A Loop Loc cover installed by Gappsi, will give you all the protection, the security and the safety you need for your family, pets, and neighbors. Loop Loc covers are made to let the water from the rain to get through. Also it allows you to put the pump in the middle of the cover and allow the extra water in the pool to come through and get pumped out. Loop Loc covers are manufactured in all mesh or solid rubber with a 24×24 mash hole in the center to let water drain into the pool. A Loop Loc cover is a very safe cove and the safety and strength of the cover is provided by the installation of it. Anchor are installed in the patio about 36 inches away from the swimming pool. The way they are installed is by drilling a hole in the patio and then brass anchors are slid through and the cover is then attached to it.
But if the patio is not installed correctly, the cover may become loose and it will not be as safe as it should be.
The Gappsi way of installation starts with the proper installation of the patio. Five feet wide slabs are always installed around the swimming pool to prevent settling of the patio-reinforced ribars, which are always attached to the swimming pool’s walls and the finished paving material is then installed over the concrete base. The Gappsi installation of the Loop Loc cover is then installed over the patio by drilling holes straight through the finished paving material all the way down into the concrete base. Then a sleeve is installed into the hole about 16 inches into the patio going trough the 4 inches of concrete base and further in the ground. A brass screw pin is then installed into the pipe and by unscrewing the brass screw, it will come up above the patio and allow for the cover ring hooks to attached to the brass screw. After this is all done for every strap of the cover, your Gappsi installed Loop Loc cover is safe to walk on with no chance of breaking.
A Loop Loc cover is made of a very strong synthetic material which will hold a lot of weight. It is very strong and safe, and after the installation of the concrete patio base it is further recommended to build a very strong pool. Gappsi swimming pools are very strong because they are built of reinforced concrete. A Loop Loc cover will put a lot of pulling strength onto the pool walls because when snow builds up on the Loop Loc cover, the weight of the snow will apply a lot of force by pulling side ways, thus applying tons of inward pressure to the pool walls. This could collapse the swimming pool , and believe me I have seen many cases of this… today is January 9, 2011 and the last call we had about a swimming pool collapsing was January 3rd 2011! Gappsi pools are very strong and are installed above industry standard. The Gappsi organization builds quality projects and this same quality and care is applied to all Gappsi services.
