Automatic Top Track Safety Covers

- keeping the pool saferPool Covers Inc. Top Track Cover

Automatic Top-track pool covers can be fitted to many pools whether existing or new-builds

They are suitable for both rectangular and free-form pools

The best time to install one of these beauties is right from the beginning, during the build, when provision can be made to install the tracks and pit - hidden away below ground and under the pool coping. Having said that, Top-track covers can be retro-fitted to most pools

There are a variety of options available for existing pools: - installing the tracks on the pool coping or retro-fitting them beneath the coping, excavating a pit to house the roller mechanism or installing a box or bench to house it in

Top-track covers deploy and retract in under a minute and are typically operated by a switch-key or a remote control.  However the cover is operated, the control must be situated well out of the reach of kids so they cannot open or close the pool on their own

Some 'budget' top-track covers are offered with a manual winding mechanism and are quite a lot cheaper than the electrically or hydraulically operated models

Most, if not all, of this type of pool-cover are classified as Safety Covers.  It's possible to walk across the pool when the cover is deployed but, in the interests of safety, this should not be encouraged. Remember that, although this type of cover can bear the combined weight of many people, it is not a toy or a playground. Children, adults or pets should never be enticed or encouraged to walk or play on a cover

Covers with a pool of rainwater are serious drowning hazards unless the rainwater is removed.  Covers of this type are prone to collecting rainwater and this problem should be dealt with by the addition of an automatic cover-pump to remove the water as it appears.  Rainwater can be pumped directly back into the pool, where it will help to delay TDS and TA problems and keep the pool topped-up
