We are buying a house with a 42' in ground lap pool. We have two kids, .5 and 2.5 years old. My initial thoughts are to get two safety pool covers made (winter and summer) using the same mounting pins. For a summer cover, I've seen just large webbing, or leaf-proof mesh. The plan would be to cover the pool during the work week with the summer cover to protect against the kids falling in. A pool alarm will also be used.
Ideas? Thoughts? I don't know if an automatic would cover it because of the cut outs. Or just a winter cover and safety fence for summer? We have a lot of trees, so leaf debris is another factor.
