I have a 18x36 free-form pool with a INFINITY 4000 on it supplied by PCS and have never had these problems with the ropes. I have had the pool for 20 years and have only had to replace the cover 3 times, but never had to replace the ropes. They are a great company to work with and are very knowledgable when comes to pool covers.

I've heard horror stories from others about pool installation as many people who work in this industry are over priced morons after our money. Given this, it doesnâ€™t surprise me that there are horror stories about Coverstar pool covers.
If we get a pool, then I want a pool cover rather than a fence. However, I know these things are maintenance nightmares. What Iâ€™m trying to figure out is if Coverstar is really any worse than other pool covers. They advertise about how special their ropes are so it doesnâ€™t surprise me that they cost a bunch to replace. It also doesnâ€™t surprise me that there are a bunch of monkeys out there that do it wrong the first time then charge an arm and a leg to fix it.
If you guys had to do it again, would you get a different pool cover, a different contractor or no pool cover at all?
