We have created this website to help those who are considering the purchase of a new or replacement safety swimming pool cover, to learn more about the different types of covers, how to choose the right safety cover.

Please consider A-Pro Services. If you purchase a cover through us, we will measure it FREE, to make sure you get a perfect fit, and give you the best possible price for your cover.
We proudly offer Loop-Loc Safety covers, which are second to none in quality, fit, and appearance. But what are the differences?
Loop-Loc offers a SuperDense Mesh, which is the most commonly chosen, because it is light weight, durable, low maintenance, and attractive. The SuperDense mesh safety cover is available in a variety of colors, including the standard green mesh, blue, black, grey, and tan. The mesh cover is so strong, Loop-Loc uses a full-grown African elephant walking on the cover in their advertisements. ("Bubbles" actually ran her tusks through the cover, and it still held up) When You say "I want the cover that holds up an elephant", You're saying "I want a Loop-Loc!"
Loop-Loc also offers solid safety covers, called Ultra-Loc in various colors, They are available in two versions - With drain panels, and without. The drain panels allow water to drain from the cover into the pool so that the cover remains taught and dry. The advantage to the Solid cover is that it blocks out more sunlight, and therefore is better at preventing algae growth. As with the SuperDense mesh, there will usually be a fine layer of silt on the pool floor when opening the pool. The Ultra-Loc without drain panels blocks 100% of sunlight, but, because a safety cover cannot be allowed to have standing water on it, Loop-loc requires the purchase of an automatic cover pump with all solid safety covers without drain panels. The advantages to the Ultra-Loc without drain panels is that the pool remains crystal clear, without silt, and as a bonus, the pool water level remains about the same during the winter, because all the water from the cover is pumped away. Either way, Loop-Loc makes a great swimming pool safety cover, and are well priced!

It's a Safety Cover!
It will if it's a genuine Loop-Loc!
Plastimayd has been a leader in swimming pool liners for many years, and now offers good quality safety covers, both in mesh and solid, with two grades in each type, along with limited color choices. The solid Covers are available with drain panels or automatic pumps. These covers exceed all requirements for Safety Covers, but are a little less expensive, and, in Oklahoma, usually a little quicker in manufacturing and shipping. Sold directly through authorized Plastimayd dealers.
Typically, a rectangular cover will have a 12 inch overlap, and a custom fitted, or "form fit" will have a 15 to 18 inch overlap. The anchors are set about 18 inches from the edge of the cover, which means there needs to be about 3 feet of deck. When there is less than three feet of deck, other manufacturers use short springs or D-rings. Most manufacturers stipulate that if there are more than a certain percentage of short springs or D-rings, the cover is considered as Non-Safe. With Performance's Reduced Deck Mount System, the anchors can be as close as 2 inches to the cover's edge, and still use a full spring. This allows for a much better installation, and leaves us wondering.....Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?
There are many Types of covers, both for in-ground and above ground pools. In addition to the Safety Covers mentioned here for in-ground pools, there are those which are very cheap, and have no safety features at all. They are thin lightweight materials, usually hemmed at the edges, which are held in place with water bags, sand bags, or other weights placed around the edges of the cover. These covers have little strength, but are intended to keep debris out of the pool. There is no protection to keep pets or people from falling into the pool, and the covers usually don't last as long as safety covers. These types of covers are intended only for swimming pools that are well protected by fences or other barriers. Because this type of cover is not permanently attached, the ballast (water tubes, etc) can move when rain or debris gets on the cover. Therefore, manufacturers recommend that the cover lay directly on the water, instead of being stretched tightly. With solid covers, rain water and debris will collect on top of the cover, unless it is removed regularly, using a cover pump. There are also mesh covers of this type, which require floatation devices, to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the pool.
