Merlin Solid Safety Pool Cover Features:
Unlike other solid covers, Merlin's tension-secure solid cover combines safety with the complete barrier a vinyl cover provides. The water-resistant solid cover keeps out dirt, dust, and sunlight, which means no algae growth. It also means you open your pool to clean, crystal clear water. The Solid Safety cover uses either an automatic pump or micro-filter panel to remove any standing water. The Window Mesh Drain Panel uses dual layers of micro-mesh material to let water (filtered to 250 microns) pass through. Color is Green only. Cover spacing is 5' x 5' with 12 overlap Professional Protection for Your Family and Your Pool Materials:
Specially formulated, reinforced vinyl for solid covers, or polypropylene cover material for Dura-Mesh covers, both supported by nylon/polypropylene straps. Extension straps are secured to stainless steel tension springs with a stainless steel buckle. Strength: Heavy-duty, triple stitched straps crisscross the pool surface, stretched tight by tension springs anchored in the deck. Although lightweight, Merlin webbing has an Industry Leading Break-Strength, more than 3 times the government standard. Safety is the concern of every pool owner:
By Installing a Merlin Professional Safety Cover, you can be assured that after the run, your family and your pool are protected. Merlin covers are designed to prevent children, pets, or debris from entering your pool and only the proper installation will ensure your cover is secure. Hardware: Highest quality stainless steel tension springs hook over machined-brass anchors set flush in your deck. Anchors lock and unlock easily with a special tool to prevent unauthorized removal. Merlin's 10-year warranty is the longest and strongest for any solid safety pool cover made. You can be sure your family, your pool, and your investment will be safe and secure for years to come. The first 2 years are fully covered, and after the 2nd year, the warranty is pro-rated. Standard Safety Cover Equipment:

A safety cover is a woven mesh or solid vinyl winter cover that can be used on in-ground and above-ground swimming pools. The safety cover is designed to be pulled taut across the swimming pool and secured with straps to anchors that are installed around the perimeter of your swimming pool. Safety covers not only protect your swimming pool water from leaves and debris but also from accidental drowning. What is the difference between Mesh and Solid Safety Covers? Mesh Safety Covers:
The mesh material is generally lighter and easier to handle than solid material, which means you will have an easier time installing or removing the safety cover from your swimming pool. The mesh material also allows rain water and melting snow to drain through the cover into the swimming pool. Solid Safety Covers:
The solid material comes with the advantage of preventing all sunlight and fine particles from entering the swimming pool. This helps to keep your swimming pool water cleaner during winter by preventing dirt and algae accumulation. Because the cover is made from a solid material, a mesh drain panel or a cover pump is needed to drain rain water and melting snow from its surface. Why should I buy a Safety Cover for my swimming pool?
Important Safety Cover Notice:
- Protects your investment during the off-season
- Safeguards your family and pets from accidental drowning
- Saves time and effort when opening and closing your pool
- Saves money in the long run
- Gives a more customized and finished look to your swimming pool
You will need at least 3 feet of concrete all around your pool to accommodate the installation of this safety cover. Customizing a cover to fit any size pool through PoolSupplyWorld can be a very economic option and will ensure a perfect fit. We caution you against trying to save money by purchasing a rectangle cover to fit your free-form pool or 4 foot rounded radius corner pool as the covers will probably not fit well and will cost you time and money in the long run. If your pool has 2 feet or less of radius rounded corners, the rectangle cover will work; if you have more than this, please contact us to let us help you purchase the right safety pool cover for you. If you purchase a safety cover that is not the correct size for your pool, your warranty will most likely be voided. We are here to help, please contact us at 800-772-0467. Why would I need a Custom Cover? Why won't this stock cover work for our pool?
- If your pool is not a perfect rectangle and/or has rounded edges of more than 2 feet in radius
- If your pool does not have 3 feet of concrete around the entire perimeter of the pool
- If there are objects around the pool like diving boards, un-removable ladders, slide legs, and water features
- If you cannot find your correct size online
If any of the above applies to you, we recommend a custom cover for your pool. Contact us at 800-772-0467 and one of our knowledgeable sales associates will be happy to assist you.
All solid safety covers come standard with a center mesh drain panel. It is possible to place a custom order for a cover without a drain panel, but the separate purchase of a cover pump would be needed.
