I am in the process of looking to buy my first solar cover for my inground pool.
How much significance should I give to the warranty?
Does it make a difference on who the manufacturer is or what website company I buy the cover from?
It seems like most of everyone’s solar covers no matter what color or thickness have had short life spans, but I assume most of them stated they had some type of warranties when you bought them.
I have been on a lot of websites in my process of looking for a new solar cover and it appears that depending on some type of factors such as thickness, color, etc., etc., the warranties are for a specified number of years and terms.
For example, some say they have a total number of years like 8 and then they also say 2 full. I would presume that during the 8 years of the coverage the amount they will pay for goes down each year, but it also gives the impression that during the first 2 full years they will pay 100%.
With seemingly everyone’s solar covers only lasting a couple of years, has anyone attempted to use the warranty that comes with their covers and has anyone received 100% credit during the supposed full year’s time frame?
If no, what not?
If yes, was it a big hassle?
Also did you have to deal with a manufacturer or the pool website company that you purchased the solar cover from?
Finally, what manufacturer or the pool website company have people had the best experience with?
