Everything You Need to Know About Automatic Pool Covers

Automatic pool covers are a great way to keep your pool safe and warm. They are made of a heavy vinyl material that is much more durable than a sun cover. Not only do they provide extra protection, but they can also add 10 to 15 degrees to the temperature of the pool.

These covers work with the help of tracks and a small, efficient engine. At one end of the pool, there is usually an elegant “roller” where the cover is stored when not in use. When the switch is activated, the motor turns on and the cover rolls around the pool area with the help of two tracks on each side. These tracks can be built inside or outside of the edge of the pool.

At the other end, there is a smaller reel that holds the rope or cables. Along the edges of the pool, there are straight tracks connecting the two rollers. The rope or cables go through these pathways. There are different types of automatic pool cover systems, such as deck rails, built-in deck rails, and below deck rails.

Latham automatic pool covers offer a wide variety of models, options, fabrics and colors. To get an automatic pool cover, contact your local independent dealer for a free on-site inspection and a quote. Older pool cover systems have old-fashioned technology that can lead to more repairs. An automatic pool cover can save you hundreds of dollars each year by preventing evaporation and helping you conserve water in your pool.

Simply turn a switch and your Coverstar or Pool Cover Specialists automatic safety cover will create a barrier over your pool that no child or pet can penetrate. If your pool qualifies for a system, you will have what is known as a “deck mounted track system” and it will be covered by the All-Safe manufacturer's warranty for parts or fabric replacement.
