Unravelling the Cost of Pool Covers in Kelowna

What’s the Cost of an Automatic Pool Cover in Kelowna?

The price of a safety pool cover in Kelowna depends on the size of your swimming pool and the type of material you choose. The price range for an automatic safety pool cover can fluctuate based on your overall pool design and the custom features you select.

There are three main features that influence the price of new retractable pool covers:

  • Materials
  • Track Options
  • Pool Size and Shape

Additionally, costs for a completely new build versus installing on an existing pool will differ. Given these variables, we can offer an estimated range of prices. An automatic safety cover in BC can start as low as $10,000 for a small, cocktail pool install or a basic under track setup for an existing pool, with the average for a larger existing pool being $14,000 to $15,000. For a larger pool with more complex custom features, a safety cover can cost upwards of $20,000, with a typical new build being $17,000 to $20,000.
