Ways Hydramatic saves you more!

Saves Lives
An Aquamatic cover acts as a horizontal fence, and it is “safety you can see”. The primary function of the automatic cover has always been to safeguard your children and pets from the pool and minimize the risks inherent with pool ownership. The ICC has recently recognized automatic covers as stand alone barriers. Additionally both the Hydramatic and the EZ-Cover exceed ASTM F1346-91 standards for safety and closure. As durable as these are, they are not intended as a toy and should only be walked on in an emergency. Of course there no substitute for adult supervision.

Saves Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy states that 75 % of heat loss is from evaporation, along with the evaporation, you will have water and chemical loss while incurring the cost of increased pump and filtration time of an uncovered pool. By utilizing an automatic pool cover you will eliminate your evaporative loss.

Saves Money
An automatic cover will reduce your pool operating costs by as much as 70 % through
reduction of water, chemical and energy consumption. Additionally your other pool equipment will work less and last longer. You will also realize a full return on your cover investment in a relatively short time.

*On indoor pools, the automatic cover will act as a vapor barrier, which allows you to reduce both the size and operating time of your dehumidification equipment saving you additional money. *

Saves Time
Spend less time skimming and more time swimming. A pool with a cover is always clean, warm and debris free. Which in turn, will allow you to have more time to enjoy your backyard oasis with your friends and family.

Saves Resources
The pool cover will act as a solar collector and will passively heat your pool through radiant transfer. Our customers have found on average their pool temperature has increased by as much as 10 to 15 degrees while also extending their swimming season.

Dual-Motor, all fluid Hydraulic Cover Drive System

The Hydramatic drive is a closed loop system, and although a drain is required in the cover recess, inadvertent flooding does not mean expensive electric motor replacement.

No electrics near the pool for greater safety. All electric power and switches are remote at the equipment pad which also means fewer problems with inspections.

Hydraulic drives are compact yet powerful, and can be easily controlled to provide only as much as is needed to operate the cover. Hydraulics are durable, and the most popular drive unit for wet and hostile environments and are the preferred choice of builders, designers and architects.

Hydraulics are widely used in heavy equipment for their durability and reliability. The unique patented Dual-Motor Hydramatic system eliminates mechanical linkage and clutches to start and then change direction of the cover. It has the least number of parts of any other automatic pool cover system, yet has a full range of safety and convenience features. Originally designed for commercial and other high use applications exclusive to Aquamatic.

The Hydramatic cover system has a patented built-in rainwater removal feature on most applications. When rainwater collects on the cover surface, simply turn the key to open the cover, and the water will be forced through the screens into the pool. The screen mesh will collect the leaves and most debris. A computerized cover pump is also provided with all cover systems exclusive to Aquamatic.

Cover Travel Limits
The cover is gently and reliably stopped at each end of travel by our patented pressure relief valves, eliminating the need of electronic sensors or other electrical devices near the pool.

The Hydramatic cover is UL tested and certified to exceed ASTM F1346-91 standards for pool safety.

The cover system comes with a limited 20 year warranty on the mechanism, a limited 7 year warranty on the covers and a limited 10 year warranty on the polymer panels. For additional information, contact your Aquamatic representative.
