Our PB insisted we have a template made to layout our freeform pool, preconstruction. Said it would be around $150. We were surprised when it came in at over $500 , made of what looks like a heavy mesh cover with heavy bound edges. PB reassured us at close time we could have extra fabric and straps attached to this and thus convert it to a safety cover. Now the manufacturer ( Latham) says no way. So that was a waste of $500.
They want $3500+ for a mesh cover, plus installation from PB. We want to shop around. How do we measure for a safety cover? Asymmetrical "dog bone" shaped vinyl liner pool. 49' long x 32' - 19'- 24' widths plus steps and swimouts. I hate to trash the nice mesh "template" that was only used to layout pool placement pre-construction and then put away 2 days later.
Due to the large size a mesh cover has been recommended.
Thanks for insights.
