Latham International, the largest manufacturer of in ground swimming pool components, has once again hosted the Pool Builder Academy. The pool builder academy was organized to give pool builders from around the country an opportunity to receive hands on experience and instruction as they participate in the entire process of building a vinyl liner pool. The academy begins with the excavation of the hole and concludes with the installation of a Coverstar Automatic Cover System.
When Latham International first introduced the Pool Builder Academy, it was held in the yard of a homeowner that had purchased a pool and agreed to have the academy at their home. A few years ago, Latham decided that the Pool Builder Academy provided the perfect opportunity to give back to the community. Now, Latham works to identify charitable organizations that would really benefit from having a pool.
This most recent academy was held April 10-14 in Sicklerville NJ. The recipient of the pool was a home called Wings of Steel. The homeowners, Chuck and Dorothy Beck, who raised two children of their own, are now the proud parents of 10 special needs children they have adopted. These children range from 20 months to 20 years of age. Some of the challenges that the children are faced with day to day are spina bifida, cerebral palsy, heart defects and spinal cord injuries. Despite these challenges, the Beck family is happy and excited for the water therapy their new pool will provide their children.
At the conclusion of the academy, the Beck family was absolutely thrilled with the pool and very appreciative that we, along with the other companies involved, donated the pool and cover system.
Coverstar LLC, is proud to have participated in 5 Pool Builder Academy’s. Each of these academy’s has given Coverstar the opportunity to give back to the community as well as meet many new pool builders and introduce them to our Coverstar Automatic Cover System.

Did you know that COVERSTAR systems use only cover fabric which is tested and certified to meet the American Standard for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard for safety pool covers! An advanced vinyl formulation and superior fabrication methods make it top of the line. No other automatic safety cover manufacturer offers so many exclusive features. When you want the maximum fabric life possible, COVERSTAR safety cover material is the right choice.
Gorgeous, isn’t it? For the COVERSTAR system to work with raised walls, an Underguide track can either be hung with anchors under a cantilevered edge or installed using our gunite encapsulation. In addition our adjustable torque limiter protects the motorized mechanism from too much stress. The disc brake design is reliable and easy to adjust if needed. Heavy-duty, stainless steel components allow the COVERSTAR Eclipse mechanism to endure harsh environments giving you many years of reliable service. All COVERSTAR automatic safety covers have superior engineering based on more than 35 years of field experience. System reliability, high quality components and compelling benefits make it the preferred choice of pool owners everywhere. Ultra strong components make the COVERSTAR the most durable and reliable automatic safety cover on the market. Be sure to contact us early in the design process to incorporate this fabulous feature!
Each year Coverstar manufactures and ships more new automatic cover systems than any other manufacturer. Additionally, Coverstar typically ships these large, complex, custom systems within 48 hours with better quality and fewer errors. Coverstar continually sets the industry standard for product features, quality, delivery and order accuracy in both of its world-class manufacturing facilities.
How was this accomplished? The secret to Coverstar’s manufacturing success lies in its people, its willingness to invest in industry leading technology; and its commitment to applying state-of-the-art Lean manufacturing tools and principles.
Coverstar is now offering up to $35,000 personal financing with rates starting at 6.78%APR.
Coverstar has the most comprehensive warranty in the industry. Coverstar offers a limited 7 year warranty on its fabric. This warranty includes things that other manufacturers don’t. For example, it includes the heat seal between the webbing to the fabric. All other manufacturers sew their webbing to their fabric and do not usually warranty this connection as it can come apart before the cover needs to be replaced due to the breakdown of the threads. Coverstar heat seals its webbing directly to the fabric and is covered under the same warranty as the cover materials itself.
Additionally, in 2011, Coverstar will release its PowerFlex™ rope. This is the latest in rope technology and will be covered under a two year no break warranty and is warranted for manufacturing defects.
Coverstar’s Eclipse mechanism is covered under a 20 year limited warranty. CS3000, SwimWise and Coverluxe mechanisms are covered under a 10 year limited warranty. The motor is covered under a 5 year limited warranty. Other electrical components are covered under a three year limited warranty.
