Pool Covers – Save Lives, Energy, And Money

The main purpose of pool covers is to protect the pool from accidents, conserve heat, reduce evaporation and keep leaves and debris out. Although there are many types of covers available, they all have the same purpose. 

There are many benefits to pool coverage:

Safety – An inside-outside swimming pool cover will be safer. This will stop small animals or children from falling in the pool if no one is looking. If you have children, this feature is invaluable.

You save money- A covered pool keeps heat and energy costs down. This reduces water evaporation and keeps the chemical mixture stable for longer periods of time, which allows you to add chemicals less often.

There are two main types of pool covers available: Above ground and in-ground.

  • Safety covers

  • Winter covers

  • Leaf nets

Covers for solar pools

Safety covers can only be as effective as the construction and anchoring systems they are constructed. These covers, which are typically low-profile, are made of netted mesh or braided and are attached to ground pools by a series of springs or hooks. 

This safety feature requires solid and dedicated decking. Mesh is a great cover material as it allows water to drain off the top while keeping leaves out of the water and preventing accidental falls.

The winter covers are typically made from polypropylene material with threads that will not rot in the elements. To keep winter lids functional and durable, winter covers often use multiple stitches and sealants.

Leaf nets are easy to understand. This mesh net is usually placed over a winter cover. The mesh traps all leaves and other debris that may end up on the cover. You can scoop up all the debris and dispose of it immediately after swimming season ends.
