Advantages of Having a Retractable Cover for Your Pool

There are many advantages of having a retractable cover for your pool. Such cover offers a high level of convenience and safety. It also helps protect against debris and reduces heating costs and maintenance. You have to just turn a key or press a button and your pool will become protected.


When thinking of a retractable cover for your pool, many people think that such pools have to be rectangular in shape. However, that is not essential. But you should keep in mind that this type of pool cover has certain requirements, and you will have to have certain additions made to your pool. It will require that two parallel tracks are installed on each side of the pool. It is also essential that the tracks have the same elevation.

So the only case where the cover cannot be installed is when your pool has a shape where tracks cannot run along its length, this type of cover cannot be installed. However, modern equipment allows installing tracks on almost all types of pools and you will not have to worry.

There are many benefits of having a retractable cover for your pool. The most important ones are as following:


1. Easy to Use

Retractable pool covers are quite easy to use. They can be opened and closed in seconds by just pressing a button. These systems are fitted with a motor that makes operation quite easy.

2. No Need for Manual Lifting

A retractable swimming pool cover also eliminates any need for manually lifting the cover. The motor can instantly open or close the cover without any effort. This makes these covers convenient for even the elders. Traditionally, it was difficult to lift the pool covers so many people would use their pool less in the past.

3. Enhanced Safety

This type of pool cover also provides an enhanced level of safety. A retractable cover for a pool offers complete coverage. Besides, because it is easy to use, you can always easily cover your pool and prevent anyone from entering the water. It helps in effectively sealing the pool and gives you a higher sense of safety for your children and pets. Modern motor-based pool covers are also durable and can withstand a good amount of weight. Even if your child or pet walks over it, you will not have to worry that it may break or sink.

4. High Level of Flexibility

Another advantage of using a retractable pool cover is that it can be easily installed over your existing deck. It can also be installed with ease below the pool coping’s edge. You can also have it installed when your pool is being built.

5. Cleaner Pool

As already mentioned, a retractable cover for your pool will remain cleaner for longer. Because you can easily cover your pool, it will remain protected against debris for most of the time. This will help in reducing the amount of maintenance and cleaning required. Thus, you can keep leaves and dirt out of the pool for most of the year.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
