Whether or not you realize it, choosing the pool cover for your family’s swimming pool is incredibly important for keeping it in good condition, keeping your pool from needing costly repairs, and keeping your family safe. Here are the most common types of pool covers and what they are good for!
Bubble covers float on the ground and can be purchased for above ground and in-ground pools. They do a great job of trapping in heat, so they reduce your pool heating costs and can lengthen swim season. Just like most pool covers, they reduce evaporation and thus cleaning costs. However, bubble covers are not safety covers so they are not ideal for families with young children.
Pin Down Covers
These covers are anchored to your pool’s deck and can be purchased in either solid vinyl or mesh. They are an affordable option that can be used on in-ground or above ground pools. They can be tricky to get off, so most homeowners use them once a year when swim season ends to keep the pool protected all winter long. Solid vinyl pin down covers can be safety covers when they are properly installed. This means that you could walk across the cover without falling in the pool, making them a fantastic option for families with young children.
Automatic Pool Safety Covers
If you want the ultimate in convenience and protection, automatic pool safety covers are your best bet. These automatically go on and off of your pool by simply pushing a button. They are easy to get on and off and don’t require much hassle. Since they are on your pool frequently, you will enjoy the least amount of water and chemical loss possible and help to reduce heating costs. Many automatic pool safety covers actually pay for themselves after a couple years. Even better automatic pool safety covers can hold a large amount of weight, making them safe for the whole family.
