What Covers Do You Need For A Swimming Pool?

Posted by Liz Seyi on December 23rd, 2019

At this time of year when the weather is starting to worsen and you might find yourself using your swimming pool less and less often, it’s well worth assessing the Swimming Pool Covers that you have – indeed, if you yet have any at all – and which new ones you might need to purchase.

With so many different types and brands of swimming pool covers out there, it can be easy for a first-time swimming pool owner to feel overwhelmed at first.

However, this shouldn’t need to be the case, as there are only really three broad types of swimming pool covers that you need to be aware of:Solar Covers, winter covers and pool enclosures. These naturally each bring different advantages in accordance with their purpose.

So, what purposes do different swimming pool covers serve?

The basic rules to know about swimming pool covers is that a solar cover is used during the summer to keep the heat in your pool, while a Winter Coveris used during the colder and rainier months to prevent leaves and other debris from entering the water.

It’s therefore typical to switch from a solar cover to a winter one – and back again – over the course of a year, reflecting that your needs from a cover will be different at times of differing levels of pool usage. You won’t need a swimming pool cover that’s specifically designed to preserve the heat in your pool water, for instance, at a time when you aren’t even using the pool very much and external conditions are cold and inhospitable anyway.

But as aforementioned, there’s also such a thing as a Pool Enclosure. This type of pool cover enables you to effectively extend the swimming season, with the ‘cover’ being positioned sufficiently high above the water surface to enable you to continue swimming, while shielding both you and the water from the elements.

We offer an assortment of highly rated DIY and made-to-measure pool enclosures at very competitive prices here at Pool Warehouse, so they may be well worth considering, alongside the good-value and well-made solar covers and winter covers we are also pleased to have in our stock.
