Autocover Maintenance and Repair

Regular autocover maintenance is recommended for optimal autocover performance. Maintaining your autocover will ensure that the autocover system runs efficiently and is reliable. Dirt and debris can build up in the autocover tracks or in the autocover housing causing uneven opening and closing. Keeping your system clean is necessary to prolong the life of the autocover and it's 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. Autocover maintenance should be done annually, typically in the spring when opening the swimming pool.
