My PB will be installing the auto cover in a few days, and my mason is trying to figure out how to do the coping (pavers) and concrete work at that end of the pool. I have pictures of the setup so far with the wooden box that the cover mechanism will fit into and the tracks leading to it. I'll post the pictures in a follow-up to this (I can't figure out how to initiate a new thread from Tapatalk and that's where I post photos from).
The big question is: what happens to the skimmer cover when the auto cover is installed? I assume it must be made flush with the rim of the pool, otherwise the cover will run into it.
I would LOVE to see some pictures from any of you who have an auto cover that show what this looks like in the finished product, especially if your skimmer is in a similar location to mine. Do you have to actually have the cover all the way open to check the skimmer?
My mason will have detailed info from the auto cover company (PennCo) on how to do the installation (they've been great to work with so far), but I think if he has photos of successful installations to look at it will be even clearer.
