Why You Need to Install a Pool Cover

From increased safety to decreased maintenance costs, pool covers can benefit owners of both above-ground pools and in-ground pools. If you want to take advantage of these benefits, give us a call and our team will be happy to order a pool cover for you! Discover four important reasons why you should install a pool cover:

1. Acts as a Barrier

When properly installed, a pool cover acts as a protective barrier and increases safety for people and pets. Even when a pool cover is on, children should never be left alone outside. While it does drastically decrease the chance of falling in, it should not replace an adult’s watchful eye.

2. Saves Pool Water

Even in the winter months, the Georgia sun is HOT. The heat of the sun will cause a portion of your pool’s water to evaporate. By installing a cover when your pool is not in use, you will eliminate evaporation and save money on having to refill your pool with water. (Did you know that UV light degrades chlorine? By adding a pool cover, you’ll also save money on the cost of chemicals.)

3. Maximizes Your Time

You won’t have to be cleaning your pool all the time, thanks to your pool cover! We recommend sweeping the area around your pool to remove leaves, sticks, or other debris that could rip your pool cover during a storm.

4. Reduces the Load on Your Pump & Filter

Your pool’s pump and filter are two systems that keep the pool water clean and circulating. Your pump works hard to pull water in, push it through the filter, and release it back into the pool. Without unnecessary debris in your pool (thanks to your pool cover!), your pump and filter will enjoy a long lifespan.
