Discount Pool and Spa Supplies Custom Pool Safety Cover Drawing Tool



We are pleased to provide this tool for drawing your pool to help when purchasing custom pool safety covers. This will save you the time and frustration of sketching it manually, and provide an accurate rendition of your data. This will also help you to visually verify your measurements/input before obtaining a custom pool safety cover quote. Please see the SAMPLE DRAWING.

We have made the chore of getting custom pool safety covers much simpler, so if that was holding you back, you now have no excuse!

NOTE: This pool safety covers tool is provided "AS-IS", with no guarantee it will function properly under all circumstances. (Well, you shouldn't have any problems, and it is free, at least for now.) It has been tested and determined to work as expected using a limited number of data sets, and should work as expected provided the data you input is accurate. Any abnormalities should be clearly evident, and a list of the data points you provided will be listed at the bottom of the page. Should you discover any issues, please notify us and provide as many details as possible including the data.

If you prefer, you can download the EXCEL SPREADSHEET to fill in and email back to us, and we will create your drawing and fax or email it back to you.
Please allow up to 2 business days for this service.

Also note that this is not a substitute for the required form which you will need to fill out for getting a custom cover quote which asks for specific details. You should use this form here.



MEASURING INSTRUCTIONS

By adhering closely to the following instructions, you will eliminate the possibility that your custom safety pool cover will not fit properly. The more care taken, the better the fit and the more pleased you will be with the results. As custom pool safety covers are not an insignificant purchase, and measuring mistakes can be costly, you are advised to take extra precautions to ensure that your measurements are complete and accurate.

1. Establish two points as a baseline, "A-B", with "A" on the left as shown below. "A-B" line must be at least 3 feet from the pool and approximately 2/3 the length of the pool; 20’-25’ is typical (show this on the sketch). To mark "A-B" points on deck - use chalk marks, on ground - use stakes in the dirt.

NOTE: The "A-B" line must never cross the pool line and should be approximately 3 feet away from the pool at the closest point (4 to 5 feet away for pools over 44 feet long).

2. Mark and number points (the higher the sampling rate the better, particularly along tight curves) along the inside edge of the pool with chalk at approximately 3 foot intervals. Number all corner points, transition points, ladders, handrails, grabrails, slide legs, rocks, spillways, spa walls separating spa and pool, fill spout and dive stand, or other obstruction. 1 to 2 feet intervals should be used in small or tight radius areas and raised wall areas. At least 3 points along straight walls. Points should be made at all transitions - i.e. straight wall to radius. Locations representing any farthest points are also recommended. Please keep in mind that maintaining equal distance between measurements is not nearly as important as is the sampling rate (number of measurements) and sampling locations. The better the sample the more closely the result will show the proper contour with free form objects. This is particularly important to note for curves and transitions.

3. Measurements are now taken from point "A" to point #1, then point #2, and all the way around the pool. Then measure from point "B" to same point #1 and then #2, as you did for point "A". Measurements are listed in column format as shown. DO NOT INCLUDE LADDERS, DIVE STANDS, OTHER OBSTACLES, ETC, IN THE DATA. MEASURE THOSE POINTS AFTER THE ENTIRE POOL HAS BEEN MEASURED.

4. Take measurements between 2 known points to determine the length and width of the pool. Additional measurements for difficult pools are suggested. Cross dimensions to any raised beam obstacles are also recommended.

TIPS

You can save a great deal of time by inputing your measurements into the inches columns in inches only, saving about half of your data entry.

We have provided measurement points which should be more than enough for all but the largest pools. The program ignores those which are not filled in so use only what you need. If you need more let us know.

It is highly recommended, especially if you do not have an automatic form-fill in your browser, to make sure your data is correct the first time.
