You just had a pool enclosure installed over your pool and can’t wait to use it all winter long. The thought of swimming all year long or enjoying your morning paper beside the pool in the middle of winter is finally possible. The weather slowly gets cooler and the snow begins to fly. Little by little winter is finally here. You now are enjoying swimming in the middle of winter right in your own back year. A winter snow storm is forecasted the next day, but no worries you have a swimming pool enclosure.
the night the storm hits with high winds and 4” of heavy snow. It
is not a big storm just a typical snow storm you get a few times a
year, not even a big one. So when you look out at your pool
enclosure first thing in the morning you noticed you are looking at
your swimming pool not your swimming pool enclosure. The dome
roof of the retractable pool enclosure is half in the pool and
deck. The metal frame is twisted like a pretzel and panels and
components are all over the backyard and blown away to the neighbour’s
yard. This can’t be happening its brand new you have a warranty,
it supposed to be designed for winter? Now what do you do next.
unfortunately happens many times over the winter right across the
county. Some failed pool enclosure owners are luckier than others
they get a year or two out of their enclosure before it
collapses. Not all pool enclosures are made
equally. You may ask yourself why a company would
sell pool enclosure that would collapse; they seem like a nice company
and showed you a number of pictures of pool enclosures.
now you call the company up, if you have a bit of luck they may still
answer the phone, they inform you had to remove the snow from the pool
enclosure and must support it with poles and rods. Or
disassembly it and bring it indoors for high winds. You can’t
believe what you are hear. This does not make sense. What
company would sell a building and expect you to clear the snow off it
in the middle of the night or day and disassembly it during high
winds. Now you are beginning to wonder if this pool enclosure was
a good deal or a deal too good to be true. The company informs
you to read your warranty. Now you are worried since you
just told them what happened and they Don’t seem to care but tell you
to read your warranty. You put the phone down and dig out
You begin to read the warranty and it
sounds like a typical warranty but then you notice a few strange things
and think to yourself you should have read this before.
warranty states you must remove snow from the roof greater than 10 cm
or 2.5” and the winds can’t exceed 100km/hr. But you live in an
area that receives a lot more than 2.5” of snow and wind gust can reach
up to 60mph or more which is greater than what states in the
warranty. You phone the manufacturer back and they state your
warranty is invalid since you didn’t follow it. You are on your
own, now what do you do.
Don’t end up with a Collapsed Pool Enclosure, read your warranty and contact a pool enclosure company that designs pool enclosures for whatever Mother Nature throws at it.
