Cover Duplication Process2018-02-17T19:59:36+00:00

If your cover is deemed not repairable then you should consider using our Duplication process. We can take your swimming pool safety cover and make a duplicate of it, so that your deck anchors line up and you do not need to do a new install of the cover.

HOW IT WORKS

Step 1 – We ship you a box

Step 2 – You remove the springs from your cover, roll it up, and put it in the box.

Step 3 – UPS or Fedex will come to your home to pick up the cover and deliver it DIRECTLY to the manufacture.

Step 4 – They will measure and finalize the quote to duplicate.

Step 5 – You Order / Pay for the cover online via a credit card.

Step 6 – They will remake and ship your new cover right to your door.

Easy as pie!

How long does it take to repair or replace my cover?2018-02-17T19:41:27+00:00

Depending on the time of year a typical repair could take 3 – 4 weeks, so don’t wait until August to send it in.

If you are going to get a cover Duplicated it can also take 3 – 4 weeks.

The cover manufacture’s schedule is very seasonal, as you get closer to September / October their lead times and prices increase.

Can I order a new cover from Unique Pool Covers?2018-02-17T19:38:54+00:00

YES! Even if you do not have an existing swimming pool cover we can help you purchase a new cover, give us a call.

What is the average cost of a repair?2018-02-17T19:37:20+00:00

If you have between 2 and 4 panels that have damage the average cost is between $500 – $600, and this includes shipping.  If you have more than 4 panels or a lot of small holes in the cover you should call for a quote.

What if my cover is not repairable?2018-02-17T19:37:08+00:00

If your cover is beyond repair or the cost to repair is just not a smart decision, then we suggest that you get a Duplicate Cover made.  Here is how that works.  We ship your cover to the manufacturer, they copy the exact design and layout of your existing cover and send you a brand new version of your old cover.  This means that you do not need to do any new installation of the deck anchors!  You also do not need a local pool company to help out, saving you money!

Can my swimming pool cover be repaired?2018-02-17T19:53:37+00:00

Typically if the cover is less than 7yr old we can make a repair.  The problem with covers that are older than 7 years is that they start to get what is called Thread Rot.  This is where the threading that is holding the cover together is starting to breakdown all over.  These covers are sold as SAFETY covers and must meet ASTM standards.  In order for us to make a repair they must leave the manufactures building meeting those same standards.  From our vast experience covers that are older than 7 years typically do not meet the standard anymore.  These covers usually fall into the category of needing to be replaced.  See cover duplication process.
