Meyco Safety Pool Cover with Center Step
Top of the Line for Bottom line Price
The price was the best (less than $700) and the installation instructions were fairly easy to understand with minimal exceptions. Installation required use of a Hammer Drill, which I was fortunate to have but it can be rented very inexpensively. I purchased a concrete drill bit ($20) to make the correct size holes for the anchors. Choose one that will last drilling 28 holes (for a 16' x 36' pool). I installed this cover by myself, which took the better part of a day. Once the cover has been installed, the hard part is over. You can simply put it on and take it off in about ten to fifteen minutes. The material is very high strength and the cover looks great compared to our old cover that used the water filled bladder tubes. Our neighbors even remarked how much better our back yard looks this winter with the new cover.
A coworker paid a pool company over $3500 to install a custom cover. The cover did not come with the installation/removal tool and the pool company charged him over $800 every time they had to come out to install or remove the cover. If your thinking about getting a pool cover or replacing your old type that required water tubes, this is definately the way to go. Don't wait any longer, you will ask yourself why it took you so long after you do it. I know I did...

Great Product, Great Price
We purchased this cover after speaking to our local pool company and getting a price from them of over $2,000 to install a mesh cover for our pool. It did take some time to install because you had to do a lot of measuring to get the anchors in correctly, but it worked well and we were able to get it in place and looking really nice before the leaves started to fall.

Best Purchase Ever
I am so glad we purchased this Meyco Safety Cover that was custom fitted to our pool. It is so easy to use & looks great on.
In the past I used pool pillows (which would lose air), 48 (lots to fill) aqua-blocks to hold the old winter cover down, plus a leaf net on top of that. Now it's just this Meyco cover attached with great pop-up pins to hold it in place; and the leaves just blow away off of it!
