Does the $100 include return shipping of your old cover also if I am not satisfied with the replacement price?

A  Answered on 9/6/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Robert. Yes the $100 will include the cost of the box sent to you and if you do decide not to proceed with a repair or a replacement it will cover the shipping of your old cover back to you. If you do choose to repair or replace the cover we take the $100 off the price of the quote.

When capping an entire square can you give an estimated price for that repair on a full vinyl cover not mesh?

A  Answered on 3/13/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Michelle B.

Hello, We do not know the condition of the cover, so you would need to mail in the entire cover for a quote.

I have a mesh cover that is in need of repair or replacement. If it needs to be replaced can you duplicate the original so we can utilize the existing anchor points in our concrete? We can send you our old cover. Our pool is roughly 35x17 feet. The anchor points down the length is 3.0 feet and the anchor points in the width are every 3ft 6 inches. Based on the picture attached can you quote me a replacement cover. Any rough idea on costs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Suzanne

Yes, we can do either. Please click here to begin our cover doctor procedure and also here is the cover doctor form that will be needed before we send you the box for the cover.
