About Pool Cover Specialists®
Pool Cover Specialists® is celebrating 30 years as one of the leading manufacturers of automatic swimming pool covers in the world!
Formed in 1984, Pool Cover Specialists® started as a pool cover maintenance company and manufacturer of upgraded replacement parts for various automatic-cover systems, and started manufacturing the earliest version of its own automatic cover system, the Solar 2000 in 1986.
In 1992, the company launched its first nationwide distribution campaign with the most-state-of-the-art system available, the INFINITY 4000™, which set a new standard for excellence and innovation in the automatic cover industry. Thanks to this low-maintenance, user friendly system, within a short time, the company soon dominated several automatic cover markets around the country.
Still considered to be “an engineering masterpiece in progress,” the company continues to refine the INFINITY 4000™, which now boasts the most powerful motor in the industry, the strongest pulleys, the most durable, “tested” fabric and rope, driver gears that continue to boast a zero-failure rate (and which carry a lifetime warranty). It also has the industry’s only electronic torque limiter (with bi-directional sensitivity), the industry’s only redundant (backup) autostop system, the industry’s strongest drive pin (not a shear pin!)..
In addition, the system includes the industry’s most extensive array of track options (11 in all) in addition to Total Package components designed to integrate installation of INFINITY 4000™ aesthetically into the substructures of every vinyl-liner kit pool on the market and most precast (fiberglass) pools
In 1997, the company shattered the status quo once again with the introduction of the world’s finest economical automatic cover system, the POWERTRAK™. This low-voltage system has a self-contained power source requiring no electrical preparation or expense, making it an ideal retro-fit system that can be installed more quickly than any other automatic cover.
The company now produces one of the largest lines of safety cover systems in the world: The INFINITY 4000™ electric and hydraulic fully automatic pool cover system, the POWERTRAK™ semi-automatic swimming pool cover line, which satisfied the existing-pool and mid range market segments, and the MANUALTRAK™, a manually-operated swimming pool cover system.
In the late 1990’s, the company began setting up a worldwide distribution network that now includes four warehouse distribution centers in the US, New Zealand and Europe, and the company has partnering with one of its European distributors to set up a manufacturing plant in Seville Spain, from which the company manufactures covers and ships systems to all of it’s European distributors.
Pool Cover Specialists® corporate headquarters is located in West Jordan, Utah. In 2002, the company revolutionized the industry again by opening a 40,000 sqft. “sister” facility in Indiana, making Pool Cover Specialists® the only automatic swimming pool cover manufacturer with bi-coastal manufacturing and distribution facilities (65,000 combined sq. ft.). Both facilities enable Pool Cover Specialists® to deliver its product and services in a timley manner anywhere in the world.
Pool Cover Specialists® holds 8 patents, several are licensed to the other major pool cover manufacturers, and several products that are presently patent pending.
In 2012 Pool Cover Specialists® stunned the pool cover world again when it patented and released a new industry changing “double-dog” which controls the drive components of a pool cover. Most of the industry uses the original double-dog technology which has been unchanged for over 60 years…but Pool Cover Specialists® was finally able to crack the code and manufacture what is now thought to be one of the greatest advancements in pool cover technology in 50 years.
In 2013 updated all of the equipment in its Indiana factory and added the largest fabric welder in the industry to accommodate pools up to 50 feet wide. This commitment to technology and constantly striving for a faster, better, easier and overall more efficient way to not only manufacture pool covers but also operate them has been the reason for dominance in the pool cover industry for all of its 30 years.
State-of-the-art manufacturing equipment combined with highly efficient manufacturing systems enable Pool Cover Specialists® to offer unprecedented services: Maximum 48-hour shipping window on standard systems and replacement fabrics, same-day fulfillment of standard parts orders, and 1 to 3 day shipping transit anywhere in the continental U.S. (thanks to the company’s bi-coastal shipping hubs).
