pit cover support beam

residential reels

hidden pool cover system 

Pool covers are a good idea; they reduce the amount of leaves, dirt and debris getting into your pool, manage pool temperature and extend your swimming season, and because they prevent evaporation, they can reduce a pool’s running costs significantly. However, many owners don’t want to look at their pool covers, or trip over them. They want to hide their pool covers under their decks: another good idea. At BMH, our pit cover support beams for a hidden pool cover system make doing just that even easier.
