Winter Pool Covers: Which Is best For You?

BY: Admin0 COMMENTS CATEGORY: pool covers

Pool covers serve different purposes for different pool owners.  Some pool owners simply want to reduce water evaporation, chemicals from being lost and keeping dirt out of the pool.  Covering your pool when your not using it can save a lot of money in water and chemicals.


Standard Pool Covers

These pool covers are just what they sound like, standard pool covers.  Most are similar to a tarp and last only a few years before the outside elements start taking a toll on the material, needing to be replaced usually every 3-4 years. Water also tends to gather on the top of the cover when it rains, or if any pool water was able to get on the top of the cover; this can cause the tarp to actually sink to the bottom of the pool, along with all the dirt, leaves and junk that were on the top of the tarp.  The standard pool tarp isn’t a bad option, but has a very standard purpose only.

Safety Pool Covers

Pool covers that help stop the accidental fall in the pool fall into this category, and are great for families with small children.  These pool covers are made of a few different types of materials, and vary in design.  The commonality of these pool covers is they are usually a lot stronger than the standard pool covers, lasting longer and typically are not too hard to remove or put back on.  These pool covers are best professionally installed, and are a more expensive option to a standard cover; most people say the extra cost was well spent.
