To ensure your pool cover withstands the elements and the test of time, follow these best practices for pool cover maintenance.
Sweep off dirt and debris regularly. Keep your cover free from dirt and debris that can easily collect on top of the cover, in the track, or in the auto cover housing.
Maintain and repair your sliders and pulleys, where necessary. Even though Coverstar automatic pool covers are the most reliable on the market, they still require care and maintenance to function well into the future. The pulleys and sliders that are used to automatically expand and retract your pool’s cover will experience wear and tear over time, so be sure to change these parts out regularly.
Replace fabric as needed. A pool cover that doesn’t protect your pool is useless, which is why it’s important to practice routine maintenance and periodic inspections of your pool cover. Pool chemicals, temperature variations, ultraviolet light, and general wear and tear can break down the pool cover fabric over time. Every month, inspect your pool cover for any cracks, peeling, or weak spots. This can help keep a small problem from turning into a big one.
