing evaporation from the water surface.

Spend less time cleaning your pool and more time enjoying it!
A Solar Safe Pool Cover keeps your pool cleaner with less effort. The solid vinyl with polyester mesh core fabric keeps dirt, leaves and debris out of your pool water. Before removing the pool cover, simply use your pool brush to sweep the leaves and dirt to one end or side of the pool cover where it can easily be picked up and thrown away, much easier than cleaning handfuls of wet leaves from your skimmer and backwashing your filter. Or you can use your portable leaf blower to clear off the pool cover in just minutes, instead of spending hours weekly cleaning your pool and filter system.
Summer dust storms or “haboobs” will no longer mean hours of pool cleaning afterward, only a few minutes to clear off the cover before you can use the pool again!
The solid cover keeps sunlight out of the pool, so it slows the breakdown of chlorine and other pool chemicals. And algae can’t grow without sunlight, so you’ll never have to worry about your pool water turning green when the pool cover is on the pool. While using the pool, still keep all your chemicals at the correct level, but you’ll find that you usually will have to add less chemicals to keep the levels balanced.
Shutdown or Hibernate Your Pool!
You can reduce or eliminate your maintenance, filtration, and chemical use for months at a time, or even FOREVER if you want, with a Solar Safe Pool Cover.
Many pool owners don’t use their pools for several months at a time, whether it’s during the winter months when the pool is too cold, or when they are gone for several months at any time of the year. An uncovered pool still requires regular filtration, cleaning, and chemicals, even during times that it is not being used.
Some pool owners no longer use their pools at all, but feel they have to either continue to maintain the pool, or fill it in. Filling in a pool can be very expensive, has to be disclosed to future buyers, and lowers the value of your home.
A Solar Safe Pool Cover allows you to shut down, or hibernate, your pool for a few weeks, for a season, or even forever if you wish. The solid vinyl with polyester mesh core fabric keeps dirt, leaves and debris out of your pool water. The pool cover reduces evaporation by up to 95%, so you won’t be constantly adding water. Also, the solid cover keeps sunlight out of the pool, so it won’t break down the chlorine and other pool chemicals. And algae can’t grow without sunlight, so you’ll never have to worry about your pool water turning green when the pool cover is on the pool. more.....
