Items to Increase Safety Inside and Out of the Pool

Products and designs that help keep your backyard safe.

From fencing to pool covers to monitoring systems, here are some must-have amenities that are useful, stylish, and increase safety inside and out of the pool.

Skimmer Covers

The backyard pool is a timeless icon of summer fun. But there is a serious side to owning your backyard dream—pool safety. The skimmer box is the main suction point of the pool, attached to a very powerful pump. Limbs and hair can become trapped, resulting in serious accidents, especially for children.

HIDE® Skimmer Covers have safety covered. The HIDE® Skimmer Cover allows ventilation around the cover’s perimeter, which provides superior ventilation to the pump. The increased airflow surface area is less likely to be blocked and dramatically improves safety.

The HIDE® Edge Protector and Cover are made from 316L marine grade stainless steel, which is incredibly robust and prevents the decking material from breaking, even after years of use. Weak, brittle, or broken covers are very dangerous.

A HIDE® Cover cannot be opened without the ‘safety key’. This patented locking system makes HIDE® Covers the safest skimmer cover option. Learn more at skimmercovers.com.

AI Camera Pool Safety System

Imagine how reassuring it would be to know someone is watching over your pool 24/7.

CamerEye’s intelligent AI camera safety system detects when people and pets are in and around your pool and distinguishes between someone playing, swimming or relaxing from actual distress. And if someone crosses the SmartFence or is in distress, CamerEye detects it immediately and sends alerts and sounds an alarm within seconds of detection.

CamerEye is also the only camera-based pool alarm to meet ASTM F2208-08 standards that provides comprehensive pool protection and approved to replace floating pool alarms, door alarms, and in-pool splash alarms.
