    Automatic Cover Options?

    Bought a house with this free form pool with a paver deck. The previous owner installed a pergola pretty close to the pool, eliminating a on-deck track option for a cover. Is there any type of solution for this? Am I also out of luck for a winter cover since the tension bolts would likely pull up the paver stone?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Automatic Cover Options?

    There isn't any way to install an electrically operated cover without removing the pergola.

    However, you can install a safety cover, though installing the anchors in a paver deck is quite a bit of extra work. Each anchor needs to be connected to a fairly substantial piece of concrete, but that concrete can be buried below the pavers. Unless the pavers were installed on a concrete base to begin with, setting that up pretty much means removing the pavers, pouring a lot concrete, reinstalling the pavers, and mounting the anchors in concrete filled pipes that anchor down in the concrete below.
