    The Estimates Are In - What Kind of Cover To Buy?

    Hey all,

    I am going to pull the trigger and get a new mesh safety cover for our pool. I am going to send in our old cover (Century brand - not made any more for custom shape) to use as a template so I can use the existing anchors. I have gotten quotes for the brands that offer this service and have listed them below. I have taken Loop Loc off the list since it is too far over budget.

    Any manufacturers have advantages? Also, the shipping charges could be a factor as I haven't researched what the costs would be.

    I've listed the quotes below. Any opinions would be helpful. Thanks.

    Just by warranty, I would go with 3 year and 30 year... The more they stand behind the product the better, with that said, if the company goes out of business your warranty is gone

    All I can ad is that we have a solid Meyco with the mesh down the center for draining purpose. We have had our pool for three years and its a great cover. Well built and I love the fact the it lets no light in.
