This material contains continuous multifilament and resists abrasion, moths, and bacteria.
Remember all pool safety covers are supplementary pool safety aids and not a substitute for the undivided and constant supervision of an adult. Pool covers can never replace adult supervision nor can they be a guarantee against drowning or other accidents. Always replace your cover after swimming. Experts agree that multiple layers of protection offer the best protection against drowning and near drowning incidents. The most at risk are children under 5 years of age so always be extra vigilant with children in this age group.
Katchakid Central Tension System
Our Katchakid net has a built in Central Tension System (CTS) that can be adjusted from tight to very tight and is designed in such a way that it cannot be removed by most children under the age of 12 years. The CTS is a multifaceted system that uses a series of pulley's set in a circular fashion, which open and close to control the tension of the net. The correct configuration and size of the CTS together among a necessary amount of pulleys determine a pool net's efficiency. The Katchakid uses an average of 12 to 16 pulleys per net.
The Katchakid is attached to the pool surround by small stainless steel fasteners to toe friendly anchors, spaced 10 inches away from the waters edge at +/- 30 inch intervals.
