Vanishing edge pools, also known as infinity pools or negative edge pools are a stunning addition to any backyard. However, they do come with a unique set of challenges when it comes to pool cover installation. As an experienced pool cover installer with decades of experience, we can confidently say that vanishing edge pool covers are the ultimate solution for your infinity pool.
Why You Need a Vanishing Edge Pool Cover
Vanishing edge pools are a sight to behold. Their unique design gives the illusion of an endless horizon, making it seem like the pool water flows seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. However, this design also means that these pools are more susceptible to debris and environmental factors such as wind, rain, and leaves. Without a proper cover, you may find yourself spending more time cleaning your pool than enjoying it.
Additionally, leaving your vanishing edge pool exposed to the elements, which a vanishing edge pool is more susceptible to than an inground pool can lead to the growth of algae and bacteria, which can be harmful to your health. A vanishing edge pool cover can help keep your pool clean and clear, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your backyard oasis.
Why Choose Vanishing Edge Pool Covers?
Vanishing edge pool covers are specifically designed to fit your infinity pool. They are custom-made to ensure a perfect fit and maximum protection. Unlike traditional pool covers, vanishing edge covers are installed using a track system that runs along the pool’s edge. This track system allows for easy opening and closing of the cover while keeping it securely in place.
Vanishing edge pool covers are available in a variety of vinyl and solid polycarbonate hard covers. Both types are great for keeping debris out while providing safety protection from falls and having push button open/close convenience.
The Benefits of Vanishing Edge Pool Covers
Vanishing edge pool covers offer several benefits, including:
- Protection from debris and environmental factors
- Easy to open and close
- Custom-made for a perfect fit
- Available in a variety of materials
By installing a vanishing edge pool cover, you can save money on energy costs by reducing the amount of water lost to evaporation. Additionally, you can extend the life of your pool equipment by keeping it protected from the elements.
Skilled Vanishing Edge Pool Cover Installers Are A Must
Precise tolerances require extra attention. The installation of automatic covers for infinity pools presents challenges due to the extremely precise tolerances involved. This implies that even minor errors can lead to issues if the architect, builder, or installer lacks a comprehensive understanding of the covers’ functionality. Ensuring the involvement of someone well-versed in the mechanics and physics of these covers is crucial for proper installation.
It is essential to accurately measure various components such as the pool itself, the vanishing edge height, and the distance between the wall’s top and the track on the vertical wall. This precision is particularly vital for vanishing edge pools, where the cover tolerances cannot deviate more than 1 to 2 inches.
This necessitates the pool being measured with impeccable accuracy. Regrettably, in some cases when the installer is brought in too late, complications during the installation process can ensue.
