I just got my first quote to put 116' of aluminum pool fence around half my pool to separate it from the backyard for our two small kids and dog. $5000! I have a second quote coming on Saturday. On top of that, this fall I need to spend who-knows-how-much on a custom safety cover for my 45x15 pool. What if I just got a automatic-powered cover for it to keep everything out of the water when I'm not using it? I'm not sure how it would cover the stairs and seating cut-out though. Ideas?
