HAPPY HALLOWEEN from all of us at Merlin Industries!
There seems to be some SPOOKY GHOSTS creeping around this Merlin Safety Cover...how many can you find? Let us know in the comments!
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Halloween! 🎃👻💀
Another Merlin Industries, Inc. Cover installed by us.
We've been professionally installing Merlin covers for 21 years. We educate our customers to make sure they make the right choice for them.
"Standard" mesh safety covers should NOT BE TREATED EQUALLY!
This photo demonstrates how terminology may be difficult to decipher when it comes to safety cover choices.
On the far right is one of our competitors' "standard" mesh cover materials; this is often compared to our standard mesh - DuraMesh II (pictured in the center.) As you can see when it is held up to a fluorescent light, there is a HUGE difference in the amount of shade between the competitor's standard (far right) and our standard (center.) CHEAPER does not always mean BETTER and all "Standard" safety covers DO NOT provide the same level of shade protection for pools.
On the far left, we have our SmartMesh material; Merlin's patented material and the only mesh safety cover material on the market to provide 100% shade. Look at that protection from the light!! Without sunlight able to get through the material, algae is way less likely to grow when the pool is closed in the off-season.
Make sure to compare samples before assuming all mesh materials from all manufacturers are the same!
We give specific instructions to achieve clean and clear water. This article reinforces our recommendations. We suggest cleaning and balancing pools prior to closing to help ensure an easier clean up in the spring.
Fall is coming soon. Leaves are getting in the pool. This time of year skimmer baskets can get full very easily. Check them often and empty.
Merlin's smartmesh grade is great. Filters out sun and fine debris.
Not going to be able to see the #Eclipse2017 today? Try our SmartMesh; provides 100% shade from sunlight!
We have not experience all of this but some. Still funny how they put a spin on it.
Pool season is in full swing which means pool pros are experiencing a great deal of service calls. When speaking to a homeowner, we know that you must choose your words wisely and there are just things you shouldn’t say. This rule doesn’t seem to be the same for homeowners. Here are a few things you hate to hear. #poolpros #aquamagazine #poolseason

poolfyi.com For those of us that live in the northern states of the U.S., let’s be honest—we just don’t get as much use of our pool as our friends do that live in Florida, Arizona, or California. On average, my pool is open four months out of the year and can be used about three of those months. So, what do you…
Also, it is important when adding chemical.
