Inspecting Your Pool Cover

Your swimming pool can be lots of fun for your family and friends, but as a pool owner, it’s your job to be sure that your pool is used responsibly and safely.

Meyco safety covers exceed all ASTM F 1346-91 Standard Performance Specification for Safety Covers. As with any safety product, however, it will only work as intended if you use it as instructed. If you use a Meyco safety cover to keep your pool secure between swim seasons, you should inspect your cover regularly. If the cover appears torn or damaged, then you must STOP using it as a safety cover.

Your state and local authorities may also require a fence or other devices to protect against unauthorized access to your pool. All of these devices are intended to assist supervising adults. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR COMPETENT ADULT SUPERVISION, WHICH MUST BE MAINTAINED WHEN CHILDREN, PETS OR OTHERS ARE IN OR AROUND THE POOL.

When to inspect your Meyco Safety Cover

Meyco recommends the following inspection schedule to be sure that your Meyco cover can continue to serve as a safety cover for your pool:

  • Before removing the cover in the spring

  • Before installing the cover in the winter

  • Every 45-60 days when the cover is on the pool

  • After any major winter weather/storms

  • After any incident that may have impaired the integrity of the cover (IE: fallen limb, deer or other animals/excess debris on cover)


Inspecting Your Cover: Warning Signs

DESPITE THE AGE OF THE COVER OR THE AMOUNT OF TIME LEFT ON THE WARRANTY, these are all signs of a cover that may no longer be considered a safety cover and should be replaced or repaired immediately.
