Not every pool is a perfect candidate for a pool safety cover but often we can overcome various challenges.
Deck space is often more a limiting factor than the shape of the pool. Feel free to send us in a picture and we can have a better idea as to what can be done?
Concerned about tracks mounted on the deck? Don’t be. The track profile is designed so it is not a tripping hazard and in fact it is not much different than a transition strip from say, hardwood to tile.
Where does the mechanism go? Typically in the deep end requiring a minimum of 12″ of clearance. We have some simple but attractive mechanism protective ends or a custom bench can be built.
Kidney or free form, let’s have a look at it!
Although not intended to be walked on, our covers can hold an enormous amount of weight as long as the normal water level is maintained. Often after our installation and during our customer orientation, our techs will walk on the cover to demonstrate the strength of the cover.
We have some great pictures and videos with a moose, some bears, and a golf cart on a cover ( not all at once), with no cover damage.
Yes, we can- provided there is enough deck space to form a rectangle with no raised objects ( elevated hot tub, rock features) in the way. Typically we need a minimum of 2’ of space on the deck area at both shallow end and deep end. A pool ladder can be hinged and we would need a minimum of 14” of clearance if the mechanism is to be mounted at the deep end.
New build: $16,000- $18,000, we would encourage you to speak to your pool builder.
Existing pool: $12,000-$13,000 (cover only). There are electrical concerns and in some cases a person may want to build a bench over the mechanism which would add to costs. We have some talented carpenters that we have worked with that we can recommend.
