Basic Pool Covers

Basic swimming pool and spa covers are a fantastic option for homeowners that only need to cover their pool for a short period of time and are not looking for a seamless and elegant look. They range in many colors, water hues, cement and pavement shades. You can buy them to match the size of your pool approximately, or they can be custom cut to match the pool perfectly if you have a geometric or even kidney/figure 8 pool. They are not very expensive and they will last a few seasons before wear starts to set in and they don’t require much effort to apply. 


They do what they were designer for, keep out leaves and debris, and a good amount of dirt while the pool is not being used or it is simply to cold outside to enjoy swimming. 


Basic pool covers are not the top tier of items to compliment your pool however. They can look cheap after a few days with wrinkles, pockets of water on their surface and can look cheap.

Sliding Decks

Their edge blends with the horizon often or with the distant surrounds making a smooth and elegant mirage feeling. The infinity edge can be done in several different ways depending on the pool size, desired look you want and of course your budget.
