LOOP-LOC Talks About the Differences Between Their Inground Safety Pool Covers and Traditional Tarp Covers

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., June 28, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- LOOP-LOC, manufacturer of inground pool covers that services New Jersey, talks about the differences between their safety pool covers and traditional tarp covers.

Many pool owners cover their pool with a large sheet of plastic tarp. However, there are a multitude of reasons that a tarp should not be a pool owner's cover of choice--and a safety pool cover should be used.

Tarps are difficult to handle and store. They also tear easily and rapidly deteriorate in the sunlight. Tarps also won't last too long; the longest they can last is one to two seasons, even with a warranty. Over the years, replacing it would cost pool owners more money than purchasing a LOOP-LOC pool cover with a 15-year warranty.

Unfortunately, a tarp cover cannot hold any weight. People, pets, and animals are not safe if they gain access to the pool. LOOP-LOC safety pool covers have been named "The ELEPHANT(TM) Cover" because they are strong enough to support the weight of Bubbles the elephant--as seen in their advertisements. These covers also meet and exceed ASTM safety standards that mandate: a cover must be able to support a certain amount of weight, must not permit gaps that a child or pet could squeeze through, and remove standing water.

Tarp covers also require a submersible pump, so the water doesn't build on top of the cover. With LOOP-LOC mesh safety covers, no pump is required. They are constructed of an ultra-strong, super dense mesh that blocks virtually all sunlight but still lets rain and melting snow easily drain through.

From an aesthetic viewpoint, tarp covers are ugly. No one wants to see a cover held down by water bags. Conversely, LOOP-LOC safety pool covers come in an array of colors that will complement backyard décor!
