Automatic pool covers are the ultimate in safety and convenience for in ground swimming pools. There are many reasons to consider an automatic cover but none more important than the safety of your family.
Once closed, the cover is designed to make the pool completely un-accessible to small children. This represents the ultimate in peace of mind for any parent.
Automatic covers also greatly reduce heating costs, chemical cost, evaporation and time required to clean the pool.
We would also remind anyone considering this option that the fabric used on automatic covers does have a useful live of 7 to 10 years. As with pool liners, periodic fabric replacement is required. This lifespan can be significantly enhanced by investing in a traditional safety mesh winter cover to be used during the off season. The average cost to replace an automatic cover fabric is 2500 to 3 thousand dollars.
Of the many options available today for in ground pools, automatic covers are one of the higher priced. Again, depending the size of the pool, expect to spend an additional 12 to 15 thousand dollars for this high end option.
