About Us 2018-07-04T21:23:34-05:00

Innovative, high quality, low maintenance, and extremely reliable products!

American Pool Safety is a family owned and operated business that’s been around for over 25 years. Marc Young (founder) had over 40 years experience in the Pool Cover industry. Originally from Albuquerque, NM, Marc made the 2500 mile move to Connecticut while working for Pool Saver. During his time with Pool Saver, Marc became known as “The Cover God” because he was able to cover pools that most would walk away from.
“If there’s a way to do it, I’ll make it happen.” Marc was true to his word.
Marc went off to start his own company 10 years later and partnered up with Aquamatic Cover Systems to become their Northeast Distributor. Aquamatic has innovative and homeowner friendly designs that worked with his motto. (They also have the best warranty in the industry…there’s nothing wrong with having a happy customer.)
APSS (like most) had very humble beginnings. This “one man show” was based out of a small office located above a garage in Norwalk, CT. In 2002, APSS moved to it’s current location which is a 6000 square foot warehouse centrally located in Bridgeport, CT.
Sadly, Marc passed away in 2014. It was Marc’s wish that the company he poured so much into, carry on.

Scott will make it happen.
