I have been enjoying my elegant retractable pool enclosure for about 3 months. It is fantastic! All of my neighbors are very impressed by it. They say that they have never seen anything like it. I would not have gotten a pool unless I was able to have an enclosure. That's how important it was to me. The enclosure drastically reduces the amount of time and energy needed to clean the pool and reduces the need to add pool chemicals. Before I got the enclosure, so much debris got into the pool to the point of clogging my 2 filters. It was a chore cleaning and vacuuming the filters and the bottom of the pool. I knew that this would change once the enclosure was in place. When the enclosure is kept closed, all vacuuming and cleaning of filters is eliminated. The only time I need to vacuum or clean filters is when I have the enclosure open, or partially retracted. Even then, in comparison from the beginning, there is hardly anything that needs to be done, in terms of cleaning. I am thankful for all that I have been blessed with, and attribute a lot of the success to Alex, of Pool and Spa Enclosures. He was terrific from the beginning to the end. I strongly urge anyone considering a pool enclosure to contact him first. He will give you the best deal and best price. Trust me, I checked.
