WHY WORK FOR COVER-POOLS? Cover-Pools is the world’s leading manufacturer of automatic safety pool covers. In 1959 the founder of Cover-Pools invented the automatic pool cover—a cover that could be used daily and offer safety, maintenance, and heat-saving benefits to all swimming pool owners. We’re proud to say we invented the automatic pool cover and patented it in 1962. Since then, we’ve been designing custom covers that protect families and their pools.
