These are a favorite option since they are easy to install and inexpensive. With a design much like translucent bubble wrap, solar pool covers are made to soak up the sun’s heat in the daytime and keep holding this heat when the temperature outside drops during the night. In addition to being the only pool cover that can increase the temperature of water, solar pool covers reduce evaporation, minimizing the need to top up your pool water and regulate its chemical levels which, in turn, decreases your maintenance costs.

Safety Pool Covers

Safety pool covers are perfect for most families since they can be used all year round, and they are made to support weight, which stops animals and people from falling into the swimming pool. There are two main kinds of safety pool covers: Mesh and solid.

Mesh covers: keep debris and leave out while also permitting melting snow and rain to seep through into the swimming pool. The drawback is that this outside water could make your pool quite filthy over the winter season; however, it also means that you do not have to be concerned about accumulating water weighing the pool cover down.

Solid safety covers: alternatively, are made of a solid vinyl material, are extremely effective in protecting your swimming pool from sunlight and debris; but they do not permit water to pass through, so they usually have a drain panel or need a pump so as to stop precipitation from building up on top over the winter months.
