In many parts of the country, it is time to think about closing your pool and/or spa. While thereis a myriad of options to choose from, a LOOP-LOC mesh or solid cover will work great on any inground pool or spa—regardless of its shape or size.

LOOP-LOC’s mesh  are designed and manufactured from 100 percent polypropylene and made with super dense mesh. This combination of materials blocks virtually all sunlight—while still allowing rain and melting snow to easily drain through.

Obviously, the safety of your family, friends, and pets is of the utmost importance. LOOP-LOC’s mesh pool covers meet and exceed ASTM safety standards that mandate a cover must be able to support a certain amount of weight, not permit gaps that a child or pet could squeeze through, and remove standing water. Additionally, the company made sure they underwent extensive outside testing through Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) and earned the U.L. seal of approval for safety swimming pool covers.

Strong, sturdy materials are used to secure these covers to the deck firmly. Heavy-duty, non-corrosive, type 302 grade stainless steel springs provide superior weight-bearing accuracy. Brass anchors recess flush with the deck when the cover is removed. Together, these two items place a solid “lock” on the pool—preventing children and pets from entering the water. Plus, LOOP-LOC’s mesh covers utilize the CABLE-LOC™, and patented GAPGUARD® and PROTECT-A-GAP™ Child Safety Intrusion Barriers, as well as the Aqua-Loc® zipper treatment as a method to close the gap created when a pool includes raised obstructions located at the cover’s edge.

The covers are also supported with quality materials. They are sewn with a polyester-bonded thread that is 30 percent stronger in thread size—producing a higher margin of safety in all seams. Double perimeter webbing and double-thick straps provide the covers with an incredibly high break strength. Plus, the large X-tacking on LOOP-LOC straps is sewn manually for precise placement and maximum strength. The chafe strips are manufactured with exclusively virgin material—not “regrind”—which tends to stain decking. Non-corrosive aluminum tips are double-notched for stability.

Would you rather block the sun completely from your pool or spa? If so, LOOP-LOC’s ULTRA-LOC III solid cover is for you. It is constructed of a premium-coated vinyl material with enhanced, 100 percent rip-stop scrim.There is no need to pump or scrub it, and it is much lighter in weight than typical solid covers, which makes it easy install and remove. It comes in green, blue, or tan and is sold with an automatic pump. The pump must be used to meet ASTM safety cover standards.

Something that may not have occurred to you is how polished your pool will look with a LOOP-LOC cover! It will not take away from the beauty of your poolor backyard. Plant some mums or marigolds and watch the orange, yellow, red, pink, bronze, or purple hues complement your cover. It doesn’t matter what color you opted for—green, tan, gray, blue, or black—it will match these gorgeous fall flowers and the falling leaves.
