Automatic pool covers like this infinity edge pool cover we installed recently in North Vancouver are becoming really popular these days because they’re super convenient – you can open and close your pool with just the push of a button. Plus, they keep your pool safe and protected when it’s not in use.
However, installing these covers can be a bit tricky, especially infinity edge pool covers (also known as an vanishing edge pools). These pools are built for their beauty and having an automatic cover that complements the clean lines of the water falling over the edge is just perfect. However, there are a few things to consider when installing covers on this type of pool, such as water displacement and track height differential.
That’s why it’s really important to have someone with expertise in designing, and installing automatic covers work on your vanishing edge pool. With their skills and knowledge, they can help you get the most out of your pool and ensure that your automatic cover works perfectly.
If you’re planning on installing an automatic pool cover on a vanishing edge pool, there are a few things you should keep in mind to make sure it goes smoothly. Here are some do’s to follow:
DO consult an automatic cover specialist early on in the design process of your infinity edge pool cover project. They can help you make sure that your pool is designed in a way that will work well with an automatic cover.
DO understand that vanishing edge pools lose water differently than normal pools, and this can affect how well the cover functions. Make sure you understand this and plan accordingly.
DO include a drain in the trough of the cover area, so that any water that gets in there can make its way back into the catch basin and recirculate into the pool.
DO understand the importance of having a minimal track height differential. This keeps the track hidden and ensure that the cover functions smoothly. The extra tolerances required for this type of pool means getting everyone involved early in the process. For this build the architect, pool builder, cover builder and North Vancouver pool cover owner go together early in the planning for these tight tolerances so there were no surprises or extra costs late in the process.
This makes for a happy pool owner who got his pool and cover installed on time and on budget! Read about our other successful install of an infinity edge pool cover in Kelowna.
