“Why should I get a pool cover? Is it important for my pool?” Chances are if you own a pool you have asked yourself these questions a couple times. Allow Samson Pools to enlighten you on the many benefits a pool cover can provide you.

Helps the swimming pool retain heat

Using a pool cover can help keep your pool temperature warm and beautiful for swimming. If your pool is already heated, covering it at night will reduce heat loss. If your pool relies on the sun for heat, a solar pool cover is the most appropriate for you. A solar pool cover attracts the sun’s rays which warms the water. By putting a cover on at night the water temperature will not be effected by the overnight temperature drop.

Keep the pool a little cleaner

Overnight wind can blow leaves, twigs, and other debris into your clean pool. Having a pool cover can save you the trouble of fishing the debris in the morning. It also protects the water from birds and other backyard animals from “doing their business” in your pool water. By having a pool cover you are able to prevent vacuuming every day before getting into the pool. A cover provides you with more time to relax and less time on maintenance.

Safety first

Once you are done swimming, putting a cover on your pool can give you peace of mind knowing there will be no unnoticed falling into the pool. A fiberglass pool cover can prevent anyone from falling into the water. Fiberglass can hold up to 400 pounds per square foot if properly installed. Tarps and solar covers do not provide safety protection against falling into the water.
