As Labor Day draws near, it’s time for pool owners to think about fall and autumn pool preparation.
This is a great time of year to reflect on the advantages of pool safety covers.
Let’s start with the aspect of safety. A quality pool safety cover is designed to protect small children and pets. Safety should, of course, be paramount when choosing a pool safety cover, so invest in a quality product. Don’t try and go the “cheap” route.
So how do you choose a reliable pool safety cover?
• Consider the type of pool you have. It should go without saying that an in-ground pool cover will probably not work with an above-ground pool. When you are shopping for a pool cover, always keep the phrase “pool covers vary” at the top of your list.
• Size and shape matter. Is your pool oval? Kidney-shaped? Rectangular? Make sure the cover will properly fit your pool.
You also need to understand that there are different types of pool covers as well. Some pool covers are designed to save energy. Nothing wrong there! Swimming pool heating costs can greatly be reduced by using a pool cover. A home swimming pool can lose energy in a variety of ways. Evaporation is near the top of the list. The evaporation rate can vary depending on a pool’s temperature, air temperature and humidity. This is especially important to remember in New England, where early fall weather can be a bit unpredictable. A good pool cover will minimize evaporation and help reduce pool heating costs.
