The GLI Pro mesh safety covers are the upgrade over the SAP mesh safety covers. The weave of the material it tighter on the Pro and it blocks 98% of sunlight vs 90% for the SAP. Less sunlight equals less chance of algae. The Pro offers a 15 year warranty and the SAP offers a 12 year warranty.

Below are the features of each cover.


  • Construction of mesh with a unique weave of polypropylene material that blocks out algae-producing UV rays and resulting in making springtime pool opening a snap!
  • A tight mesh material that allows water to drain from the surface, easily filtering out dirt, leaves and debris!
  • A fabric, which is nearly 50% lighter than solid covers for easier installation, removal and storage.
  • An extra-strength material that provides greater tear resistance and tougher winter wear-ability which is ideal for both commercial and residential use.
  • Use of standard, commercial-grade springs on Custom Covers.
  • Fastest turnaround times in the industry!*
  • Standard or above safety cover performance as outlined in ASTM F 1346-91.
