2) Can the Pool Boy® systems be used on free form pools?
These systems will work on some free form pools; however, since there are different variations and shapes of free form pools this will depend on your particular application.
3) Does the cover come with the Pool Boy® systems?

You attach your cover the same way you would to a standard manual reel system.
5) Do the Pool Boy® systems come with any warranty?
Yes, there is a 1 year warranty based on the retail purchase of the system.

7) Do the Pool Boy® systems only uncover the pool?

8) How does the cover extend over the pool?
The motor does all the work for you by unwinding the cover from the reel. There is a tether kit that can be attached to the end of the cover so one person can easily guide it across the water. Please watch the demonstration video on our
to see the ease of operation.

The Pool Boy® systems come standard with a 40’ power cable that connects the transformer and the motor in the drive stand.
10) Do the Pool Boy® systems stands have to be secured to the deck?
The Pool Boy® systems do not need to be secured to the deck. They come standard with non-skid pads to help keep the stands in place. There are holes available if you choose to permanently mount the system to your deck. If you choose to do this, please check your local electrical codes to determine the necessary procedure for doing so.
