The industry is seeing a growing number of professionals opting to concentrate specifically on the installation of automatic pool covers, which is leading more and more builders across Canada and the U.S. to outsource this business.
These days, automatic pool covers are being installed on everyday pools, especially vinyl-lined models. This emerging trend is facilitated by new automatic cover systems, which are being created specifically for package pools.
In designing/building this outdoor extension to their client’s home, Quality Property Services of Toronto created a resort-like experience that offers the sophistication of a holiday destination in the comfort of a residential backyard.
Cover Care LLC, a U.S.-based automatic pool cover installation and service company, celebrated the accomplishments of its elite technicians who had reached installation milestones at an awards ceremony held earlier this year.
Installing automatic pool covers is the specialty of Pool Patrol in British Columbia. The company sells as many as 100 auto-covers every year in Vancouver, Victoria, Okanagan, and Kelowna; therefore, it was no surprise when the installer was contacted about a new project—a 5-m (16-ft) wide by 29-m (95-ft) long pool in need of a cover.
High-end pools are no longer the only projects where one will find an automatic cover. In fact, these covers are quickly becoming the norm in many markets throughout Canada and the United States. With more homeowners frequently requesting them, industry professionals need to decide if they should train their staff on how to install and maintain them, or outsource the installation and maintenance to a specialized company.
