Pool covers have a number of advantages – they keep dirt and debris out of the pool, extend your swimming season and significantly reduce evaporation. So, which pool cover is right for you? There are a number of different options available and at the top end of the market are slat pool covers, which are made of rigid, interlocking slats. Let’s take a look at what you need to know about this pool cover choice.
Long Lasting Option
The slat pool cover is designed to be a long term investment and can last many years. This means that you don’t need to worry about frequent replacements like you do with other options, such as bubble covers. Slat covers can be made from a range of different materials and their rigid construction makes them highly durable.
Slat pool covers tend to be the easiest to operate given their ability to be automated. Unlike manual options, this makes life much easier as your pool cover can retract at the touch of a button. Given that slat covers are heavy due to their construction, automated functionality makes practical sense.
Ability to Hold Weight
One of the main features of the slat pool cover which makes it so popular is that it’s safe due to its ability to hold weight. If you’re worried about safety around your pool, a slat pool cover will be able to hold to weight of a child and offers the best peace of mind compared to other pool cover options.
Protects Again Debris
The rigid construction of the slat pool cover offers a physical barrier against dirt and debris which would otherwise get into the pool. It’s also easier to clear the debris off the slatted surface with a broom, rather than having to contend with a cover which is sagging in the middle from the additional weight.
More Expensive Option
It should come as no surprise that the slat pool cover, being at the top end of the market, also comes with an increased price tag. However, it’s the longest lasting option and offers many people the safety aspect that is lacking with other covers.
Unlike DIY options such as leaf and bubble covers, slat pool covers will require professional installation by your local pool experts.
