While we pride ourselves at Latham Pool Products on being a great resource for our customers on all things pool-related, there are certainly benefits to the many apps available to help pool owners care for their pools. Below are some apps we find particularly useful.


Note: As cost and availability (Android and iOS) of apps changes frequently, we encourage you to research your interests online to get the latest information.



Coverstar durable mesh or solid safety covers are the premium automatic pool safety covers in the industry. The Coverstar app gives you the tools you need to share, calculate, order, and design your perfect pool cover. Ideal for pool builders and homeowners, the app provides everything from a savings calculator to a step-by-step design process to a photo gallery to information on care and maintenance.
