When you‘re looking for a cover, take your time and don‘t rush the process. Remember that manufacturers have made a wide range of products to suit the needs of any potential owners. Covers are available in many different sizes and for various shapes. If you can‘t find one that perfectly fits your pool, you can even have it custom made.
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 are very effective at keeping leaves and rubbish from entering the pool, some more so than others. Some types of covers are specifically designed for this purpose, such as the "leaf and debris˝cover. These are a weave type of fabric and are made larger than the pool surface so as to overlap the pool around its circumference. They are fixed at regular intervals around the pool, and even though the fabric is porous, the weave is so fine that it even provides good protection against dust entering the pool.
