From a standard rectangular Fiberglass pool to a beautiful freeform shape…in most cases, and with a little pre-planning…a Pool Cover Specialists® automatic swimming pool cover can easily fit into your design and budget!
The answer is…Yes! In fact, with over 35 years experience in manufacturing automatic swimming pool covers, we have designed specific track and system options that work perfectly with Fiberglass pools.
Decide Which System Is Right for You
Now that you know you can have an automatic pool cover, you just need to decide which system is right for you and what your budget is. Keep in mind, regardless of your budget…an automatic swimming pool is classified as a standalone barrier in many states and is also a “vapor barrier” which means that if your pool is heated, just by adding a pool cover you can reduce your heating costs by as much as 85%, making it possible to have a return on your investment in as little as 2 to 4 years.
We Have the System to Meet Your Needs
We have the system to meet your needs no matter if it’s new construction or an existing pool. From our incredibly convenient and budget conscious fully manual system the ManualTrak, to our fully automatic lines of the INFINITY 4000™, you will be amazed at what we can do with a Pool Cover and your pool!
Just like Building a Home…You Have to Start with a Strong Foundation
With a pool cover you need a solid “deck” and a well constructed Concrete, or Pool Cover Specialists® Polymer Housing Vault (which attaches right to the Fiberglass Pool Shell lip), unless you are going to place the pool cover mechanism on top of the deck (usually done with pre-existing pools). The pool deck and vault determine the type of pool cover system that can be installed, and can add more options and benefits for beautiful aesthetics, easy installation and years of hassle free maintenance.
Do Your Pre-Planning
Doing this pre-planning will help you achieve the beautiful and functional design you want…and provide you with the safety, energy & water conserving benefits of a Pool Cover Specialists® automatic pool cover.
Account for Your Pool Features
Second…make sure all the different water features, fountains, waterfalls, slides, ladders, stairs, rock formations, volley ball or basketball posts, skimmer boxes, etc. are considered into the design and are built in such a way to accommodate the vault, tracks, and leading edge bar that pulls the cover onto the pool.
This is actually extremely simple and can easily be designed into your pool with a little forethought and planning. In many cases, when planned into the design, you can’t even tell a pool has an automatic cover.
Consider the Shape of Your Pool
Third…the shape of your pool must be considered…rectangles are elegant and easy, but even free form, kidney or other designed shapes, in many cases, can easily be covered if you plan ahead and remember that there are basic design limitations with all automatic safety covers…namely…you have to be able to put two straight edges somewhere on each side of the pool. BUT…just because you have straight lines on each side of the pool doesn’t mean you cannot be creative and use deck-on-deck or extreme cantilever designs to follow the shape of your pool.
Don’t get nervous about this last statement…
We have many options to help you get the effect you are looking for. We will insure your installation matches your home design.
Don’t guess…let us help! Our trained staff of consultants can walk through it with you and your installer, or we probably have a factory trained installer in your area who can work with you and get you through the whole simple process.
