Why In-Ground Swimming

Safety Covers Need to Fit Properly

  A properly installed safety swimming pool cover is a durable cover which will give many years of reliable use with a minimum of maintenance, and it is important to choose your cover - and the installer - carefully. 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.

Properly Fitted Safety Covers Cost Less

To say that a properly fitted cover costs less seems contradictory, considering that the purchase price of a custom fitted safety cover (except for stock shapes and sizes) is substantially higher than a simple rectangle.  But the truth is, pool safety cover manufacturers intend for their covers to last 10 to 15 years, and some are even serviceable for as long as 20 years.  In the long run, if you can buy a rectangular cover from a major cover manufacturer for $1000, and it lasts 3 or 4 years, or a properly fitted cover for $1500 from the same manufacturer, and it lasts 15 years, you are money way ahead to pay the extra cost of the properly fitted cover.  But, again, safety is the most important thing.

Fitted Covers Look Better

    I have a customer who lives in a nice neighborhood, and has a really nicely manicured yard, a beautiful Celebrity pool, with beautiful landscaping all around the pool.  He has about 3 1/2  feet of stamped concrete around most of the pool, and about 7 feet on the house side, which is right outside his patio doors and family room windows.  His yard is just beautiful...  for about four months out of the year.  Then, in September, he winterizes the pool.  A few years back, some pool company made him a "great deal" on a solid cover with drain panels that they had allegedly ordered for someone else who didn't pay for it.  This cover extends across the stamped concrete, by about 6 feet on the house side of the pool, and has worn off the finish on the deck.  The opposite two corners go beyond the deck, and he uses tent stakes to hold those corners in the middle of the flower beds.  The steps and cuddle seat are covered with plywood, and the straps have ropes tied to them to make them reach the concrete.  Because there is a raised wall on one side, the cover cannot be pulled tight, and the drain panels are actually under water.  The pool is a swamp every spring, and he pays us big bucks to clear it up.  For 2/3 of the year, his beautiful back yard looks just awful!  It will cost more to fix the decking than it would have cost to have a beautiful, custom fitted cover.  While I do understand that people sometimes do what they have to do, the pool company should be ashamed of themselves for selling this cover to this man.  Not to dwell on the subject again, but I might also mention that this cover is UNSAFE!

Rectangular covers

Rectangular swimming pool covers should only be used for rectangular pools, because an incorrectly fitted cover will wear prematurely, and is not considered safe.  There are standard, rectangle based shapes, including  Grecian,  which are "stock" sizes, with or without step extensions.  If a stock cover size is exactly the correct fit for your pool, that's good.  They are generally less expensive, and ship very quickly, because they are already "made and waiting".  But if your pool has cutouts or variances, your new safety cover will need to be custom made for your pool.  Custom rectangles take a little longer, and cost a little more.  Rectangle based  swimming pool safety covers are manufactured for approximately 12" overlap.  It is best to have at least 3 feet of concrete all the way around the pool since the anchors are set  30" to 32" from the edge of the pool.

    For contoured , or "custom" shaped  pools, ("kidney" or oval shaped pools, for example) your pool professional can measure the pool by triangulation, and  install a perfectly fitted cover, which will give many years of attractive protection.   Form fitted covers, as they are called, are made with the straps closer together, and that is part of why they are much more expensive.   Form fitted safety covers are manufactured with 15" - 18" overlap, so it's better if your apron is wider, but 3' is enough to properly install the cover, without using short springs.
