Atlantic City Pool & Spa Show

Jan. 29-31st the Northeast Pool and Spa Show was held in Atlantic City NJ.
During these three days of trade show, Coverstar joined our friends from Coverstar East Coast and Coverstar Central in sharing many of the features that set the Coverstar automatic cover system apart from our competitors. Some of the features highlighted include:

  • Ipad App – The app provides compelling information about both automatic and solid and mesh safety covers. It also includes a cost savings calculator that shows the potential annual savings in operating a pool with an automatic cover and photo galleries.
  • Touch Pad Control Switch – The new touch pad can have 4 unique user pass codes programmed in to it. It will also learn the amount of torque that is required to operate each cover. The amp current limits can then be adjusted to allow the cover motor to automatically turn off if a problem is detected during the operating of the cover.
  • Heat Sealed Webbing – This webbing is much stronger and longer lasting then standard sewn on webbing,
  • Eclipse Stainless Steel and CS3000 Aluminum Mechanisms – These mechanisms were engineered to provide strength in the harsh pool environment, as well as easy and reliable operation for years to come. 
  • PowerFlex Rope - The powerflex rope is easier to install and is more forgiving during operation of the cover system.  In addtion to this, it comes with a 2 year no-break warranty.
