Cover to Cover

Going to great lengths: This pool was a challenge to cover due to its 75-foot length.

Another view of the pool is on the previous page.

Dealing with the elements: Despite features such as a slide, diving board and water basketball hoop, this 20-by-40-foot residential pool built by Neptune Swimming Pool Co. of Clackamas, Ore., covers up nicely.
