Pool cover advice: In the last number of decades marketing focus seems to have focused a lot on getting products to handle the menial tasks (an automatic garage door can open and close itself, lights can turn themselves off and on, robotic vacuum cleaners can go from room to room without anyone's help—even pool covers can roll and unroll themselves).
Today, you can buy an automated safety pool cover that actually rolls and unrolls itself. Though, be warned, a device like this does come at a price. You might wind up paying somewhere between $8 and $12 grand.
*This might not be a smart investment if you have little ones—remember that this thing can open the pool cover automatically (which can get dangerous if it gets into the wrong, little hands).
