Swimming Pool Safety Covers Care and Maintenance

Oklahoma City Area including OKC, Bethany, Edmond, Moore, Mustang, El Reno, Yukon, Midwest City, Del City

   A-Pro Services offers expert measurement and installation, and sales of swimming pool safety covers in central Oklahoma. We have created this website to help those who are considering the purchase of a new or replacement safety swimming pool cover, and this page is about caring for your cover to get the most useful life from it..

   A properly installed safety swimming pool cover is a durable cover which will give many years of reliable use with a minimum of maintenance, but the little things do need to be tended to.

 

 

 

 

Basic Swimming Pool Safety Cover  Care and Maintenance

    Once properly fitted and installed,  swimming pool safety covers require little maintenance, especially mesh covers, but there are a few things to keep in mind when caring for your cover, to increase it's longevity and assure it's continued safety protection.

 

Proper Safety Cover Adjustment

   When your new cover is installed, it will be properly tightened, and adjusted for correct spring tension.  As with all textiles, the new material may stretch slightly during the first few weeks.  After that time, is would be a good idea to recheck the spring tension, so that the cover remains properly stretched.  Each spring should be adjusted so that is is 2/3 to 3/4 compressed.  Usually, your installer will tighten the straps so that they are about 75% compressed, and they will relax a little, so, often there is no adjustment needed.  If  the spring tension on one cover strap needs to be adjusted, it is usually best to also check the other end, and divide the needed adjustment equally at each end, to keep the intersecting straps straight, and the stresses even. 

Cover Anchor Maintenance

There is little to do with the safety cover anchor, but a little goes a long way!  First off, keep them clean!  Every few years, it's not a bad idea to unscrew the anchor inserts completely, and flush, vacuum, or blow out any sand and dirt that may have gotten into the threaded receivers.  If you use water to flush them out, be sure to remove all water before putting the anchor insert back in.  I would also recommend that each spring and fall,  you should   lubricate the anchors with a quick spray of  WD-40 or some similar product, or a couple of drops of 3-in-1 oil, or any light anti-seize.  This will make sure that the anchors remain easy to raise and lower, so you can do it quickly and easily with your cordless drill, and that the anchors remain firmly in the concrete.

Safety Cover Cleaning and Storage

    Mesh covers are really easy, because, as a rule, you just let them dry, roll them up, put them in the bag, and put them away.  Of course, you don't want to roll them up with a bunch of sticks, leaves, or other debris, so I usually blow them of with a leaf  blower while they are still on the pool.  I like to put a little note in to remind me how the cover was rolled (ex:  unroll from shallow to the right of steps).  This avoids having to wrestle the cover to turn it around in the event that you get it backward,  and helps prevent damage to the cover from getting snagged in the process.  Usually, I don't raise the anchors (other than the corners) on the side where I roll out the cover, until I have stretched the cover over the pool.  This prevents them from accidentally getting snagged while rolling the cover out. 

    Solid covers really should be cleaned and thoroughly dried before being stored.  Since the fabric doesn't breathe, any moisture left on the cover is an invitation for mold and mildew.  The materials used to make safety covers are pretty well resistant,  but considering the cost of a good safety cover, it is wise to keep it as healthy and attractive as possible for as long as you can!

    Safety covers should be stored indoors, in a location that is rodent resistant.  Mice will eat or destroy anything!  I once left a brand new mesh cover in the barn, and the mice ate through the box and chewed on the cover!  (I hope they choked on it!)  Also, when taking the cover out of the bag after it has been stored, watch for spiders!
