We are proudly introducing this most innovative UK product form our partners at Intopool to the US market which is available for pools up to 20 feet wide.
Enabling ease of deployment is a huge key to promoting enjoyable pool cover use. This innovation makes it possible for one person to cover most any rectangular pool with just one central pull point. The edge design is hollow and remains buoyant as it easily glides across water. Although some cutting with a hacksaw and drilling with a ¼” drill is required (tools are not included), installation is easy. A detachable rope allows for safe out of the way storage. If installed on a Roman end pool, the cover should be cut square along the edge and a crescent-shaped single cover piece can easily be added and removed by hand to fill the gap.
The extruded shape and ABS plastic construction of this leading edge helps prevent trapping of debris that typically accumulate promoting mold and bacteria with other edge systems.
This innovative storage sheet reflects the sun’s heat and protects your investment in a cover by;
• Protecting your cover from solar damage when off the pool
• Reducing the temperature of a stored pool cover by 30°C +
Typically, when a swimming pool bubble cover is not in use it is stored on a reel system or folded close to the pool and with repeated exposure to direct sunlight, unprotected stored bubble covers will suffer permanent damage.
This can be avoided by using the Reflective Storage Sheet which uses the proven technology of the CoolGuard™ swimming pool cover that keeps a pool cool. It is this product's opaque light blue top surface that reflects the sun’s heat and a black underside that prevents light reaching the pool cover, which combine to reduce the temperature of the stored cover. When on the rolled up pool cover, the reflective sheet can easily be secured using adjustable cords, which are also included in each cover purchase.
In the summer of 2009, independent scientific tests conducted in the UK showed that when a bubble cover is left on a reel system in direct sunlight, it reached temperatures in excess of 170°F / 77°C (this would be much higher in hotter climates). The graph shows how dramatically the Reflective Storage Cover can reduce the cover’s temperature by over 54°F / 30°C.
*NOTE: The use of reflective storage sheet is mandatory to protect stored solar pool covers against damage and to comply with material warranty requirements. Alternately if you are not storing your cover on a reel, it must be stored completely in the shade.
Reflective storage sheet cords ship with each cover order for securing the sheets to the solar cover when stored on a reel.
Our adjustable length reel cover storage cords are manufactured for WeatherBeater® specifically for this application. The tension is also adjustable and there’s minimal exposed metal parts that can impart heat or otherwise melt into a reflective sheet and the solar cover itself during hot sunny days. The cord material is UV resistant polyester paracord.
The only ladder hinge you'll ever need. Can't be seen under the escutcheon, and fits all 1.9" ladder rails.
