Peace of Mind Only a Pool Safety Cover Can Provide
All PCS automatic safety covers are listed with UL and tested to meet or exceed ASTM standards. Simply put, covering your swimming pool with an ASTM certified autocover seals the pool on all sides and does not allow your children or pets from even seeing the water let alone being able to get to or into the water.
Kids and pets LOVE water. Being able to “see” the water makes kids and pets curious and draws them to it. By removing their view or enticement of seeing the water and then sealing the pool on all 4 sides so they cannot even get to the water provides you with a major deterrent and safety tool that far outshines what you get from a fence, pool alarm, or any other type of pool cover.
It has been shown and substantiated by many testimonials from all the automatic swimming pool cover manufacturers over the past 50 years… sealing the pool closed, basically isolating the pool water from the pool deck, helps ensure the safety of your children and pets from drowning when your pool isn’t in use and no one is there to supervise.
This equates to incredible peace of mind with most people, because as per the CDC, drowning is the leading cause of death in children under 4 and the second leading cause of death in children under 14. (2013 CDC (center for disease control) released study results)
An ASTM certified automatic swimming pool cover can typically withstand hundreds of pounds of weight per square foot.
Peace of mind comes when you have an automatic pool cover
With a Pool Cover Specialists® pool cover, we’ve tested our cover systems and fabric to be able to withstand thousands of pounds of direct pressure on the cover. What this means to you is…if anyone, a child, adult or even a pet were to walk, crawl or fall on top of your automatic swimming pool cover from Pool Cover Specialists® by accident when no one is around, there is little to no chance of drowning in the pool. Peace of mind comes when you have an automatic pool cover and can’t be around to supervise your pool. That’s when, in the back of your mind, you’ll know that those around your pool whether pets or people, are pretty safe. This kind of reassurance doesn’t have a price tag, and can also protect you from possible liability.
Pays for Itself in 2.5 Years on Average for a Heated Pool
When your pool isn’t covered, whether it’s an indoor or outdoor pool, especially if it’s heated…you are losing money and water. An uncovered pool loses both water and heat due to evaporation. This means you are wasting energy, water, and chemicals, and it is all just going up into the atmosphere when you aren’t using your pool.
This table with data from the US Department of Energy, shows the potential savings from using an automatic safety cover.
These savings are so great that they end up paying for your automatic pool cover in a matter of 2-3 years depending upon the size of your pool. To be exact, the energy savings alone can be as high as 85% of what you are currently spending, and a pool cover can stop up to 90% of evaporation.
