The solar in-ground pool covers do not differ to the regular ones in terms of design, size and looks. You can get a model of any shape. There are even custom made ones. The solar models do not contain any batteries or wires. They are made from a special resin material that lets the sun rays through. It is perfectly transparent. The pool covers made from this material remind of the ones for green houses. Given that the blanket is transparent, you will definitely enjoy the blue color of the water even on colder days.
The leading edge of the cover system can be completely tucked under the recessed housing lid by using custom designed brackets that extend towards the water’s edge. The lowered bond beam is then notched during construction stage, to allow for a pocket for the rigid leading edge of the cover to tuck into. Water level needs to be taken into consideration during construction to keep the leading edge from dragging through the water. This can be accomplished by the lowering of the skimmers one to two inches from normal elevation.
In the modern age of swimming pool design there are virtually unlimited ways to incorporate an automatic pool cover into the build. In the past, you were pretty much limited to a plain rectangle pool with an industrial looking aluminum lid to cover the recessed mechanism housing. This mind-set has become a thing of the past.
