We just had the Infinity 4000 automatic pool cover installed with the intent of building our own bench to cover the large rolled cover. The benches sold by most of the pool cover companies are often vinyl, expensive and incredibly ugly! Right now we have a large overturned Rubbermaid storage box over the mechanism until we figure the bench out.
One carpenter gave us a quote of $1400 and that was in pine?! I'm hoping we can do better than that, and not in pine.
Has anyone constructed their own bench? Any input, ideas, suggestions and pictures welcome!
