By listening to customers feedback, Aussie UnderCover® has improved their product range to meet the needs of designers, customers, and builders. Check out their new kit size here.
Aussie UnderCover® continually seek feedback from their customers to assist with research and development, thereby improving their product range to meet the needs of designers, customers, and builders. As such, Aussie UnderCover® has introduced a new kit size and further onsite adjustments.
Aussie UnderCover® now has a LargePlus kit size, which perfectly accommodates concrete or fibreglass pools with a 4.2m waterline. All their nine kit sizes have a 400-500mm adjustment capability. The company can also accommodate a further 100mm size adjustment on all their kits, upon request. This is especially important when correctly sizing the pit and lid frame length to ensure your surrounding finished paving or decking has clean lines with no small cuts.
When calculating the correct concrete pit size or deck opening, use the following formula. The result will determine the correct kit size required if you are matching the lid up to coping lines.

Another great advantage of the Aussie UnderCover® concrete or decking system is it fits into a tiny 390mm opening and is generally the last feature to be installed, therefore the pool or renovation can be ongoing or complete before the kit is required onsite. All planning and site specifications are provided.
Surf Beach Aussie UnderCover®
This DIY installation is a great example of taking advantage of the truly ‘hidden’ properties of the concrete and tile installation method. Nobody wants to see a standard pool cover roller around their pool, especially when they have spectacular views in a rural setting. This pool at Surf Beach on the NSW South Coast has a brick-style pattern using 30mm platinum travertine. The Aussie UnderCover® fits in perfectly without breaking the paving pattern by using a matching 12mm travertine tile using the same brick pattern on the lid frame. The Aussie UnderCover® also allows a greater use of the available space as furniture can be placed on top.
Fake grass or synthetic turf is becoming increasingly popular in modern backyards as it has clean lines, retains its good looks, and requires little maintenance. For a fuss-free yard, why not use synthetic turf around your pool and carry this over onto the lid frame of your Aussie UnderCover®, as shown in this very discreet installation example.
A perfect example of gaining valuable space by installing an Aussie UnderCover® in a deck is this installation by D C Bradley Builders in Brighton, Victoria. The new deck created the perfect place for the pool cover to hide, while not sacrificing any space or creating any visual impact. The lid frame was covered in 135 x 19 silver top ash perfectly blending into the surrounding deck.
