Safety cover Safety pool covers are solid covers that are designed to be anchored down and keep everything from loose debris to kids and pets out of a pool. None
Safety net Safety nets are designed with gaps too small for a child to fall through, but too big to allow efficient balancing or movement. None
Solar cover A solar pool covers utilize the sun's energy to generate heat for the pool. These covers float freely on the pool surface and are designed primarily for heating the pool and prolonging the pool usage season. They are not the most efficient covers for keeping debris out of a pool and are not considered a safety cover. None
Solar rings Solar rings are designed to provide heat for a pool similar to a standard solar pool cover, but are more adept at passing heat to deeper parts of the pool. They can also be turned over when the pool temperature is ideal, enabling them to act as barriers to sunlight that will evaporate water and pool chemicals. None
Unknown Unknown None
Winter cover Winter pool covers are designed to protect a pool from debris as well as other unwanted pool contaminators. While many winter covers offer features such as thermal protection or coloring to help guard against algae growth, they do often vary in weave thickness which can be a determinate in the durability and overall quality of the cover.
