Fall is the most recognized time for people to really start thinking about keeping leaves out of their swimming pool in Chicago. The reality of of managing swimming pools with leaves in them is that they can have a multitude of issues if you do not have a pool safety cover . The first issue is the the stains that are etched into the liner or the finish of your swimming pool due to the acidity of the tree leaves from a wide variety of trees including Oak, Pine and Maple trees. The second issue that one faces by not having a pool safety cover or pool leaf cover is that the leaves can clog the skimmer and this will ultimately place a strain on the pool pump once it is clogged enough. The benefits aside from having a pool cover is having the pool safe. Any pool cover that you use should be ASTM level of building quality. A word of caution, most if not all covers that are built outside of the country do not follow these guidelines. Make sure you buy your cover or pool safety cover from a manufacturer that is based in the United States and the warranty is clear along with the contact information for your level of comfort.
We are pleased to announce the official site of Pool Guard of Chicago, Illinois. Pool safety is a topic that few people want to talk about until something happens close by or to a family member or worse. Many times parents will have a custom pool put in on their property however the component of the pool safety part is the last thing they think about for protecting not just their kids but for protecting kids that may visit their home. Many parents will say their kids have taken swimming lessons or have taken swimming survival lessons but knowing how to swim is not the be all end all...let's face it. Kids that know how to ride a bicycle also fall down on their bikes but we still recommend a parent be with them at all times when it comes to riding a bike right? The same applies to pool safety. Pool fences or pool safety fence systems are not complete without a self closing, self latching and lockable gate just as a home that has windows is not functional without doors...that lock! Pool fences albeit removable or not are not the prettiest products on the market...I mean after all they are still a fence. The great component about removable pool fences is just that...if you want to take them down for a short period of time, it can be done by an adult and it takes a mere 15 minutes to take the pool fence system down and store it away. The other fence products in the market that you may look at are in place forever. Aluminum fences have a place where a child can get a foot hold and climb over the fence. Iron fences? Same exact thing however an iron fence will rust over time...after all it is by the pool so to expect less is just not realistic. Removable pool fence does not have a place on the fence itself for a child to get a foothold and climb over the fence. This truly is a unique component for pool safety when looking at options to secure the pool.
