Auto-Cover Maintenance and Repair
Regular auto-cover maintenance is recommended for optimal auto-cover performance. Maintaining your auto-cover will ensure that the auto-cover system runs efficiently and is reliable. Dirt and debris can build up in the auto-cover tracks or in the auto-cover housing causing uneven opening and closing. Keeping your system clean is necessary to prolong the life of the auto-cover and its vital parts such as ropes and sliders. Just like brake pads on a car, pulleys, sliders, and ropes will wear over time. Inspecting and replacing worn parts will prevent future problems. Auto-cover maintenance should be done annually, typically in the spring when opening the swimming pool.
