During the opening and closing operations of the system never lose sight of the entire water level of the pool. When carrying out the operations, you must ensure the absence of bathers.

It is imperative not to stop and leave the cover partly open as it could, if possible, foreign objects, obstruct the mechanism in any way and cause damage to the cover.

 

Maintenance / Winter

It is necessary to thoroughly clean the cover twice a year at opening and winter, which is even more important if the water is limestone, in which case a high pressure apparatus with hot water and an anti-scale product should be used. If the cover is surrounded by vegetation, it is advisable to place a net cover fixed to the edges, keeping the cover unwound.

Never leave the cover rolled in the pit for long periods, to avoid the risk of algae development or blotchiness on the blades and scale (situation not covered by the guarantee).

Even during autumn, to prevent leaves or other organic debris from falling on the blind, it is advisable to install a network cover. If there is no protection, all debris and objects that have fallen on the cover blades must be removed regularly.
