No longer do the tracks have to be mounted to the underside of the pool coping. The new standard in the industry is to mount a receiver piece (encapsulation) on the pool bond beam before the coping is installed. This receiver then accepts the track and is held in place by a marriage groove after a plastic shim is inserted. This method has two main benefits. The first is the elimination of tracks pulling loose from the coping. The second allows for thinner and less dense coping stones. Using this type of encapsulated track allows for a pool in pool design as well. The swimming pool can be of freeform design but with the benefit of a below deck and hidden pool cover system. The outside perimeter of the swimming pool remains rectangular with a step-down onto the lower deck surface around the swimming pool. In effect, you have a picture frame around your pool.
Pool covers should be strong. Its function is not only to keep your pool clean, but also to provide safety. The purpose of using a pool cover is to prevent accidental drowning and entering of dirt or debris.
The second justification for a pool cover involves water temperature. Above ground pool covers can really help keep water warmer, which is always appreciated by early morning swimmers and by those who would just like to add a few days to the swimming season.
