Why buy a Pool Net?

Pool Guard Safety Nets offer you two options, pool nets and safety pool fences. Given the correct information, customers can make the choice best suited to their need for safety. The Net has some unique options. The first of course is complete safety when properly installed. Second, you will not compromise your view, i.e. golf courses, bays, rivers, woods etc. Third there are many pools the net may be the only option. Negative edge pools, rock decorations, waterfalls, most large pools built in the last five years are sometimes without a deck area that extends around the pool. There are several applications available, Pool Guard Pool Net Inc. will explain your options and help you decide which product will give you the best protection for your pool area.

What happens if a child falls or attempts to walk on my Pool Net?

Should a child fall or walk on the pool net, it will support them. Always maintain proper tension and make sure the pool net is in good condition. The weave of the pool net's mesh will allow the child to recover and crawl back to the pool deck. The net size will not allow a child to reach the water, and make it difficult for them to walk on the pool net. They are soon discouraged from doing so, due largely to the design of a net, not being on a solid surface.

How strong is a pool net?

The mesh is manufactured on a strong high density polyethylene. ASTM requires all pool nets and covers to support 485 lbs. Pool Guard Safety Net Inc mesh complies with this standard and has been tested to 500 lbs of pressure

Can I operate the tensioning system?

Pool Guard Safety Nets uses a series of pulleys, located in the center of the net, which is pulled together with a control line, using a ratchet pulley that is capable of pulling 350 lbs with very little effort. This system will place enough tension to tighten the net to hold 485 lbs of weight.


pool net anchors

How is the pool net secured to my pool deck?

Pool Guard Safety Net uses a flush mounted anchor that is virtually invisible should the net be removed. These anchors remain so re-installation is easily accomplished.

Can a small child remove the pool net?

When the pool net is properly tensioned and the ratchet pulley is removed, the net is difficult to remove the clips that secure the to the pool deck. There is a good deal of pressure on them.

Will the Pool Net allow the use of a Pool Vacuum?

Yes. The pool net is suspended above the pool's water when proper tension is applied. There are some applications where tech pool has a negative edge and requires the pool net to be stretched over the area, this may effect the pool vacuum.

Do I need to remove the pool net to place chemicals in the water?

The pool net allows customers to use a small funnel so as not to spill or place chemicals directly on the pool net - using care one should be able to test and place chemicals in the pool with the pool net in place.
