Replacing Cover Fabric
Automatic pool cover fabric will begin to show some signs of wear as a result of being exposed to environmental elements over time. On average, an automatic pool covers fabric will last 7 years depending on pool water and chemical buildup, sunlight exposure, and other environmental elements. If you have started to notice that your covers fabric is getting stiff, brittle, or cracked in some areas, it is time to replace the fabric! CoverSafe offers an exclusive replacement fabric incentive plan with the purchase of our Extended Service Plan. Contact us to find out pricing for your automatic pool cover’s fabric replacement.
Here are four ways to know your pool cover fabric may need to be replaced soon:
Look for signs of wear and aging
Chemicals, temperature variations and ultra violet light can break down the pool cover fabric over time. Look for cracks, peeling and weak spots on the cover where water may be seeping through the surface. When a cover becomes too stiff and brittle, there’s a good chance the fabric may need to be replaced.
Touch the cover fabric
Pool cover fabric should be pliable and supple. When a cover becomes too stiff and brittle, there’s a good chance the fabric may need to be replaced.
Inspect the webbing stitching
Traditional sewn webbing is a likely source of cover problems requiring pool maintenance. On standard pool covers, sewn threads can become frayed, cut or disintegrate over time, leading to cover failure.
Watch for bunching in the webbing
Covers with sewn webbing have a tendency to bunch up around the rope, which may cause the fabric to catch and tear on the fabric guides.

Building with separate slider channels eliminates binding and provides increased slider performance and reliability.
Having this option allows replacement of broken or worn rope while the cover is on, rather than having to send it to a factory for pool cover repair.
Painted Flat Aluminum Lid
A flush trim removes sharp edges and blends in with the pool surroundings. A hinged lid allows easy access to the cover mechanism.
