optional features available, depending on the product chosen. All of the in-ground pool covers mentioned can be retro-fitted, apart from Rollin/RollKit. Similarly, MOON and DUNE can be installed during or after construction. Their domed disk design gives an immediate impression of the underlying technological innovation. That includes advanced tubular motors, fully adjustable automatic stops, three-position key switch to prevent accidental manipulation, and an optional automatic switch which immediately stops all movement on detecting abnormal cover strain.


The Aquamatic cover is driven by hydraulic fluid not electricity. On the surface, many covers look similar but the most important part of any pool cover is the drive mechanism. In choosing Aquamatic you have chosen the unique patented hydraulic fluid drive system that offers trouble free maintenance, increased power performance and is designed to last a lifetime. Aquamatic is versatile, enabling it to be housed either above or below ground with a combination of three different types of track; flush, surface and in-wall track. Combined with a cover pump it is the only cover to have a built in rainwater removal system. An ingenious trouble free patent slider system together with a compensator ensures that the cover closes square every time.

No electrics are required near the pool. The

power-pack (an electrically driven hydraulic pump) can be placed in a remote area up to 100 feet away.

Aquamatic will turn the pool into a large passive solar collector that will raise the water temperature six to ten degrees on average and reduce chemical requirement by up to 50% and water loss through evaporation up to 95%.

Pressure relief valves ensure that the cover stops on meeting an obstruction when closing the pool. Six different colour fabrics are available from stock at no extra charge. Aquamatic is one of the quickest operational covers on the market with over 20,000 sold and a 20 year limited warranty on the drive mechanism.
