Loop-Loc Pool Covers
You'll probably never need a pool cover strong enough to support the weight of "Bubbles," the African elephant seen here. But imagine how safe you'll feel owning the only pool cover that's proven it can: the one and only LOOP-LOC Safety Swimming Pool Cover!
Loop-Loc Pool Covers Are Built From The Highest Quality Materials!
Built super-strong and securely anchored into the deck, LOOP-LOC puts an unbreakable "lock" on your pool to protect your family.
Safety So Unique, It's Patented. Only LOOP-LOC Pool Covers come with the patented SAFEDGE and GAPGUARD Child Safety Intrusion Barrier. It closes the dangerous gaps created where raised obstructions meet the cover's edge, so there's no way children or pets can slip through!
Only A LOOP-LOC Pool Covers Performs Like A LOOP-LOC! Here just a few of the reasons why:
- The polyester bonded thread used in LOOP-LOC pool cover costs almost 10 times more than that used by some of our competitors.
- Double perimeter webbing and double-thick straps give our covers an incredibly high break strength.
- We use extremely high-strength, non-corrosive 302 grade stainless steel springs for superior weight-bearing capacity.
- We sew the webbing to the cover using contrasting white thread, instead of black, to ensure that not a single stitch is missed.
- We use 87% black yarn in our fabric for superior UV stability.
- Chafe strips are manufactured with exclusively virgin material - not "regrind," which tends to stain decking.
- Non-corrosive aluminum tips are double-notched for stability.
- The large X-tacking on LOOP-LOC pool cover straps are sewn manually for precise placement and maximum strength.
LOOP-LOC Pool Covers founder, Bill Donaton, co-invented the safety swimming pool cover in 1957, after a business associate complained about finding small animals drowned in the waterlogged solid vinyl cover on his pool.
The key, Bill envisioned, was to create a new type of pool cover that would allow water to drain through, rather than collect. The first mesh safety swimming pool covers were marketed in Connecticut in the fall of that year, and an industry was born.
In 1977, Bill founded LOOP-LOC Pool Cover with five employees. Today, LOOP-LOC boasts a 190,000-square-foot headquarters in Hauppauge, New York, and 300 employees. The company has sold safety swimming pool covers on every continent on earth except Antarctica.
When Bill's daughter, LeeAnn Donaton-Pesta, took over as LOOP-LOC Pool Covers President in 2001, it was particularly fitting, because she was literally the inspiration for the company. "My father's devotion to safety began when he noticed that, at just 20 months old, I was able to climb the four-foot chain-link fence around our house, leaving the pool area totally exposed," LeeAnn explains. "He realized that the best way to make swimming pools safe for children was to create a pool cover that could not be breached by a child. He dedicated himself to manufacturing the highest quality, safest pool covers on the market."
Throughout the 1970's and 1980's, Bill continued to make safety improvements to LOOP-LOC covers. Most significant was LOOP-LOC's GAPGUARD and SAFEDGE Child Safety Intrusion Barrier - a plastic extrusion designed to close the gaps created where the edge of the cover meets a raised obstruction. For this breakthrough, he received U.S. Patent #4,982,457.
Bill also led the efforts to create industry-accepted performance standards for the product line. In the early 1980's, he served on the National Spa and Pool Institute committee which, in conjunction with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), provided the Standard Performance Specification.
LOOP-LOC also took the lead in bringing the safety issue to the forefront for consumers. "For many years, the industry considered safety a negative to be avoided," LeeAnn says. "By bringing safety to the front and center of LOOP-LOC advertising, we showed that it could be a positive." The result was one of the most recognized advertising campaigns in the history of the pool and spa industry: LOOP-LOC's "Bubbles the Elephant" ads.
When Bill Donaton passed away in 2002, the industry lost a great leader and pioneer. However, LeeAnn reports LOOP-LOC's focus on its mission is as strong as ever. "Back in the beginning, my Dad hung a banner in the plant that read: 'The Cover You Make Today Could Save A Life Tomorrow,'" she said. "That same banner still hangs in our plant. Because that's still how everyone at LOOP-LOC feels about every safety cover we manufacture. No compromises, no excuses!"
Solid water bag pool covers become a dangerous, slippery swamp after just a few rains. LOOP-LOC's fine mesh allows rain to drain through. The cover stays dry and beautiful in any weather!
No More Back-Breaking Maintenance.
Unlike solid water bag covers, a LOOP-LOC requires no pumping, scrubbing or heavy maintenance. And it's much lighter in weight than typical solid vinyl covers, so putting it on and taking it off your pool is a snap!
