3 Motor Options For Powering Your Automatic Pool Cover

September 17th, 2017 by

As autumn draws near, our minds turn to crisp air, football, bonfires, and pumpkin spice lattes. But fall is also the time when some of us have to deal with a particular nightmare. No, not Halloween. It’s all those leaves! The raking, the bagging, the burning, and, worst of all, the leaves floating in your pool.

Now is the time of year that you have an important decision to make: should you deal with the leaves the way you always have before, or should you add an automatic safety cover?

Buying an automatic pool cover is a big decision.  So how do you decide what the best product is and will it withstand the harsh environment your pool comes in contact with?

Similar to the engine in your car, Coverstar’s automatic cover system requires a reliable mechanism to run the show. Coverstar gives you the option to choose between three different motor options.

  1.               Standard electric motor option that delivers 1100 lbs of torque
  2.               Heavy-duty electrical motor that delivers 1600 lbs of torque
  3.               Hydraulic motor (that is recommend for large pool covers)

The type of motor depends on the size and shape of your pool.  But don’t feel like you need to make this decision on your own. Your local cover dealer will gladly advise.

A Coverstar automatic cover system also comes standard with features such as heavy-duty stainless steel bracket components that resist corrosion, and a 10 – 20 year warranty.
