Benefits of Pool Safety Covers
Installing a pool safety cover is one of the easiest ways to
protect your pool while ensuring the safety of your loved ones. Accidental
drownings are all too common, an occurrence that happens on average 3,536 times every year
and safety covers are the key to preventing this tragedy. While safety is the number one reason we recommend pool safety
covers, they also play an important role in preserving your pool year after
year and making spring opening a breeze.
Pool safety covers can actually protect your pool by keeping
debris from getting in your pool when not in use, making maintenance easier
when the cover is removed. As well as blocking sunlight from reaching the pool
water, helping to prevent algae growth. Pool safety covers can also a great
energy-saving tool that can conserve water and reduce chemical consumption.
Types of Safety Covers
There are two types of pool safety covers, each with its own
advantages: solid and mesh pool covers. Solid pool covers keep sunlight, water,
debris, dirt, and winter leaves from entering the pool. Though the downside to
solid pool covers is that water from rain or snowfall cannot drain and must be
pumped off. At Pool Supply Unlimited, we carry the PoolTux solid safety cover,
which features a patented Aquaduct drain that runs from one end of the cover to
the other, eliminating water that would otherwise puddle on top of the cover.
Thanks to their tightly woven design, mesh pool covers allow water
to pass through, eliminating the need for pumping water off the top of your
pool cover. While a downside to mesh covers is that they can allow dirt and
debris pass through with the water leaving you with a mess to clean up come
springtime. Arctic Armor and Loop-Loc mesh safety covers are constructed
with an extremely tightly woven mesh that allows water to pass through while
filtering out debris for pool spring cleaning made easy. All safety pool covers
come with pool cover anchors for easy setup and take-down.
Pool Safety Covers vs Winter Covers
There are a few major differences between pool safety covers and
winter covers. For starters, winter covers offer pool protection from mainly
the elements, and should not be relied on to keep children or pets out, since they
cannot support concentrated weight like the tight fit of safety covers can.
Winter pool covers also require more maintenance and supervision than safety
