The driving force behind every Cover-Pools automatic pool cover system is our state-of-the-art motor, BigRed™. Our standard electric drive system has an advanced 3/4 horsepower, high-torque, waterproof motor made exclusively for Cover-Pools.
The slip clutch acts as a torque-limiting safety device to protect the cover and mechanism. Designed to last a lifetime, it uses industrial marine-grade brake material that eliminates plastic parts.
Like an electronic slip clutch, the amp limiter shuts the motor off when the pool cover is fully opened or closed. It also works with the accessory board to control water features.
Hydraulic Motor Option
Cover-Pools offers a powerful 1 1/2 horsepower hydraulic motor. Its sensitive pressure-release system offers adjustable power and a built-in automatic shutoff.
The Ultimate 3/4 Horsepower Upgrade
For large-sized pools, the Ultimate High-Torque motor provides 25% more torque and reduces the speed by 25% perfect for those jobs that need more power.
Designed to work with today’s mineral sanitizers, the mechanism components are anodized to prevent corrosion. It consists of stainless-steel hardware with anodized aluminum frame and brackets.
