The disadvantages of the above-ground pool cover

- As it is not delivered assembled, you must take care of its installation. However, manufacturers now offer kits that are easy to use. You can also arrange for installation by a professional.
- Not all pool shapes are compatible with the installation of an above-ground pool cover.

2 The different types of above-ground pool cover

The first criterion for choosing your above-ground pool cover is its mode of operation.

1 Manual
The manual roller shutter is the most economical and the easiest to install. It unfolds and folds by operating its control wheel. This type of shutter has the advantage of being able to be motorized later, which allows you to sequence your investments.


2 Electric
Le volet électrique est doté d’un moteur qui vous évite les manipulations. Il est équipé d’une fin de course électronique pour stopper automatiquement son déploiement. En cas de coupure de courant, le volet peut être débrayé pour que vous puissiez toujours utiliser votre piscine.


3 Solar
The automatic solar swimming pool shutter is the renewable energy version of the electric shutter. In addition to saving energy, its installation is simpler, because you do not have to pull a cable to your pool. It is rechargeable, thanks to its 24-volt auxiliary waterproof battery charger.

4 Mobile
The mobile swimming pool roller shutter is mounted on rails, which makes it retractable. It thus adapts to rounded shapes and with cut sides. Once folded, you move the roller and its support back, which frees up circulation around your pelvis.

3 What shapes of swimming pools for roller shutters

The roller shutter adapts to many shapes of swimming pools:

- square;
- rectangular;
- in L;
- with one end opposite the axis of the shutter rounded, with cut sides or with a projection for example for stairs (trapezoid, rounded or with right angles);
- if your swimming pool has rounded edges or cut sides on both sides, or is oval, it is often possible to adapt a mobile roller shutter.

4 How to take measurements of a shutter?

When you order your swimming pool roller shutter, you must enter its precise measurements on your order form. They must be taken between the walls of the pool and at water level.

1.Width between the legs of the shutter support will be pelvis width + 14 cm.

2.Pool dimensions = measured every meter at water level from the reel.

3.Angles = sharp (right angles), or rounded by specifying the radius in centimeters, or with broken edges by specifying the length (X) and width (Y) trimmed on each angle and the dimension (Z) of the pan (see diagram).

4.Specify the cut in shape or square, particularly in the presence of a staircase or if the corners are not sharp. Shaped cuts are more expensive.

5.Position of skimmers: for each skimmer, you must specify its position directly above the covering or protruding (in cm); indicate their position on the pool plan; if they are on the width, specify their position in relation to the reel. If your pool is not equipped with skimmers, specify what your filtration system is by attaching a plan of your pool.

6.In case of overflow, indicate its location in relation to the reel. (optional rods must be ordered)

7.Stairs: constant radius novels, straight or trapezoidal, specify all dimensions as for the corners of the swimming pool. For special cases, attach the pool plan.

5 How to mount your electric above-ground shutter

1 Preparing the pool

For an electric shutter, you must start by installing a conduit between the technical room and the pool to supply the roller. It should emerge from the ground 14cm from the edge of the pool. To fix the reel, provide two blocks: L100 x H20 x L30 cm, in concrete dosed at 350 kg/m3.

2 Cutting the copings Cut out the coping to clear the way for the cover. Allow a dimension of 11 x 23 cm for curved copings. For protruding copings, refer to the table below.

3 Cable routing

Remove the reel cover and remove the electronic card protection plate. Place the block above the duct connected to the sector. Cut the section of the sheath to fit the reel structure.

4 Positioning and fixing the axis

Assemble the reel axle with the side parts of the reel (motor side and bearing side). The roller must be positioned perpendicular to the length of the pelvis. Adjust it by measuring the diagonals. Then attach the side bases of the reel.

5 Positioning the blades and clipping

The blades descend from the front of the winding shaft. If your skimmers are positioned along the length of the pool, it is recommended to install 2 mm thick stainless steel skimmer flanges to prevent the blades from blocking.

Clip the blades. A click confirms that the hook is effective.

The straps are attached when adjusting the limit switches. Check that the passage of the blades is free over the entire length of the pool. To comply with standard NF P90-308, the cumulative clearance must remain less than 7 cm.

6 Installation of flanges

The installation of the safety flanges is carried out on the wall or on the base. You may have to groove the coping.

7 The interview

Carry out scrupulous maintenance to increase the longevity of your swimming pool roller shutter.

- Regularly check that the slats are properly hooked together.
- The safety straps and straps must be checked each time they are used.
- The straps fixing to the reel axle must always be correctly clamped and equally distributed.
- The ends of the blades must remain aligned to avoid jamming.
- No caps or fins should be missing.
- You must ensure water quality in all seasons. During the season of use, open the above-ground pool cover for at least two hours a day to ventilate your body of water.
- Fold the flap when subjecting your water to treatment.
- Keep the shutter cover clean using a degreasing product, but never aggressive. Do not use an abrasive sponge. Scale the joints between the blades if necessary to maintain their mobility.

8 Wintering

-  Clean your shutter scrupulously before wintering.
- Check the water level.
- Close the cover and lock the safety straps.
- Block the control device (key, remote control, application, etc.).
