I have a Pool Saver automatic cover and the cover right now is a Coverstar. I am probably going to need to replace it next year.

I am also interested in good companies to go with for a replacement cover.

Anyone have recommendations?

Paper_Diva, I live near you (Elgin) I got a new (replacement) auto cover last year. I was very happy with the Company I used:
A-1 Midwest Enterprises, Inc. Belvidere, Il. 61008 (800)308-3720

Pool store quoted 3000.00 for a replacement cover and labor. I found
A duplicate cover and it is 1500.00 and I will have to do the labor. It doesn't seem hard, but I'm not sure!

Our cover was about $$3,400.00- for a 16x36' pool- that's was for replacing the viny-
I don't think I would attempt to do the installation myself-It's expensive but I think it's worth the peace of mind that comes with it.

My cost included a tune up of all the equipment-new rollers, oiled parts- it also covered them coming out to align the cover if it got off kilter. The cost of my first one covered a broken cord in the cover. Haven't had any problems with new one. I dont' think $3,400 was bad-my first cover lasted 10 years. Also, it helped the my insurace covered the cost-my liner ripped due to snow and ice overload. Had a huge snowstorm in 2010.
