Why you should use a Solid or Mesh Inground Pool Cover?

Safety You Can Rely On!

A Coverstar solid & mesh safety pool cover is the strongest, most reliable way to prevent loved ones, children, and pets getting into your pool without your supervision. Custom-built to fit your pool and made from best-in-class materials, a Coverstar inground pool cover is one of the strongest, most reliable ways to protect your family and your investment.

Solid & mesh pool covers are designed to protect your pool for safety and lower your maintenance costs throughout the winter. Coverstar inground pool covers are made from a patented design to deliver safety covers that are strong, easy to install, and durable. Besides protecting your loved ones, our pool safety covers keep debris out of your pool and block sunlight so you can save money on pool chemicals and enjoy cleaner water.

Cover Types

Mesh Pool Covers

Mesh safety covers are a popular choice for homeowners – and with good reason. Mesh safety covers are reliable, safe, and highly durable. Coverstar safety covers are constructed with interlocked and double overlapped seams to improve weight transfer from the cover materials to the seams and webbing.

Mesh safety covers for winter are ideal to protect your pool during colder months. They allow precipitation to pass through easily, which eliminates the need for a submersible pump, and allows water to drain into the pool during the winter. In addition to their durability, mesh pool covers are also lighter and easier to manage than other pool covers – making pool management easier than ever before. Latham offers three tiers of Coverstar mesh covers: 9000MX Max Shade Mesh, 700MS High Shade Mesh, and 5000M Standard Mesh.

Solid Pool Covers

Solid pool covers are also a simple yet useful choice for homeowners. As the name suggests, solid pool covers are composed of a solid sheet of material, typically vinyl, to protect your pool and your loved ones.
Solid covers are available with a pump option or Latham’s exclusive Invis-a-drain. Pump applications prevent virtually all water from entering the pool, while Latham’s exclusive Invis-a-drain allows water to pass through, easing cover maintenance. Both applications block 100% of light.

Latham offers solid pool covers in a variety of material weights and colors. From Lite-Duty Solid to Heavy Duty Solid, all solid pool covers can be custom designed to fit any size or shape pool.

Detailed Features


Heavy duty stainless steel single-coil springs, with D-Rings for ease of installation and adjustment. They have a lower profile – so covers lay flat and fit tight — whatever the shape of the pool. Standard on all Solid & Mesh covers.


All of our Solid & Mesh safety cover seams are interlocked and double overlapped. This seam is the heart of the safety difference. Place your hands over top of one another – how strong is that? Now hook your fingers together and place someone else’s hands above and below your own – this is how our safety cover seams are done.


Our coping anti-rub strip is white, ensuring that no unsightly black marks end up on your coping.



Obstruction in the way of your pool cover? Not for long with our Reduced Deck Mount™ system. New patent pending design ensures easy installation around raised walls, water features, spas and other deck accessories. All Stainless Steel hardware with brass anchors. Don’t even have this much space? Don’t worry, we can design a cover for any situation.


1/4″ drain holes are located every 6″ in reinforced vinyl down the center of the cover. Beneath is a 12″ wide mesh drain filter panel designed for easy cleaning. Standard on Solid Covers.


A potential trouble spot for pool covers is the perimeter – where they can fray and unravel. Our Solid & Mesh covers are first hemmed, then sandwiched between double layers of webbing. Edges can’t unravel, you get years of trouble-free performance.


Excellence shows in the details. Like box tack reinforcement on all perimeter straps. Protective pads positioned at step nosings to prevent abrasion. And added protection on every component including the thread to resist UV rays and pool chemicals.
