Automatic Pool Covers
Automatic Pool Covers is pleased to offer an exclusive caviar black pool cover pump with a 40-foot power cord, 15 feet longer than others on the market, allowing for significantly more coverage area. It removes water from pool covers and other applications often without the need for an extension cord and waterproof connector. Without a pump, standing water on a pool cover is a risk and can damage the cover. The APCP-1700-40 pump eliminates risks associated with using extension cords around the pool. This pump is also easy to maintain, has a convenient handle and the black color draws solar heat in colder climates to help melt snow.

Thursday Pools is pleased to announce another innovative construction feature option for its fiberglass pools. The patented Geo-Anchor Pool Wall was created to prevent the fiberglass pool’s wall from moving or bulging. This is accomplished with a specially formulated geo-textile material that is infused into the pool wall during manufacturing, then rolled up, secured for delivery and unrolled during the pool’s installation. This geo-texture material is then rolled out into the backfill, anchoring the pool into the earth. The extension of this material allows the backfill to grip the pool wall to the earth. By anchoring the walls of the fiberglass pool, they will resist movement or bulge providing a strong, solid investment.
