What Not to Do

To ensure your safety cover’s longevity, here are some things you should avoid.

• Don’t walk on the cover except when cleaning the drain panel or clearing the area around the automatic pump. Walking on the cover puts unnecessary stress on it. We recommend staying off of the cover except in emergencies. That’s what it was designed for.

• Don’t add chemicals to the pool through the cover. Pull back a corner and add them there. If you do spill chemicals on the cover, rinse it with water immediately.

• When installing or removing the cover, don’t drag it on the ground. Dragging the cover over a rough surface can cause tears in the fabric.

• Don’t store the cover on the ground. Storing it in the cover bag off the ground will keep it dry and away from rodents.
