Manual On-Deck Track Automatic Pool Covers

Safety & Convenience...With the option to grow!

If you want to add an automatic pool cover or easy-to-use safety cover to your existing pool or to a freeform pool, the manual on-deck track automatic cover system is perfect for you. This system gives you the flexibility to order a width large enough to cover your entire freeform and installs on any deck material. Don't skimp on the safety an automatic cover offers, especially with the convenience of the on deck track automatic cover system. The Manual automatic cover is perfect for those people looking for an economical option to an easy to use safety cover, it even gives you the option to upgrade to a motorized, fully automatic cover at a later time, without the big upfront cost!


The manual system is designed for small to mid-sized pools and features a low-profile track mounted on the sides of the deck. The cover is retracted with a "hand crank" and extended over the pool by pulling a rope connected to a handle. The heavy duty vinyl cover is available in 7 different colors. This system is designed to be upgraded or converted to a semi-automatic or fully automatic pool cover system. If your pool size is not listed, please contact us for information about custom sizes. The track for this automatic cover will be 2" wider than the pool on each side and 1-1/2' longer on each end. If you have brick or stone coping, the track and cover must be made larger to accomodate this. Track width x track length equals cover square footage. The optional ladder hinges will allow you to flip up a standard deep end entry ladder. The ladder hinges are not needed for in-wall ladders.
