Avoiding accidental and dangerous falls in unattended pools is made easier with the use of pool safety covers.  They prevent people and animals from falling in the water when there is nobody around the pool.  The advantage of a safety cover versus just a solar cover is that it is a much more durable solution.  In many cases a pool safety cover can help save a life.
