Traditional In-Ground Installation

The perfect option for your tiled, paved or concreted areas. This option is suitable for back-filling. Adequate pit drainage is very important, each system has drainage holes for self drainage at the base therefore needing a path beneath the unit to carry away any water.

Timber Decking Installation

Suitable for suspension under decking. The cover lid will sit flush the timber decking with an opening of 270mm wide. A cavity must be created below the decking so the cover can be rolled up in unrestricted space.

Pit Location

Place the unit as close to the pool as possible with the lid hinging away from the pool. The closer the unit is to the pool the less drag and damage might be caused to the Cover as it is pulled across the pool coping. The body of the unit should make a 90 degree angle to the direction of the pool cover travel.

Suitable for Kidney Shaped Pools

Yes you can install a Downunder system for your rounded or kidney shaped pool! This is one of our most commonly asked questions when people are renovating their existing pool set up. The cover is simply cut to shape and the system installed a per the above installation methods to suit.
