What you need to know before buying a solid or automatic pool cover:

Our reasons for not recommending use of a solid swimming pool cover or a mesh pool safety cover - Through research, experience and parental feedback we have found the following:

  • Solid swimming pool covers attract small children, they use it like a trampoline, even riding their bikes over it and parental feedback indicates that children have to be constantly removed from the center of pool covers.
  • An aging pool cover can become brittle posing an additional drowning risk of a breaking under a childs weight.
  • Solid covers can be become slippery when wet preventing a child from being able to get back off the water.
  • Solid pool covers can sag and hold puddles of rainwater - as a child can drown in just 5cm - 8cm of water this is also a far from ideal situation.
  • Solid pool covers obscure top to bottom visibility of the swimming pool so one cannot see what is underneath the cover.

Every parent knows the real worry of having open water near. The sad fact is we could lose one of our children in just 30 seconds. Pool fences are great security but what if the gate is left open? What if the child climbs over? For a pool alarm to be activated the child is already in the water. With a pool net all those fears fade away. We have never had a drowning with a correctly installed Katchakid pool safety net.

Katchakid is the original pool safety net system. With now over 30 years experience in this field we lead the pool safety net industry worldwide. Every system, every innovation, every advance within the pool net business, that we have seen, has been a Katchakid development. At the same time as we welcome more children being protected, by having more pools netted, we feel we must warn against inferior reproductions of the Katchakid. A net is not just a net and your child's life is at stake with a poor quality imitation.

A Good Katchakid Inground Pool Safety Net provides added protection for child water safety.
