    Coverstar Auto Cover Pricing?

    I'm in the process of getting bids on a new pool. Basic specs are a 20x40 gunite rectangle. We got a price for a Coverstar with an encapsulated track... $20,975. We are located in Eastern PA. Is this price reasonable? I was expecting a price in the 10k range, so this blew me away.

    Markets will vary I'm sure. My coverstar was 11,500 with the pool build (16x34, with the track underneath the deck - I assume that's "encapsulated")

    Basic manual switch, no wifi, sensors, or other extras.

    I had to find my own electrical - can't really break that one out for you as he did the wiring for the whole build.

    I am currently waiting (2 weeks and counting) on a replacement cover, though - it caught and ripped while opening after a couple of days, and now it opens crooked. PB is covering it so I assume something was installed wrong...

    That's a reasonable price.

    I'm not sure where that builder gets his Coverstar covers. Another builder just quoted me $9800 for a PCS cover. Why such a large discrepancy?

    Mine was above ground track coverstar (as pool is not rectangular) with cover itself in-ground, and was about 14,000. But prices can vary depending upon options selected.

    Re: Coverstar Auto Cover Pricing?

    Are you getting an aluminum mechanism or a stainless steel mechanism. There can be quite the difference in covers if you are not comparing apples to apples.

    Also are you getting poured lids or a aluminum lid for the cover trough. Are you doing some paver deck around the cover track. There are a lot of things that can effect cover pricing.

    Our Coverstar was $14,460 for 18 x 38 which is 17% smaller and over 3 years ago. Options do make a big difference. Ours is encapsulated and gunite with stone lid option and a wireless keypad (which failed after three years).
    Coverstar only has one mechanism option which makes that piece easier if he only uses them.
    $10K for an optioned up cover is way below market.
