Technology For Peace of Mind
We at Blankenship Pools, Inc. feel Safety Covers work well if you have small children or live in an area with abundant wildlife.
In addition, they keep your pool in supreme shape year round.
We use Kafko Safety Covers on our pools. They also make ‘Automatic Safety Covers’. The following information is taken from their website.
Kafko™ Safety Covers
The Kafko™ Swimming Pool Safety Cover is designed to protect both your pool and your family. Our swimming pool covers are manufactured to your specific size and shape of your backyard swimming pool. Properly installed, the Kafko™ Pool Safety Cover will help prevent accidental intrusion by children and pets.
What sets Kafko™ safety covers apart from the competition? Every single component of our in ground safety covers are painstakingly engineered to be the best. We have deconstructed all of the major safety covers on the market and have built ours better and stronger than anything on the market today. We also exceed all mandatory safety cover regulations.

What kind of safety cover would we build to protect our own families? This is the question on the minds of everyone when we engineer the cover to protect yours.
Custom Heavy Duty Hardware
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 Kafko™ covers.
A Cover Is Only As Strong As Its Seams
Kafko™ safety cover seams are interlocked and double overlapped. This seam is the heart of the Kafko™ 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.
Coping Anti-Rub Strips
Our coping anti-rub strip is white, ensuring that no unsightly black marks end up on your coping.
Reduced Deck Mount
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.
Double Decker Edge
A potential trouble spot for pool covers is the perimeter – where they can fray and unravel. The Kafko™ cover is first hemmed, then sandwiched between double layers of webbing. Edges can’t unravel, you get years of trouble-free performance.
Built to Last – Box Stitch
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.
