Case Studies

Below are our featured case studies.

 

Case Study One:

Pool Room in Home Converted to Custom Basketball Court

Solid floor pool cover that is retractable

Overview:

A residence in Wisconsin had a dedicated pool room that they wanted to be a multi-use facility – primarily an indoor basketball court.

Challenge:

The following were our key challenges:

  1. The pool had an irregular shape.
  2. The room did not have enough space to place our racking mechanism.

Solution:

A new foundation was dug out to meet the needs of the automated racking system outside of the pool room.

Results:

The homeowner claimed the following benefits:

  • “We have not used our $50,000.00 air exchanger that we bought when we installed the pool since we got our cover.”
  • “Our gas bill went down $900 a month” – This is because the cover is insulated (keeps heat in water) and also creates significantly less water evaporation.
  • “The moisture that use to protrude through the rest of house is gone” – Our cover should slowdown and help prevent moisture damage to structure.
  • “We have no more worries about the kids being in house and going through pool area” – Kids cannot drown on a basketball floor.
  • “The kids enjoy playing basketball indoors” – Because this region experiences a winter season, indoor space is at a premium.

 

Case Study Two:

Retractable Indoor Pool Cover Converts Pool Room Into a Large Open Room in a Home

Load-bearing retractable pool cover puts floor over pool

Overview:

This was our initial installation and has been the base of our testing for over 12 years.

Challenge:

We had many challenges in developing our system. This installation provided the the adaptability to teach us the true needs of the WutPool system.

Solution:

By tackling obstacles in various ways, we have refined all of the critical components to make our concept work.

Results:

  • The value of the house you are looking at should go up in value once the cover is installed, as now that room is considered living space when appraised.
  • A unique feature with our cover is that you can forget about your pool for a while and use it again later (which has just happened in our house – pool is once again being used daily for “getting in shape”).
