How to Have a Pool Cover Custom-MadeFebruary 8, 2020
You know you need a pool cover, whether to keep your pool safe, keep out debris, or both. But if your pool is an odd shape or has a water feature, not just any cover will do. This is how you can have a custom-made swimming pool cover.
Start by Identifying the Type of Cover You Want
For a reliable and convenient way to keep your pool safe, an automatic pool cover is an excellent choice. With the push of a button, you can seal or reveal your pool in minutes. Automatic covers work best on regularly shaped pools like squares or rectangles, but can be made to fit pools of other kinds with the right modifications.
In addition to convenience, automatic pool covers are also strong enough to stand on in an emergency; it feels a little like walking on a water bed. Custom-made automatic swimming pool covers also keep leaves and debris out of your pool, as well as reduce water evaporation. This helps to keep your pool warmer, water levels correct, and preserves the effect of chemistry like chlorine.
The Cost of Custom Automatic Pool Covers
Our most common installation is via deck-mounted top racks, but we also provide recessed top tracks, recessed undertracks, and more. The cost of a custom automatic pool cover will range from $6,000 to $15,000, depending on the size of your pool and the customization required. Your local All-Safe dealer can help you determine if an automatic pool cover will work for you.
If you have an obstruction preventing the installation of tracks along the sides of your pool, or an especially unique shape, a mesh pool cover may be a better option. All-Safe’s mesh covers are made from the strongest mesh material, independently tested by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
Using mesh for your custom-made swimming pool cover means you get security with the added benefit of protection from leaves and other debris. Mesh pool covers are an ideal way to cover your pool for long periods, like during winter. Mesh covers aren’t the best for daily use, they’re heavy and can take 30 minutes or more to attach or remove.
The Cost of Custom Mesh Pool Covers
Custom mesh pool covers will cost between $2,500 and $4,500, including installation and depending on your pool area setup, making them a slightly more affordable option than their automatic counterparts.
Leaf Pool Net Combination
If you’re planning a custom-made swimming pool cover for debris protection, consider a leaf pool cover. This cover type is lightweight and easy to apply or remove in about 5-15 minutes.
A leaf cover, while highly effective at keeping debris out of the water, is not a variety of safety equipment on its own and will not prevent your child from falling into the pool. We recommend pairing your leaf cover with a pool safety net.
Both custom-made leaf swimming pool covers and pool nets attach to the same anchors installed on your pool deck, making it even easier to get both types of cover at once. Leaf covers paired with pool nets only take about 5–15 minutes to remove and replace, so daily swimming while protecting your pool is easy.
The cost of your custom leaf pool cover will range from approximately $1,500 to $2,500, depending on the size and configuration of your pool.
