Obviously, not all covers are alike in cost, materials, and purpose. They range from no-frills tarps to automatic, custom-fit covers that can be operated by the touch of a button. Budget, convenience, and the level of protection needed will influence your choice.
Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best, both for cost and ease of use. Tarp-like covers will keep some or most of the debris out and should be anchored or attached to the pool’s edges so that they don’t blow away. You can even buy swimming pool covers from various manufacturers online.
They come in large sheets or rolls and can be cut to fit most pool shapes, even custom-designed pool shapes like boomerangs and guitars.
A smarter investment would be a manual system. Easy to manage and able to cover your pool with a little physical exertion, these pool covers are perfect for budget-savvy pool owners who don’t mind a little “manual labor”.
The ideal pool cover, automatic covers are easy to use, save time, look good, conserve more energy and heat, and perhaps most importantly — keep children, pets, and loved ones safe when the pool is not in use.
If you’re in the lucky position of building a new pool, your pool contractor can integrate a Cover-Pool retracted system that can be completely hidden from view.
