  • The Tara A-B App is an easy an effective tool for measuring safety covers. When you use the app you reduce the chance of errors. The app displays your measurements as you go and gives you the opportunity to verify that the diagram matches the shape of the pool before you leave the job-site. You can send you order directly from the app saving you time and expediting the order. This article explains how you can use the app to measure safety covers quickly and accurately.


    Available for free on the Apple App store, the Tara A-B App is a simple and effective tool for measuring pools and safety covers. You’ll find that entering your measurements is quick and intuitive. After you enter the A and B measurement for any point it will be displayed in the app. As you enter more points, you can see the diagram of the pool take shape. Compare the diagram to the to the pool perimeter to ensure accuracy. Once you are done, you can easily check cross measurements and verify them in the app. If everything checks out, you can fill out an order form and place your order from the app. The Tara A-B App saves time, prevents errors and expedites your order.


    To begin your measurement, start by establishing your A and B points. They should be at least 3' outside the perimeter of the existing anchors and a minimum of 15’ apart. We recommend using stakes to mark your A and B points so that they stay fixed and do not move. You must use the same A and B points for measuring the anchor locations and the pool perimeter. We recommend placing the A point on the shallow end of the pool.


    Starting at the halfway point on the long side of the pool, number every fifth anchor using chalk or dot stickers. For areas where multiple anchors are grouped together, number each one, to avoid confusion. When you make it back to your first anchor, begin numbering points on the pool perimeter continuing the sequence of numbers. Keep in mind a complete A-B of the pool, is not necessary. You need enough points to establish the overlap necessary to construct the cover. See the example.


    Open the Tara A-B app and follow the set-up so it matches the orientation of your A and B points. You will also select whether you will be using one tape measure or two. Beginning at point number 1, start the measuring process. As you get to a number on the deck, ensure that you are at the corresponding number in the app. Once you have recorded all the anchor location points, move to the points around the pool perimeter.


    At this point, having the Tara A-B App will come in very handy. You can quickly check your cross dimensions in the app by switching to full screen mode and selecting any two points. You can also verify that the shape of the pool diagram matches the shape of the pool and anchor perimeter. This will ensure your measurements are accurate before you leave the job-site saving you additional trips back to the pool.


    Now that you have verified your measurements and everything checks out, you can complete your order. There is a simplified safety cover order form for the app. You will use this form to enter information not given in the app. You can simply fill out the information requested on the Tara A-B order form and photograph it. When you hit “Submit” in the app, it will allow you to attach the photo of your order form to an email containing your measurements. Please include your company name and job name in the subject line of the email. In the body of the email, please note the point numbers associated with critical points, such as the beginning of obstructions.
