    Information about Covers with Diamond/Triangular Bubbles:

    diamond cover sampleThese cover styles' dry weights are approximately 46 pounds [20' X 40']. Through testing we have learned that this style of cover retains 30+/- lbs. of water when rolled up at a normal speed.

    The retained water weight and the cover weighs approximately 76 lbs. This is beyond the maximum design weight of 60 lbs. Covers for larger pools will require a Commercial Reel System to manage the excess weight.

    Rolling the cover up very slowly allows for better water drainage from the cover reducing the weight borne by the reel system. The total weight, with slow roll-up, should meet our design weight specifications.

    Product Manufacturer: Feherguard

    Note: All Rollers are non-cancelable and non-returnable.

    Note: All product performance tests and claims are that of the manufacturer, not The Energy Supermarket.
