for children and pets, the major concern for every pool owner, was the
motivating factor in Meyco's development of the mesh cover back in 1956.
Decades of improvements and four U.S. patents later, Meyco continues to
offer an outstanding version of the original mesh safety pool cover.
This pool cover material, since itís the lightest weight, is used on the
worlds largest pool covers. Some pool covers get so big, Meyco will
break it into smaller pieces that combine to make one safety pool cover.
This material and the pool cover design has been tested time and time
again from cars crashing on to it to tornados trying to rip it away. The
original concept of this pool cover came from looking for an alternative
to the dangerous, labor intensive way of closing pools. Working with a
prominent pool builder in CT, Fred Meyer worked on several materials
before coming up with an early ancestor to MeycoLite.

Meyco pool covers exceed all ASTM standards for safety as
well as many local safety requirements. When properly secured to the
pool decking, the cover's crisscrossed webbing hold taut across the pool
in "trampoline style." Meyco pool covers can not blow off in a
windstorm, and are difficult to remove without the safety installation
rod. If that weren't enough, the straps are capable of withstanding of
4,500 lbs. of tension!
Mesh safety pool covers eliminate the need to pump off
dangerous surface water since rain water drains through. Leaves and
debris on the cover dry and blow off. With proper water treatment, there
are no algae problems either. The only maintenance required for using
mesh safety covers is to prevent the water level from falling lower than
18" from deck level during the winter.
Tailored to fit any size or shape pool, the standard forest green
fine mesh is handsome in appearance as well as maintenance free.
Non-corrosive solid brass anchors disappear flush with the deck when the
cover is removed. The need for unsightly ropes, pillows, pumps and water
bags is eliminated.
With more and more pool owners having less and less time on their
hands these days, convenience is more important than ever. Safety pool
covers are light in weight, super strong, and can be put on or taken off
quickly (installation time for a standard 20'x40' pool cover is about 5
Safety vs. Standard Tarp Covers
Safety pool covers actually cost less per year of use than standard
tarp covers! The larger initial investment for the safety cover is much
more than compensated for by its longer mesh life and by eliminating the
need for water bags, pumps or pillows.
Meyco pool covers are made of the finest materials available...the
best polypropylene fabric, the strongest thread and the most durable
hardware. Each pool cover is designed with deep channeled abrasion
strips for cover wear protection.
