Tips for Automatic Pool Covers

Increase the lifespan of your cover

When appropriate, open your pool cover at least once a week to prevent premature fabric wear and gas built up by chemicals.

Tracks

Keep your tracks clean. Far too often a service-related problem is due to dirty tracks. Save yourself the frustration and flush out your tracks with a garden hose and sprayer twice a year (more if your landscaping is not complete).

Drain Box

If possible, inspect the drain box in the recessed housing box. Keeping the drain-line and housing free of leaves and debris will keep your system working in good order.

Water Levels

Proper water levels are crucial to good cover maintenance. If water levels drop below mid-skimmer level, it places stress on the cover, webbing, ropes, and tracks. Additionally, low water levels could suggest a slow leak in your pool.

Opening and Closing your Pool Cover

While pool toys and sunscreen are staples around most pools, they don’t belong on the cover. Before opening and closing your cover, be sure to remove all pool toys and objects in and around the pool. Don’t let a pool noodle, mistakenly rolled up in your cover, be the cause of a service call.

Pool Chemistry

When shocking or super chlorinating your pool, if possible, leave your pool uncovered with the filtration operating until the chlorine reading has reached a swim safe level. *The pool should not be left unsupervised when the cover is open.

Remove Standing Water

Be sure to pump off any standing water with your cover pump. Too much water sitting on your cover can damage your system or pull the cover out of the tracks.

Cover Pump Tips

  • Place the pump on the area of the cover water tends to collect or pool.
  • Be sure to remove the pump from the cover during freezing temperatures and severe snowfall.
  • Direct the pump’s hose to an area that drain’s away from the pool and housing. If you want to ditch the hose, try our CoverBlast pump attachment. Cover Blast attaches to your pump and blasts the water up and away! See The Cover Blast in action

Replacement Covers

Have you noticed your cover is brittle, faded, or developing leaks?
Over time, the sun’s UV rays above your cover and chemical degradation below your cover takes its toll.
Often this leads to your cover developing cracks or dry rotting and adding stress and unnecessary wear to your system – not to mention making your cover unsafe.
It may be time for a replacement cover.

Tips for Loop Loc Mesh Covers

Extend the life of your mesh cover and ensure that it is ready for use when it’s time to winterize your pool.

Follow these 5 easy steps and your cover will last longer and protect what matters better!

Bubbles the elephant

Be sure to clean the cover BEFORE you remove it.

With all the winter debris sitting on your cover, be sure to hose off, with your standard garden sprayer, the debris. No one wants all those leaves and twigs in the pool and you certainly don’t want one of those twigs possibly tearing your cover.

Remove the cover springs and screw down the anchors.

The installation rod that came with your cover is the perfect tool for removing the springs from the anchors.   After all the springs are removed, take the hex key (also included with our cover) to lower the brass anchors down into the deck. *By lowering the anchors into the deck, you’ll be reducing the risk of your cover getting snagged during the removal process.  *This step is important so do not bypass it.

Proper removal of the mesh safety cover.

The way you remove our cover from your pool is important for minimizing damage risks.  Start at one end of the cover and fold the cover in small sections in an accordion-style until you reach the end.  Then without dragging the cover, carefully remove it from the end of the swimming pool and set it on a flat clean surface.

Clean the Cover Thoroughly.

Far too many owners bypass this step entirely, but not cleaning the cover before storing it for any length of time is a big mistake.  *To clean the cover, you will want to spread it out on a clean section of your lawn and clean it thoroughly using a mild detergent mixed with water.  If the cover is extremely dirty, then you can use a pool brush to scrub the dirt and grime from the cover.  Rinse the soapy water using a hose and let it dry.
*Landscape note – be careful not to let your cover sit on your grass for an extended period of time or it can harm your lawn.

Store your winter mesh pool cover properly.

Wait for your cover to completely dry before storing it away.  This will help reduce the risk of mold and mildew from growing on it over the summer.  Once it is dry, fold the cover in half as many times as possible until it is small enough to fit in the storage bag that was supplied with it.  This can be a difficult process to do on one’s own, so be sure to have a helper on hand.
Now that the cover is in the storage bag, do not store the bag on the floor.  Hang the bag high off the floor so no rodents can burrow or chew holes into it over the summer.  If necessary, store the cover in a covered plastic bin or in a large garbage pail.  This will help ensure that once the swimming season is over, your swimming pool safety cover will be in good shape and ready to be reinstalled in the fall!
