8 x 40 Lap Safety Pool Cover (pool Cover Material: hydra-heavy-weight-solid-with-8-step) (8x40LAutomatic Pool CoversOVER-HYDSOLID-S)
8 x 40 Lap Safety Pool Cover
An 8 x 40 Lap Safety Pool Cover is your first step to creating a safe backyard and clean pool during the off-season. Your standard Winter Cover is no more than a tarp held down with water tubes, providing little to no protection from the accidental intrusion of children or stray animals. A Safety Cover is a safe solution for any homeowner. Not only will your backyard look great, but installation is easy and the “Peace of Mind” that you will carry through-out the winter months is well worth the investment.
These top of the line pool covers combine a unique mesh weave with superior sewing techniques giving each cover enhanced durability that will hold up under years of extreme weather conditions. The Mesh design allows for rain or snow to easily drain through while still blocking the maximum amount of sunlight and debris. Each cover will provide your family with a safe, reliable pool cover for years to come.

Universal brass anchors or aluminum lawn stakes for securing in-ground swimming pool safety covers. Made from high-quality brass metal (aluminum for stakes) – longer durability in harsh cold weather. Concrete deck anchors are included in the pool cover kit.
Concrete Deck Anchors
The brass concrete anchor is the most common type of safety cover anchor used. The standard cover anchor is threaded and 1/16″ wider at the top. When tapped into the hole, it press-fits into place, holding the anchor body stationary, as you turn the threaded insert up or down.
Using a rotary hammer drill with a 3/4″ masonry bit, place a piece of sturdy tape around the bit at 2-1/4″, so you know when to stop drilling. Hold the drill perpendicular to the deck when drilling, to create a vertical hole. After drilling the hole, remove the dust, then tamp the anchor into the hole, using a tamping tool so you don’t damage the keyhole or bend the rim of the anchor.
Wood Deck Anchors
The wood deck anchor has a wide flange on the top of the anchor, to protect the deck and hold the cover securely with more lateral strength.
First, drill a counter-sink hole, 3/16″ deep, using a Forstner bit of the right diameter, so the anchor flange will sit flush into the wood, and not be a toe-stubbing hazard. Next, using a 3/4″ wood drill bit, drill a hole in the center, all the way through the wood. Drop the wood anchor into the hole, and then screw in the brass flange screws, using a #2 Phillips screw head.
This style of cover stake is designed to be installed in the yard around the pool where no concrete or wood decking has been used.
The lawn stakes should be installed sloped away from the pool (as opposed to straight up and down like other cover anchor types), which allows the lawn stake to be straight up and down once the cover is under tension. It is common to need to reinstall these stakes into the ground yearly as they will be loose after a snow load on the cover.
