What Can a Manual Pool Cover Do For Your Existing Pool?

A hands-on experience to superior safety and comfort around your pool.

Since beginning operations in 1995, we’ve seen technology evolve and have stayed at the top of our game, leading the industry in western Canada. Our manual pool covers are convenient enough for daily use with no cumbersome straps, sandbags or anchors. 

A manual cover works by holding the rope attached to the leading edge and pulling the cover across the pool. When you want to uncover the pool, turn the crank handle. 

Size limitations

Manual covers are not available for every pool, and are limited by pool size—they are available for smaller, existing pools only. Not sure if your pool qualifies? Get in touch. 

The manual system uses the same track, fabric and other components as the automatic system, however contains no motor. When you want to take the plunge, it’s possible to upgrade the manual system to automatic at a later date. 

All the benefits

Even though the cover is being hand-operated, it still provides all of the safety, cost and maintenance benefits of the auto pool cover. 

Besides offering worry-free security, our manual pool covers save heat, chemicals and make cleaning simple while extending the life of your equipment. 

We’ve got you covered

With over two decades of experience and locations in Vancouver and Kelowna, we’re able to provide the safety and convenience you need on your existing pool, whether you opt for manual or automatic.
