When it comes to practical pool accessories, a pool cover has got to be at the top of the list and a lot of people find a cover to be a valuable addition to their pool. Now that we’re entering into the summer months, now is the perfect time to invest in a pool cover. Let’s take a look at the benefits a cover for your pool this summer!
Anyone who has owned a pool over the summer knows the impact that those beautiful sunny days have on the water levels and the high level of evaporation over summer means lots of top ups with the hose. If you invest in a pool cover, you’ll see a dramatic decrease in evaporation which does good things for your water bill and means you won’t need to be continually topping up your water levels.
Saves money on chemicals
During the summer months, your pool gets more of a workout which means that the water needs more chemicals. This is not only due to the increased bodies in the water – chlorine also degrades in the sunlight and this can lead to additional problems such as algae blooms. Because your pool cover helps protects the water from sunlight, this means less chlorine degradation so you don’t need to run your pump for as long or add as many chemicals to balance the water.
With the increased use of your pool, maintenance always seems to go up a level in the summer and anything that makes this process easier is a bonus. Pool covers have the major advantage of preventing leaves and debris from getting into your pool which means less strain on your filter, fewer issues with cloudy water and less work for you fishing debris out the pool.
Options to suit every budget
The great thing about pool covers is that you have a number of different options depending on your lifestyle and budget. If you simply want to stop leaves and debris from entering your pool, you can purchase a simple leaf cover to protect the surface. A bubble cover is also a cost effective option which has the added bonus of heating the pool. If you want to go the next step up, there are also thermal blankets and slat covers.
