Pool covers can be made out of vinyl, polyethylene, bubble wrap or even solar. While every pool does not need a cover, there are a variety of reasons that is beneficial, including save an owner a lot of extra work and even extend the pool season. Read on to learn some benefits of a pool cover.
Keep the Pool Warm
Covering up a heated pool when it’s not in use saves energy and will reduce heat loss. This is especially important if you live in a location where the temperatures drop significantly at night. If the pool is not covered, the water temperature can drop as much as 5 degrees during the night. With a cover on, the temperature loss is about half that. The cover also stops the water from losing heat by protecting it from cooling winds. It is a good idea to keep the pool covered at night to retain the warm water. This will also save you money as you will not need to spend as much to heat your pool.
Slow Down Evaporation
A pool that has no cover loses about an inch to an inch and a half of water every week because of evaporation. Though that may not sound like a lot, for a large pool, it means hundreds of gallons. The pool cover also prevents the chemicals that keep the water clear and clean from evaporating as well.
Covers prevent debris, such as leaves and bugs, from entering your pool. A cover saves you time from having to strain the pool with a net every time you want to use it. Just think, you’ll be able to spend this time swimming instead!
There are many pool covers to choose from. Some are manual, where the owner has to pull it on and off and others allow you to put it on and off with the push of a button. The takeaway is that a pool cover can save you money, time and labor. To learn more, contact Infinite Pools online or call 951-354-9888.
