Advantage of a Merlin SmartMesh Safety Cover

August 20, 2014

Fall is almost here, and with Fall comes the pool closing season.  It is now time to start thinking about winterizing your pool so that you are prepared for the winter ahead.  For those customers who are looking to install a safety cover or upgrade an existing safety cover, I would like to explain to you the benefits of going with a Merlin Brand SmartMesh Safety cover.

The majority of mesh safety covers on the market are standard mesh covers.  When you cover your pool with a standard mesh cover, it has a tendency to open up looking more like a frog pond than a pool! Each season, pool owners pull off their mesh covers and go to work trying to get their pools clean and clear enough to swim in. Sometimes this process can take weeks and cost hundreds of dollars.


It is for this reason that Merlin has developed SmartMesh. A truly unique mesh material, SmartMesh provides 100% shade from the algae causing rays of the sun, while still allowing rain and melting snow to pass through the cover material. This material is so special Merlin was granted a U.S. Patent!

100% shade is not all SmartMesh provides you. SmartMesh filters debris as small as 40 microns. To give you a comparison, a typical sand filter for a pool filters debris as small as 20 to 30 microns. SmartMesh is like having a filter over your pool!

SmartMesh is also much lighter than a solid safety cover. Approximately 40% lighter! SmartMesh is easy to put on and take off.
