We are looking to purchase an automatic pool cover. Does anyone have suggestions regarding brand? I'm also curious how long they last and what the maintenance is like?
I use Coverstar on my pools have had no problems with them at all..I would suggest a yearly maintenance with Coverstar to adjust and lube the cover...Look to replace the cover in about 10 years...

We have signed with a PB, and are putting on an Automatic pool cover. Originally, they said they wanted to use Cover Pools. But after more research, they are saying Coverstar seems like a better product. I found another board with bad reviews of Coverstar, especially mentioning the ropes multiple times. Can anyone here offer more updated information on Coverstar? These reviews were from 2009, so maybe the issue has been corrected.
Muddy-water -- how old is your Coverstar pool cover? I'm glad to hear that you have had no problems.

I have a cover star pool cover and it's been working fine. I got it installed OCT 2012. I think the issue you were concerned with is corrected.
Coverstar is a trusted name, one of the most trusted names for auto covers. You will find some negative reviews but it is worth considering that they also just install more covers than anyone else in my area by a fair margin. This might account for some of these negative reviews. I think they might even have a cable system now in place of the ropes but not 100% on that. It has been 2 years since I had an autocover installed from them.
