Pool Cover Services/UTAH wrote:hello everyone, My Business is Pool Cover Services/UTAH. I have been installing and servicing automatic pool covers for over 15 years, I have worked on every kind of pool cover out there. There is an answer to your problems. If your fortunate to live in Utah I can replace ropes on any cover for $65.00 per rope plus 1-2 hours labor. I would never buy from Coverstar. If you are outside of Utah, call Pool Specialists in Indiana, THey have very qualified techs. Rgardless of where you live Pool SPecialists will send you replacement rope kits that can easily be installed, the rope has been tested and I know first hand IT WORKS and will last for the life of the cover!!!

COVERSTAR pool cover

Postby no diving » Mon 12 Aug, 2013 21:20

We just had one of the nylon webbing straps break. Luckily, ropes are intact, but the track sliders are very worn, and when the strap broke, the cover torqued severely... which ruined the sliders. I unwound the tangled rope on the bad side, re-wound it on the spool, and re-threaded the rope into the track over the weekend; I machined new sliders out of UHMW plastic today, now just need to find a 3" wide piece of webbing, sew that on to rope and install my new sliders. But how do I re-adjust the ropes? Right now with the cover closed, the loose rope is about 10 - 12" too long. Did I miss one wrap around the spool? Or can I open the cover, pulling the loose rope as it goes (to unspool it), and re-adjust it then?

I live in Michigan and have had my Coverstar for about 8 years. It has taken quite a beating with all the ice and snow in the winter. There is a small tear in it now that I mean to patch. I have had to have the rope replaced about 4 years ago when it broke. Now I am trying to order a Torque Limiter and Housing Assembly. The torque limiter is worn out and the 4 screws in the assembly sheared off. Probably because it has been closing very rough ( locking and catching) for the past 2 years. I think that if I have many more problems, I will just keep it open and have a mesh winter cover installed to keep the leaves out. Then I won't have to pump it off all winter. I really like the Coverstar but like anything else it is a complicated system. When it closes rough, things tend to break.

Anyone have any recommendations for anyone in Indiana to fix these? UGGHHH... Had a rope break for the second time in 3 years...

CoverguyIndy (on this forum) came out 3 years ago and did an excellent job at an excellent price. Unfortunately his phone # and email contact information is no longer working.

Thanks!

COVERSTAR pool cover

Postby water-H2O » Thu 02 Jan, 2014 22:31

It looks like automatic pool covers maybe too much trouble with ropes and cables, etc. However, I came across a company that sells automatic pool covers without strings or ropes and uses no rails. It looks interesting and the cost is much lower than the standard automatic covers on the market like Coverstar. Also it comes with a thermal blanket that does not let light into the pool to prevent algae growth.
I think this is perfect for our planned oasis. It’s called an Auto Pool Reel from http://www.autopoolreel.com Does any know of a similar product on the market in the same price range to compare?

Autopoolreel looks like just a thermal cover, not a safety cover. If you step on it, you're going in.

My Pool: 45x25 infinity edge

Re: COVERSTAR pool cover

Postby srholt123 » Thu 25 Feb, 2016 22:36

We have had a coverstar on 25x 45 infinity edge pool for the last 4 years. And it has not worked for more than 90days in the 4 years. The ropes break, the guild pullies have bent upward on the far end. The wheel assembilly have bent. The last bill was over 1300 to fix. I had a mother contractor come out today from cover pool. He said the contractor should have never put a auto cover on a pool this size. Thank you Mike from carefree pools in San Luis Obispo. He is a rip off! If anyone may have a solution to thi problem please contact me:

We are having an issue with the brackets the Coverstar dealer used when installing the cover. These brackets support the stones that conceal the cover well. They are metal coated with Line-X. The Coverstar technician told me these do not hold up to wet conditions and they are disintegrating like dry leaves. To replace the brackets will be about $2,000. The dealer who installed the cover sold his business to another Coverstar dealer who is not able to help. (Well, unless I want to pay them $2,000 to replace the faulty brackets.) My understanding is these brackets were manufactured by Latham. Has anyone else encountered this problem or have a less expensive solution?
