If you’re ordering a new cover but not sure on the corner radii then please follow these instructions to measure it accurately;

MEASURING A ROUNDED CORNER


Method 1:
Some pools have a rounded corner. To measure the radius of these curves extend two imaginary lines to meet at a point from the start of the curve. The length of this imaginary line (red line) represents the radius of the curve. The lines start where the cover begins to curve, and ends where they cross.

Method 2:
If you have an old cover, put the cover on the top of a newspaper and align the two edges of the cover with the edge of newspaper. The distance from the corner of the newspaper, to where the cover completely covers the paper is the radius of the corner.

Note: Measure all radius corners. Make sure that all the radii are equal. A slight difference in each radius will cause a fitting inconsistency.

Method 3:

Trace the existing cover or the internals then scan & send to us. Alternatively cut a piece of thick card to match the exact shape & send it in. This method will add 7-10 days whilst we wait for your ‘pattern’ part & then translate it for the factory.
