This sleek vanishing edge pool is a work of art strategically aligned through a forest of protected oak trees in Northern California – preserving the environment in many ways.
The environmental protection plan continued with water and energy conservation at the depths of this beautiful design – literally. At the deepest part of this pool is a vault that conceals a 1/2″ thick floating-slat cover that, when deployed, stops evaporation and retains heat at night.
During the day the cover heats the pool like a giant blanket, increasing the water temperature without the use of fossil fuels – preserving the environment at a distance.
The Aquamatic HydraLux cover requires no tracks at the waterline, no track at the vanishing edge, and no hard-to-hide lead-bar typical of vinyl safety covers. As the HydraLux name implies, these covers are a premium luxurious addition to a pool and/or spa but the long-term water and energy savings will pay for it in time.
Another benefit of a floating slat-cover is the ability to cover shapes other than rectangles which is a primary limitation of typical vinyl automatic safety covers.
