The pool companies can supply them. Be prepared to pay around 1,200 for 8x4 pool cover fitted. It will save you on evaporation of water and cleaning though.

There were other threads on this a while back, someone brought their cover (I beleive it was a basic bubble wrap type cover) from the UK, they are not heavy, just a little bulky, I seem to recall they paid a little over 100, but obviously that is with no roller.

Another old thread on the board mentioned how someone uses their cover all the time when not in the pool and only tops up about 16tones of water in a whole summer.

I priced up a high spec cover, with fabric bonded to the bubbles, lines on the sides, floating tow kit and fitted roller ends in a UV protected material 500 micon, for 650, but how to get it out, the box for this one is 5m x 5m x 2m

Have a look at the following sites to get some info

http://www.poolwarehouse.co.uk

http://www.covers4pools.co.uk

http://www.poolstore.co.uk

http://www.evolutionpools.co.uk

http://www.1st-direct.com/swimmong-pool-covers-rollers.htm



Of these I found 'poolstore' tp provide the basic covers, but John Spencer at 'covers4pools' looks like supplying the best quality, and in emailing him I got informative and quick responses.



You could get a roller on wheels made locally for not too much I would imagine.



Please post how you get on, or if you find a local descent quality cover as we are definitely in the market for one too.

There is definitely a market for these things, depending on import costs etc, if only the prices stayed realistic. They are probably all made in China anyway, just need to get a boat to divert and drop a few off?

Cheers

We brought one back in the Spring from Cyprus heat Pumps. They were on offer then @ 275 for an 8x4m one in the bubble wrap type of material. They have a web site. If you are shipping goods grom the UK, it would be worth bringing one with you.

Hi sunnyday,

Did that price include any kind of roller to wind the cover back onto?

Any chance of a picture to my email please?

Be interested to see the cover etc.

Hi Brian,



Yes it does include the roller. I will email you a photo tonight. They have a web site http://www.cyprusheatpumps.com/SolarCovers.htm



As I said, they had an offer on when we brought ours, it shows 425 as the price now. Our pool is the warmest on our estate & it did help with evaporation in the summer. The only problem is keeping it down in the wind.

To keep it down in the wind buy several plastic parasol bases and half fill them with water, you can then float them on top of the cover to restrain it. It also helps if the water level is just under the height of the edge tiles thus discouraging the wind from getting underneath...
