Owning a swimming pool can be good for your health and a lot of fun at the same time. Getting in the swimming pool on a hot day is a great way to enjoy yourself with your friends or family. It is also a great way to get regular exercise and to teach your children to swim. Keeping a swimming pool in good shape and preventing algae from becoming a problem can take a lot of time and effort. It is for this reason that swimming pool covers can help to save you a lot of time and money as well as helping to keep your family safe. There are many reasons as to why you should invest in swimming pool covers but here are three of the best.
1. Reduce The Cost Of Heating Your Pool – Solar swimming pool covers are a great idea as they are designed to heat the pool using heat from the sun. They do this by reducing the amount of heat that is lost as a result of the water on the surface evaporating. On average a pool loses 90% of its heat through surface water evaporation and a solar pool cover will help to prevent this from happening. As less heat is lost, less heat is needed to keep it warm. This should help reduce the amount you spend on running your swimming pool heater.
2. Protect Your Pets And Children – If your pool is outdoors then you’re not likely to be using it in the winter but there is always the danger that your child or pet could accidentally walk out on to it. A safety cover comes with reinforced webbing straps that can take much more weight than a regular winter cover. Therefore a safety cover will prevent a pet or animal from drowning by supporting their weight.
3. Keeping Your Pool Clean – It is important to cover your pool when you aren’t using it to prevent rubbish, leaves and any other unwanted debris from falling in to the water. Using a net to get leaves out of the water can save your pool filter and pump but it can be a very time consuming task. Keeping the swimming pool cover on when you aren’t using it will reduce the amount of debris that fall in the water and make it easier to keep clean.
