  • 90% reduction in water evaporation
  • 70% reduction in pool heating costs
  • 50% reduction in electricity costs
  • 70% reduction in chemical use

Depending on where you live, your automatic pool cover can save you hundreds of dollars on utilities and maintenance costs each year.

Are Automatic Safety Pool Covers Safe?

Automatic pool covers may be the safest pool cover option available for installation in today’s growing marketplace. Also known as “horizontal fences,” the protection provided by electric pool covers is virtually unparalleled.

Plus, they’re fast. All you have to do is flip a switch or press a button to roll out a protective barrier over your pool that no child, pet, or overindulgent house guest can fall into. And with WiFi-based remote options, you can receive a text message or email alert to let you know when your cover is activated or left open too long.

How Does an Automatic Pool Cover Work?

Automatic safety covers work with the help of a few key elements, specifically tracks and a small, efficient motor. Typically, on one end of the pool, there will be a sleek “roller” where the pool cover material rolls up and is stored when not in use. When the switch is activated, the motor turns on and the pool cover automatically rolls across the pool area with the help of two tracks on either side of the pool. These tracks can be built inside the lip of the pool for a seamless design, or lay on either side of the pool, above ground.

Electric pool covers require professional installation, a licensed electrician should run all wires and make connections to the breaker box.

While most manufacturers only sew the webbing material to the cover, at Latham we offer both a sewn and a heat sealed process. This exclusive patented heat seal process ensures that the webbing is twice as strong and therefore will not fail over time like it will with other manufacturers. Independent lab tests show that our method is over twice as strong as competitive webbing sewn to a cover!


The motor’s hardened stainless steel shaft and oil bathed gears eliminate motor problems. It is sealed against water by the original motor manufacturer. The motor can operate even when completely submersed if the housing is temporarily flooded. Other less reliable means of water protection could mean an expensive motor repair.


Ultra strong stainless steel bracket components make Coverstar the most durable and reliable automatic safety cover on the market. Nothing stands up better in the harsh corrosive pool environment.


A mechanical torque limiter protects the motorized mechanism from too much stress. Other automatic covers often use an electronic torque limiter that can fail in the harsh pool environment.


PowerFlex rope behaves like a shock absorber that allows it to be more forgiving and self-adjusting during operation. It also resists distortion that is common with Autocover ropes makes it easier to install and operate with fewer adjustments.


High quality rope pulleys are crucial to overall cover system performance. That’s why we use special custom designed and field tested rope pulleys that provide maximum reliability in the pool environment.


The Coverstar WiFi touchpad connects to your existing home network. It is easy to set up and will allow you to choose which notifications you want to receive such as:

  • When the cover is closed
  • When a user code is entered
  • When an unauthorized user attempts to log in
  • When the cover is left open and more

In addition, the Coverstar touchpad allows you to program up to 4 unique user codes, so different members of the family can have their own code.

Under track systems are embedded in the pool wall or mounted to the bottom side of rectangular pools’ coping, allowing track to remain virtually unnoticed. For a more integrated look, track can be built directly into the pool wall using track encapsulation.

Top track systems can be used with most freeform pools. The cover’s drive system is installed under an aluminum lid or mounted to the surface of the deck.

Recessed track systems feature aluminum track that are recessed in the pool deck during the construction of the pool. The recessed track is flush with the top of the deck.
