This will be the first season with my new pool/house. There is an electric pool cover that surprisingly worked. When the pool was opened last week, I closed the cover and all was working well. Some background, I have 3 young children and installed a pool fence around the pool. This cover added redundancy. In addition to redundancy, I was excited at the prospect of using it as it would save me $ on heating, and keep junk out of the pool.
When I closed the cover, I walked on it to see how sturdy it was, and held me no problem. Just guessing, I assume the prior owner's haven't used this cover in 2-3 years.
It's been raining in my area for the past few day. There was a decent amount of rain water on the cover, but nothing crazy. Yesterday, I pumped the water off and opened the cover. It got stuck half way. Upon further inspection, I noticed a big tear on one side. On that same side where the rope meets the track, the cover detached from the rope. Essentially nothing is holding a section of the cover to the side. I tried to monkey taping the rip so I could close the cover, but no dice. I think I'm just gonna open the cover and leave it be until I can afford to replace it.
Does anyone by chance know the maker of this cover? I want to find out what it would cost to replace the tarp/cover.
