Net Master Pool Safety Net FAQs


Why buy a safety net rather than a pool fence?

Both pool safety fences and pool safety nets protect your children and pets from pool access. However, the net system is great for homeowners with little deck space. Unlike safety fences, the pool net cover is installed flush with the pool deck, and takes up no visual space from around your pool area. Also, a safety net fits tightly above the water and even a baby cannot crawl under it. The safety net's 3.5" squares are too small for a child's body or head to fit through, but are too large to allow a child or pet to run or play on the net.

How convenient is it to use the pool if I have a pool net cover?

Most Net Master pool safety nets can be removed and replaced in under 10 minutes. Pools with complicated rock elevations or waterfall details may require a few extra minutes for the removal and replacement of the safety net. The lightweight, water resistant reel included with each net helps to roll up the net and keep it contained when the pool is being used. Always replace the pool net completely when the pool is no longer in use. The net must be removed entirely before using your pool.

Can the Net Master work for any pool?

Yes. Models are available for unground and aboveground pools. Complicated pool layouts or elevations may require a more detailed design of your pool net. Net Master pool safety nets are designed for the do-it-yourselfer; however, for more complicated installations, call your local pool specialist.

Will holes have to be drilled in my deck?

Yes. There are two ways to install your anchors. The popular in-ground anchors require the drilling of ¾" holes in your deck. These anchors are available in multiple colors or brass finish, for a close match to your pool deck. Alternatively, our flat brackets can be used on the deck surface. This option requires the drilling of holes that are only 1/8" wide.
