Building Permits just got easier with Kafko. The ICC evaluation service (ICC-ES) ensures that building products meet code requirements. A nonprofit public-benefit organization, the ICC-ES does technical evaluations of building products, components, methods, and materials. All Kafko manufactured products have been tested and approved by the ICC-ES. These products include:
- Kafko Steel Panels
- Kafko Multiflex Polymer Panel System
- Kafko Titan Polymer Pools
- Kafko True-Fit Vinyl Liners
- Kafko Wet Steps
- Kafko Safety Covers
How does this certification benefit the builder and consumer?
- Building inspectors look to the ICC-ES evaluation reports for evidence that the products and systems are code-compliant.
- Inspectors #1 choice for approving building codes are ICC-ES certified products.
- Builders can receive a standardized branded pool blueprint coded with the ICC-ES report #, stamped and signed by a state licensed engineer!
- Even though the entire permit process is streamlined, final permit approval is up to the discretion of each municipality's code official. ICC-ES certification takes much of the burden of permit approval off the inspector.
Contact your local Kafko Builder or regional distribution center to find out more about ICC-ES Certification.

Safety Cover FAQs
Where should the water level be for closing a pool with a winter safety cover? The water level should be kept with in 12" of the top of the pool wall.
What is the proper spring tension? Initially, adjust the straps so that the springs are set to at least half compression. This will keep the cover tight and aid in draining. The springs should be checked periodically and the straps adjusted to maintain this tension.
Should I treat the pool with chemicals before closing? Be sure your pool has the proper level of sanitizer and algaecide before closing it for the winter. This will insure that the water is clear upon opening in the spring. If the cover is left on when the temperature has gone beyond 60 degrees Fahrenheit or 15 degrees Celsius it may be necessary to add algaecide to maintain clarity.
Should I remove snow and ice from the cover over winter? Very large accumulations of snow should be carefully removed, taking precautions not to damage the cover. Likewise if a large puddle of water accumulates it should be removed immediately by draining it to the drain or by using a weighted cover pump. The straps should be adjusted to prevent a reoccurrence. Failure to perform this maintenance could result in stretching or damage to the cover components. Drainage can be facilitated by slightly loosening the strap that runs through the drain areas while tightening the straps away from the drain. A small amount of puddling is normal and will evaporate in dry weather. If you have questions about these or any procedures, please contact your Kafko Dealer.
How does debris like leaves and pine needles affect my cover? Covered pools in heavily wooded areas are susceptible to accumulation of leaves, needles and other debris that will inhibit water flow thru a mesh cover or to and through the "Invis-a-Drain" on a solid cover. It is very important to keep the drain clear of debris at all times.
How do I protect my cover if I have a rough coping or pool edge? For covers not ordered with sewn on padding, it is required that our loose 2' x 20' padding be placed as a barrier between rough or sharp coping and the cover itself. Periodic inspection of the cover is necessary for detection of early signs of wear.
Are there any special instructions for removal and storage of my safety cover? The cover should be hosed off removing any debris that accumulated over the winter. If you have a cover with the Invis-a-drain you should clear the drain also. Before folding the cover make sure it is completely dry. Cover cleaner and treatments, available from your Kafko Dealer, are also recommended.
Do the anchors require any special care? After removing or prior to installing the cover, clean out all the anchor sockets with a stream of compressed air or water. This biannual cleaning will assure proper anchor function. Applying spray silicone to these components will also be beneficial to their proper operation. During the spring and summer when the cover is not in use, screw anchors down completely to keep out debris and to eliminate a tripping hazard.
