Why a Katchakid Pool Safety Net?

Since 1972 no child has ever drowned in a pool protected by a correctly installed, maintained & replaced Katchakid. These pool & pond safety nets are reliable and durable, even in the most extreme conditions. We have customers using these nets in wide variety of climates from the Caribbean tropics to the cooler climate of Canada and the toasty desert southwest of the United States. 

The Katchakid® safety net system is specifically designed as a barrier to help protect children and pets from exposed, open water. One can visualize a net like a large tennis racket of their pool or pond. The UV and winter-safe netting is stretched over the pool and anchored to flush mounted fasteners.


Our pool net can cover swimming pools, spas, split decks and rockeries as each pool net cover is custom-shaped and installed to suit the water feature. Once installed, the Katchakid is easy for pool owners to remove and replace.

Do-It-Yourself kits are sold only for regular shaped pools of standard size. For free form pools, larger pools and pools with walls, rockeries and waterfalls a professional installation is required by a trained Katchakid Technician.

Fitting a Katchakid can be time consuming and relatively detailed as these pool safety nets are custom installed to your pool by you during the installation process. The DIY Katchakid requires basic knowledge of using a power drill and other standard tools. Fitting a DIY Katchakid is a physical job and calls for some strength, it is advisable to have more than one person installing the net.
