The world of pool and spa decks has seen a revolution with the introduction of retractable solutions like the R3TRACT Pool and Spa Decks. Homeowners are intrigued by the promise of versatility, safety, and luxury these decks bring to the table. In this post, we tackle the top 10 frequently asked questions to give you a clearer perspective.

  1. What is a R3TRACT Pool and Spa Deck? A R3TRACT Pool and Spa Deck is an innovative, retractable, and load-bearing pool cover system. Beyond just covering your pool or spa, it offers multi-functionality—turning your pool area into usable space like a patio, dance floor, or even a play area.
  2. How does it work? The R3TRACT system operates through a series of mechanical and electronic controls. Some models, like The Rise, can be controlled via a mobile app, allowing users to set the depth of the pool or retract the cover completely. Other models, like The Fold, operate vertically and fold upright.
  3. What are the safety features? Safety is a primary concern for R3TRACT decks. They are designed with a solid platform that mitigates water hazards, provides an anti-slip surface when closed, and can only be operated through a password-protected app. This ensures that unauthorized or accidental access is prevented.
  4. How much weight can these decks support? R3TRACT decks are designed to be load-bearing and can support thousands of pounds, making them perfect for gatherings or using the space for other recreational purposes when the pool or spa is covered.
  5. Are there customizable design options available? Absolutely. R3TRACT pool covers are bespoke and made to order. They can be designed to accommodate pools of any size, shape, and finish. Before installation, customers can visualize the finished product via 2D & 3D renders.
  6. How do R3TRACT decks help in reducing maintenance costs? Retractable pool covers like R3TRACT can significantly cut down on maintenance costs. They offer a 90% reduction in water evaporation, 50% reduction in electricity costs, 70% reduction in both pool heating and chemical use costs. The cover also keeps out debris, reducing the need for frequent cleaning.
  7. Can it be installed on existing pools or only on new ones? The R3TRACT system is versatile and can be installed for both new and existing pools. Adept Builders will assess the current pool setup and recommend the best R3TRACT model to suit the situation.
