4 D 419 Aq Thursday Pools Sm

Thursday Pools
Thursday Pools' patented Geo-Hydro Valve allows fiberglass pools to be safely drained by relieving outside groundwater pressure to prevent fiberglass pools from floating. If outside groundwater pressure exceeds internal pressure, the Geo-Hydro Valve will open and allow groundwater to enter the pool through a filter (which prevents entry of debris that often causes standard hydrostatic valves to get stuck open). This process allows the pressure to equalize, preventing a dangerous floating-pool situation. Located on the lower pool sidewall, the valve is accessible from the ground level making it much easier and safer to maintain than standard hydrostatic valves.

Opp 420 Aq Anchor Industries Sm

Anchor Industries
The 5-Star Solid Safety Pool Cover from Anchor Industries features 360-degree tensioning using Solid Vinyl Tensioning Paddles. This 360-degree tensioning dynamic pulls the cover taut from the center outwards for maximum strength and protection. Each SVTP holds up to 3,400 lbs. in a straight line pull test, the company says. When SVTPs are welded into place, they eliminate stitching in the cover body. (Stitching creates stress points that can weaken a solid pool cover over time.) The cover attaches to deck anchors with heavy-duty straps, plus Anchor's D-ring system that outlasts plastic clips. With a perfectly smooth surface, debris blows easily off the cover.
