Winter pool covers in the Northeast- Help

martakeithSeptember 12, 2011

The pool service company that did our start up has given us a quote for a winter cover that includes installation and closing the pool for the winter. It is $4600 for a meycolite. Our pool is roughly 95 feet perimeter with a raised (1 foot) spa and some natural stone coping along one side. I'd love to know if this is a reasonable quote and what everyone else (in northern climates) is using. The service company only uses meyco products. That said, if we have to, I'm sure I can contract with another company to do the cover. Thanks in advance for your thoughts! Marta

That sounds about what our quote for our Mayco cover + install cost (although we ended up getting it done for free, to make up for some work in the contract that we ended up not doing).

A $4600 quote seems to me to be quite high even with some extra padding, perhaps pavers, and the pillows for either side of the the spa.

I suggest checking with Merlin and Loop Loc dealers in your area also.
