NEW PowerFlex™ Rope!

PowerFlex rope is the next generation in autocover rope technology.  As a result of a proprietary treatment process, PowerFlex rope behaves like a shock absorber that allows it to be more forgiving and self adjusting during operation. It also resists distortion that is common with autocover ropes making it easier to install and operate with fewer adjustments.  The new PowerFlex ropes are black which allow them to blend into the background and a special coating adds lubricity to minimize friction along the track.

DiY Network premiered a new show on January 9th called Dream House Log Cabin that followed the newlyweds Fred and Natasha Ruckel as they built their dream log cabin in New York’s Catskill Mountains. Fred and Natasha having living in a cramped apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side and they have decided to turn their dream into a reality. But construction problems and an ambitious schedule threaten the construction of their dream house.

During the Defining The Dream episode that aired on April 26th, some fearless four legged friends ruin Natasha and Fred’s first chance at serenity. As the fire trucks roll up the driveway, one has to wonder if this is a dream or a nightmare. A spa, a landslide, and a flood all stand in the way of getting their dream off the ground. Not to be derailed, Fred and Natasha push ahead, only to encounter more delays that leave them out in the cold.

With all the problems that they had been facing, Adam Marble and the Coverstar East Coast team install a Coverstar recessed top guide automatic pool cover without any issues. The recessed topguide system was a great choice to cover their free form Viking fiberglass pool.

Pool Chemicals

Proper pool chemical levels are essential to maintain healthy water. But, if you don’t have a pool cover they need to be replaced and balanced frequently in pools. That’s a lot of extra money that you don’t have to spend. You can save up to 70% on pool chemicals! It’s easy! A cover keeps pool chemicals from dissipating so quickly, and that helps keep them in balance longer. Like a house without a roof, a pool without a cover is impossible to hear cost effectively. Without a cover, pool owners much continually replace heat and chemicals lost to simple water evaporation. And because the water is exposed to elements, pool filtration pumps use more electricity than necessary. That wastes valuable resources needlessly, and can cost you a lot of money. What that means to you is much less expense and effort in keeping the water ready for swimming. Less effort equals more swimming in your pool!
