An automatic pool cover is an innovative solution designed to keep your swimming pool clean, safe, and protected from the elements. This type of cover is motorized and can be easily operated using a remote control or a switch.
The main purpose of an automatic pool cover is to provide safety by preventing accidental drowning and unauthorised access to the pool. The durable fabric covers are strong enough the handle the weight of a small family so any child or pet falling in can easily stand on them. Many automatic pool covers come equipped with a locking mechanism, which can be activated to prevent small children or pets from falling into the pool when it is not in use. This can provide you with peace of mind, especially if you have young children or pets that may be tempted to explore the pool area.
Benefits Of Owning An Automatic Pool Cover
Auto pool safety covers offer you peace of mind in your backyard. These pool covers come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit almost any pool size. They are custom-built to provide a safe barrier that prevents accidents from happening by keeping your children and pets safe.
A pool cover is a great way to keep heat in the pool. It can be used to cover the water and keep it warm, or it can be used to cover the surface of the water and reduce evaporation. The more heated water means a more comfortable swim!
Your pool will also require less maintenance. This is because the water is cleaner, so fewer contaminants will get into the pool. Less dirt and leaves will fall in and you will have to clean it less; and filters and traps will need to be cleaned less often too.
One of the most critical component to keep in imind when maintaining a pool is to keep the chemical balance. When there is no solar exposure, the water will stay balanced for much longer than if it was exposed to sunlight when algae and other growth occurs. Less chemicals and filtering pump use will save you money over the long term.
Auto pool covers can be programmed to turn on automatically at specific times to keep sun exposure to a minimum, reducing chemical costs and making your filters and pumps work less, reducing wear and tear on your equipment.

Infinity pools in BC are a popular new design that have a vanishing edge, making you feel as if you are one with the horizon, floating above the landscape. They can be built around one or more sides and provide a captivating sight.
These new types of pools go by different names:
- infinity edge pools
- vanishing edge pools
- disappearing edge pools
These pools are the hottest trend for home swimming pools where the water flows over one or more edges, creating a visual effect of water with no boundary. Many types of these zero edge pools are designed so that edge appears to merge with a larger body of water like a lake, ocean or the sky. To produce the beautiful aesthetic of these pools require more design and engineering than the typical one level pool.
Infinity pools are designed to look beautiful, with the water appearing to fall over the edge of the pool. An automatic cover is a great addition to these pools because it adds to the clean lines of the design. But when installing a cover on an infinity pool, there are some things to consider, like how the water will be displaced and the height difference of the tracks.
Installing automatic covers on infinity pools is tricky because the tolerances are very tight. This means that even small mistakes can cause problems if the architect, builder, or installer doesn’t understand how the covers work. It’s important to have someone who knows the mechanics and physics of these covers to make sure they’re installed correctly.
The manual pool cover presents a cost-effective option to the automatic cover, delivering almost all the advantages at less expense. It is a user-operated cover that is simple to use even on a daily basis, as it does not require any irksome straps, sandbags, or anchors like mesh covers. To cover the pool, the user grabs the rope linked to the forefront and drag the cover over the pool. To uncover the pool, rotate the crank handle.
The manual pool cover system can use the same track, fabric and other components as the automatic system with the exception of the motor.
Since the manual pool cover system can use the same track, fabric and other components as a fully automatic cover, the manual system can be upgraded at a later date to a fully automatic cover.
Less Maintenance & Cleaning
In addition to safety auto pool covers prevent debris and other unwanted materials from falling into the pool. This can help to reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep the pool clean and can save you both time and money. Leaves, dirt, and other debris can quickly accumulate in your pool, which can lead to a host of problems including algae growth, cloudy water, and the need for extra chemicals.
Multiple Colour Options
Automatic pool covers are available in a range of materials including vinyl and solid covers. Vinyl covers are the most common, as they are durable and easy to maintain. Solid covers are the most heavy-duty and can provide added solar insulation and protection against the elements. Both types come in a variety of colours to match your backyard decor.
Options For All Pool Shapes
Installing an automatic pool cover is a relatively simple process when completed by professional pool cover installers. The cover can be customised to fit the size and shape of your pool, even kidney or irregular sized shapes ensuring a perfect fit that will provide maximum protection and safety.
Clean Cover Storage
When not in use, the cover can be easily retracted and stored in a housing unit located at the edge of the pool. This housing can either be above ground hidden in a bench or hidden underground in the pool deck. This allows you to enjoy the full use of your pool without having to worry about the cover getting in the way or becoming a trip hazard.
