Safety Cover Short Spring - 5 Inches
Loop-Loc's founder, Bill Donaton, co-invented the safety swimming pool cover in 1957, after a business associate complained about finding small animals drowned in the waterlogged solid vinyl cover on his pool. The key, Bill envisioned, was to create a new type of pool cover that would allow water to drain through, rather than collect. The first mesh safety swimming pool covers were marketed in Connecticut in the fall of that year, and an industry was born. In 1977, Bill founded Loop-Loc with five employees. Today, Loop-Loc boasts a 190,000-square-foot headquarters in Hauppauge, New York, and 300 employees. The company has sold safety swimming pool covers on every continent on earth except Antarctica.
