We can supply you with our large template shipping bag that can easily handle most old covers. We do ask that you remove the hardware before sending the template. Also, due to the popularity of the template program and increased disposal cost we will have a simple service charge of just $35 per template.

Our team of experts will measure your template using our exclusive measuring system that records the precise size and shape of your template. Your new Tara replacement safety cover will fit in the same position as the original. If the exisiting cover was made by Tara, just send us the serial number. The serial number can be found on the warning label and on the label stitched to the underside of the cover.

Please keep in mind, sometimes straps have to be moved on the new cover. We may have to move the straps in situations such as; the cover material is different than the original, if there have been changes to the pool or to bring a safety cover into compliance with ASTM standards.

Terms and conditions:
There is a $183.59 charge, plus freight, if you want the template returned but you don’t order a new Tara safety cover. Some additional conditions may apply.
