How do I replace my bungee-style cover with a safety cover?

When a dealer replaces any existing safety cover, they want to match as many anchors as possible. This will minimize the number of new holes they have to drill into the deck. Please check out our effortless anchor matching service at MatchMyAnchors.com.

It is, however, much more challenging to match your anchors when replacing a bungee-style cover. These non-safety covers were designed to drape down onto the pool’s water for support. For this reason, they are larger than a safety cover will be for the same pool.

 

Bungee-style cover

 

This means we cannot use the bungee cover as a template to make a replacement safety cover so your dealer is are going to have to measure anyway. The question is, how do they measure to hit as many anchors as possible? The answer is different for rectangle pools than it is for custom shape pools.

 

For Rectangles there are two possible solutions:

1- To match most of the existing anchors we can produce a custom cover on 4’ spacing. Your dealer just provides the pool size, the distance between the anchors and the distance from the pool to the anchor  line and we do the rest. The only negative is your dealer will have to measure the anchors and you will pay the price of a custom cover, which will cost you about 50% more than the same size stock cover.

2-  If you would like to save the  cost of a custom cover you can just order a stock cover and take your chances. The 8 corner straps are going to match anyway.  Your new stock cover only needs anchors every five feet or so and the existing bungee anchors are spaced every two feet anyway. This means you have lots of existing anchors to choose from.  We should be able to match at least half of the anchors on the remaining sides. Your dealer will have to drill new holes for new anchors in the remaining locations but you will enjoy a nice price savings.

 

For Custom Shapes the decision is a little easier:

The custom cover will cost the same whether we attempt to match the anchors or not so we might as well try. If A-B’s are being taken for the pool anyway, your dealer will A-B the anchor heads too and we will design the new safety cover to hit as many anchors as possible. We will not hit every anchor because the existing anchors were not designed on a grid where you have one anchor opposite every other anchor like you have on a safety cover. Instead, on the original bungee cover they just started at some point and sewed straps on every two feet around the perimeter. If there is an anchor in the deck opposite one on the other side, it’s just by chance, not by design. Drilling some new anchors will always be necessary.

McEwen Industries turns 25 today! pt 2

As McEwen Industries turns 25 today, let’s look back at our blog post from this past February showing a fun list of things that have always been the norm for people that were born in 1991 –

  • They have never used a card catalogue to find a book.
  • The Green Giant has always been Shrek, and not a big green guy picking vegetables.
  • State abbreviations in addresses have never had periods.
  • They have always been able to read books on an electronic screen.
  • Cable television stations have always offered telephone service and vice versa.
  • Babies have always had a social security number.
  • There have always been flat screen televisions.
  • There has always been a blue Jell-O.
  • There has always been a computer in the Oval Office.
  • Salsa has always outsold ketchup.

McEwen Industries turns 25 today!

As McEwen Industries celebrates our 25th anniversary today, let’s look back at our blog post from this past January that highlighted the major events in 1991.

George H.W. Bush and Dan Quayle were the President and Vice-President. A first class stamp had just gone up from 25 cents to 29 cents. “Dances with Wolves” won the award for film of the year and Natalie Cole won song of the year for her duet of a recording with her father, Nat King Cole, of “Unforgettable”. The NY Giants defeated the Buffalo Bills in Superbowl XXV and the Minnesota Twins defeated the Atlanta Braves in the World Series. Duke won over Kansas in the NCAA basketball tournament. Next to “60 Minutes”, the two most popular TV shows were “Rosanne” and “Murphy Brown”. In 1991, we said goodbye to Miles Davis and Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) and saw the birth of the “World Wide Web” which would forever change the world.

What do you remember from 1991?
