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, an automatic pool cover can definitely be installed over your exising pool as long as there is ample deck space to create a rectangular shape without any obstacles such as elevated hot tubs or rock features. The deck area needs to have at least 2 feet of space on both the shallow end and deep end. The pool ladder can be made hingeable and if the mechanism is placed at the deep end, a minimum clearance of 14 inches is required.

 Typically a fabric will last 6-10 years, depending on how it is cared for and the environment that it is exposed to. Improper water chemistry plays the biggest role in early deterioration. Fabrics that are cracked, have holes, or look generally worn out, should be replaced. From a distance the cover may look not too bad, but upon closer inspection you may notice deterioration which can affect the covers performance and safety. Please be sure to inspect your cover and contact your pool cover specialist if your cover needs replacing.
