No above ground pool cover is safe for little ones as adults can be in a rush and forget to "buckle down the hatches." Usually the covers that fit over the sides and are clipped down are the best. However, a fence around the above pool is even better. Marcy

A swimming pool safety cover is latched down over the pool. Have atleast 3 barriers where anyone needs to get through to get to the pool.

Helpful Tips for Maintaining Pool Safety Covers?

Pool safety is extremely important for you and your loved ones. As much fun as a pool in your backyard can be, a pool safety cover for the off season is an absolute must. Here are some useful tips to put to use on your pool in the off season. The portion of your pool or deck area that will come into contact with your pool safety cover should be protected by padding. Neglecting the padding can cause friction between your pool cover and the wood of your deck or the metal edge of your pool. Prolonged friction can cause your pool safety cover to wear down or tear. Be careful maintaining your pool, even if the pool safety cover is in place. Keep your pool safety cover taut, and if necessary make adjustments throughout the season.

Do you have to cover an above ground swimming pool?
