There are two types of pool covers: mesh and solid. There are
automatic pool covers on the market, made of various materials. Pool
covers serve many purposes, including keeping debris out of the pool,
heating up the water, and minimizing the number of incidents of people
or pets falling into the pool. It is important to remember that
children may still fall into the pool, even when it is covered. In
these cases, covers can interfere with a child’s ability to breathe.
Refer to the tips presented in the pool safety section for information
about protecting children near pools.
