    Experience with Vyn-All brand safety covers?

    Hi All,

    does anyone have any thoughts or comments on Vyn-All brand covers? i have a quote for my IG pool and it's reasonable, but wondered if any of you have any insight on the longevity, quality of it as a product.. is it good to go or should i get a loop-loc instead?

    many thanks!

    I have a 16x30 single kidney. My loop-loc was $2500 installed. The kidney shape is more expensive. The 3K installed is not out of line for the area (I'm in mass too). I would go with a loop-loc. Name brand, good product.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Am I doing your cover I deal with them directly and have for the past 10 years, too.

    I've installed a couple hundred of them and opened and closed > 300 pools, every year, with the Vyn-All covers - it's a good product (they also make the 'Cover- Logic' covers, as well as the liners we install)

    I STRONGLY! advise you to spend the extra couple hundred $ to get the 'Sunblock' weave - it'll pay for itself in the first 2 seasons of being able to open the pool crystal clear!

    If they have any issues with the covers, they effect the installer, not the pool owner. They have a little glitch in their layout program that 'messes up' grecian corners (nothing major, but the anchors end up being ~2" from where they ought be) and sometimes have a little trouble sending the right amount of springs and anchors - again, this is only an issue for the installer, and we always carry extras

    Please feel free to ask of me any questions you have about the Vyn-All cover.

    Hi Ted,

    thanks for your feedback. i've read lots of your posts here in the past. you're not my installer, someone in metro west boston is doing it. i am looking at the sunblock.
