Meyco invented the ORIGINAL safety cover. Today the principles of innovation and integrity live on in every MeycoLite, RuggedMesh and PermaGuard pool cover. As a matter of fact, we INVENTED the ORIGINAL safety pool cover. Others may claim it, but in 1957, Fred J. Meyer, Jr., the founder of Meyco Products, invented the safety pool cover. In 1960, he was awarded a U.S. patent for his groundbreaking design. Crafted to exacting specifications, a Meyco Cover will outperform the competition.
