Pool Covers have been around for years. The challenge is that not all pool covers are pool safety covers. Tarps with water bags on the borders do not qualify as a pool safety cover as the present two main issues. The first
Is that the water from rain collects on top of the tarp or cover resulting in a “pool on top of a pool”. The second and unsafe component of this type of pool cover is the fact that if a child or family pet were to fall into the tarp, the tarp would wrap around them. This type of covers is not recommended for any pool. They are simply unsafe and are do not help to keep your pool clean either.
