For those of you with an auto cover, im curious what your vault looks like. The actual vault /enclosure itself and also the bracketry for the lid. I cleaned mine when we first moved in 8 months ago and didnt think much of it. I cleaned it out again today and something dawned on me. We have the cover on 90%of the time when we arent swimming, maybe more. I would think the pool would be spotless upon opening. Also the KK runs almost all the time the pump is on. Pool always has debris in it. Always.
I realized today the vault isnt encased in concrete. The bottom of it is just dirt. Im thinking now that as the cover rolls up, if its hitting the dirt..its obviously sticking to the underside of the cover. So when i close it...that debris is being strung along the pool from the underside of the cover. Just a theory, didnt have much time to look into it more.
So it makes me curious what your vaults/enclosures are made of and design. This one is from late 80's so i would assume they are a little better design now.
Wouldnt you assume with the cover in place so much and the KK on top of that the pool would be pretty spotless upon opening the cover?
Any pics of your enclosures are appreciated as well as thoughts or comments.
