According to the report of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the second leading cause of the death for children from one to fourteen years old is drowning. In addition, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) did an extensive research and found that 75 % of children who involved in swimming pool submersion or drowning accidents were between 1 and 3 years old. So if you have a swimming pool in your backyard, you really need a safety cover in order to protect children from drowning or becoming submerged in your pool.



A typical pool cover is little more than a tarp to put over your pool. It does not prevent children or pets from gaining access to the pool. All safety covers must conform to the Standard Performance Specification set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). According to the ASTM, a safety cover must be able to hold a minimum of 485 pounds per five square feet, not permit gaps that a child or pet could squeeze through, and can remove standing water.



Landy is so proud to offer qualified safety covers which meet the standard of ASTM in the standard blue and green colors. Built from extremely strong material and secured tightly to the deck by heavy-duty springs and brass anchors, a Landy safety cover puts a "lock" on your pool that will prevent children and pets from gaining access to the water.
