frequently asked questions
How much weight can the aqua-net hold?
The Aqua-Net is designed to support the weight of two adults and a child. This is to allow for a rescue should it be required.
Will my child get stuck in the net?
The open mesh design prevents a child from being able to move forward towards the centre of the pool. Should they fall onto the net, they get stuck at the edge of the pool. It is an unpleasant situation and will result in the child crying, which will alert others to the situation.

The Aqua-Net is a simple system that can easily be fitted and removed by an adult. Manufactured from UV treated polyethylene braid, the Aqua-Net has a breaking strain in excess of 150 kg. The pre-shrunk, machine manufactured 80mm mesh netting adheres to international safety net standards.
Designed to support a crawling baby off the water at the edge of the pool, the 80mm mesh is large enough to inhibit movement on the net, but small enough not to allow a child’s head through the net.
A crawling baby falling onto the Aqua-Net will be supported off the water. Arms and legs will go through the net, preventing further movement away from the edge of the pool. It will be an unpleasant experience, which will result in the child crying thus alerting parents or a carer to the situation.
As children grow and become heavier, they may come in contact with the water should they fall onto the net. However, an older child will be able to push themselves up and away from the water, cry and alert a person’s attention.
It is unlikely that there will ever be an occasion when a child is left unsupervised for any length of time. The Aqua-Net provides the extra minutes needed between a child wandering off on their own and the moment that they are missed.
A child cannot lift up or crawl under an Aqua-Net. The unique Central Tension System is made up of 11 pulleys built into the net.
A central float is standard. The float keeps the net at a constant height above the water, even if the water level rises. The float also supports the net toward the center of the pool. Custom fitted to any shape or size pool, pond or spa. Available in Blue or Black

What are the components?
The UV treated polyethylene braid is made from high density virgin polymer. It is machine manufactured, square 80mm mesh using a 3,5mm braid.
Never leave the net off the pool lying in the sun for any extended period of time. It is possible for the netting to shrink if exposed to temperature extremes. With a breaking strain in excess of 150kg per strand the Aqua-Net will easily support the weight of a child or even an adult. Available in Blue or Black.
The Aqua-Net is fitted using fully adjustable, self locking anchor plates. Manufactured from either stainless steel or glass-filled nylon. The glass filled nylon anchors are available in four different colours – terracotta, beige, grey and black.
The anchor plate is designed so that children cannot stub their toes or hurt their feet. The anchor plate will not clog with dirt or dust. A superior anchor system to the simple “hole in the paving method”, it allows for the hooks to be locked in place and makes it impossible for a small child to remove the anchors when central tension system is tensioned. Designed to last the lifespan of the net (6-8 years).
Anchoring system used where rocks or vertical walls are present. Manufactured from stainless steel with a brass anchor.

Is the net easy to use?

Is the Aqua-net SABS approved?
The Aqua-Net adheres to SABS standard SANS 10134 : 2018 – Safety of private swimming pools.
This is a code a practice which lays down responsibilities, principles, methods, and planning techniques for the protection of children from the hazards of swimming pools situated on private premises, and makes recommendations for the design and installation of typical protective devices that are intended to prevent a child from gaining access to a swimming pool.
Is maintenance required?
The Aqua-Net requires little regular maintenance. There are however some important things to remember
Never leave the net off the pool lying in the sun for any extended period of time. It is possible for the netting to shrink if exposed to temperature extremes.
Dogs may chew the net to drink water. Should this happen it is possible to repair the net depending on the extent of the damage. Contact your nearest branch for assistance in this regard. A Dog repellent spray is available to assist in discouraging dogs from chewing the net.
Glass filled nylon anchor plates can wear/degrade over time. Any plate that shows signs of wear should be replaced to ensure the ongoing safety of the Aqua-Net.
Stainless steel anchors can bend at the keyhole slots. Tap the keyhole slot back into position, if wear is apparent.
The float should not be dropped or thrown as it can crack. Should the float become filled with water due to rain, it is advisable to allow the water to drain through the hole in the top of the float before refitting the float in the net.
The Aqua-Net is resistant to chlorine so it is fine to add chlorine by throwing it through the net. It is best, however, to add chemicals such as chlorine and specifically pool acid at the weir. Should the net need to be removed for an extended time period, wash it down with fresh water, fold it neatly and store out of direct sunlight in a cool environment, free from any rodents.
