Pool covers are very effective at keeping away leaves and rubbish from entering the pool. Some types of covers are specifically designed for this purpose, such as leaf and debris covers. Automatic pool covers are made larger than the pool surface so as to overlap the pool coping around its circumference.
These can be put in place at the end of the swimming season and remain there over the colder months, constantly keeping the pool clean and saving the owner hours of cleaning time.
Pool covers are great at providing and preserving warmth in the swimming pool. Depending on how much sunshine the pool receives during the day, a pool cover can increase the pool temperature by up to 8 degree Celsius.
A good habit to have is to make sure the cover is on the pool each night so that it captures the warmth provided du
ring the day. In fact, having the pool cover on the pool stops evaporation, reducing chemical loss, warming the pool and keeping out the dirt and debris.
A pool cover also reduces the amount of chlorine required to keep the pool in balance. A pool cover can greatly reduce the owner’s maintenance and for that reason, is a good investment.
