    An alternative pool cover - has anybody done this?

    http://moana-pool.ch/gallery/begehbare% ... ckung.html

    A wooden deck that can slide over and cover the pool. I'm wondering what the pros and cons would be to this. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Typically the German's are excellent engineers so the product is probably top notch with a price tag to match. You could also get this one...http://hydrofloors.be/. Probably by some German's who moved to Belgium.

    Dang! I wish I would have thought about the rolling deck thing...that's pretty cool...Alas I don't have enough room now.

    I am anxious to see if anyone on the forum has one of these...

    Best,

    Bmoreswim - the Belgium one is interesting, that ought to cost a few bucks!

    I'm wondering if this is something that could be done in general (I did email the company to see what they do in the US) by a contractor during the build.

    It would solve a lot of potential issues for us - it could function as a lid to keep the heat in, a cover to keep animals and kids out, makes usable space on top of the pool out of season, and my new concern about pool vandalism. If they don't know a pool is there, then I won't have to worry so much about strangers in/messing with the pool.
