Winter protection is vital for any pool and Aquaflex’s winter debris covers offer the perfect solution to keeping leaves and other unwanted items out of the pool whilst shielding the pool water/liner etc, from what even in the winter can be damaging UV rays from the sun. Made from specially formulated, durable polypropylene, this tight mesh allows rainwater to pass through but keeps the pool water crystal clear. There are two types of debris cover available from Aquaflex; The Emperor and The Sovereign, both of which are supplied with a storage bag and a three year pro rata guarantee. All covers can be manufactured to accommodate ladders etc. intruding into the pool as well as step sections outside the pool. All varieties of shape and size can be supplied, with standard sizes generally available from stock. All rectangular covers are made 1′ 0″ (0.30m) larger than the pool all round (i.e. add 2′ 0″ (0.60m) to the width and length of the pool to calculate the cover size.
The Emperor is anchored using stainless steel, spring assisted “P” anchors and is also available with criss-cross reinforcing straps between all anchor points. Additional protection from abrasion is provided by the anti-chafing strips on all straps and large square reinforcing panels on all corners. The standard interval between straps is 4′ to 5′. Closer spacings (usually 3′) as well as continuous anti-chafing panels around the perimeter of the cover, are available as optional extras.
The Sovereign is anchored using rubber tensioners and “P” anchors. These tensioners are connected to the cover by eyelets spaced at 4′ to 5′ intervals around the perimeter. Each eyelet point is protected by an anti chaffing strip.
You can have either of the above options criss-crossed. Picture showing the underside of a cover.
For complete protection, coupled with low cost, the Aquaflex Easibag cover is the answer. It completely seals off the pool for the winter so that light is prevented from entering the pool and causing algae growth. Debris and water which build on top of the cover need to be removed in the spring before removing the cover. In order to make it easier to remove the cover in the spring, an optional mesh drain is supplied. If desired, the PVC covering the mesh can easily be cut away with scissors. Unless otherwise requested, all Easibag covers are made 2′ (0.61m) bigger all round than the pool. This means that the cover will be 4′ (1.22m) wider and longer than the pool itself.
