The Benefits of Installing a Hard Pool Cover

Having a swimming pool in your backyard is a great way to enjoy the summer months and have fun with family and friends. But it's also important to remember that pools can be dangerous if not properly secured. That's why it's essential to invest in a hard pool cover to protect your pool and keep your family safe. A hard pool cover is much heavier and more difficult to install than a retractable floor, so you may need to hire a professional pool company to put it on.

Latham solid and mesh pool safety covers are the strongest and most reliable way to prevent loved ones, children, and pets from entering your pool unattended. Custom designed to fit your pool and made from best-in-class materials, Latham winter pool safety covers protect both your family and your investment. Automatic pool covers are also an excellent option for homeowners who want to avoid accidents or keep their loved ones and pets out of harm's way. These covers offer the most complete and maintenance-free protection than any other cover.

They come with the right amount of water bags and a central drain that allows rainwater to go down the drain, eliminating the need for a cover pump or siphon hoses. Plus, they offer a 50 MPH wind guarantee, so you can be sure that your pool is secure even in strong winds. Solar covers are also available for above ground pools, but they should not be used as a substitute for proper pool safety or adult supervision. Solar covers are designed to help retain the heat that is already in the water, but they won't provide the same level of protection as a hard pool cover.

When installing a hard pool cover, it's important to remember that the material of the pool deck is the biggest obstacle in the initial installation. The hardware must be drilled and inserted into the platform to keep the cover in place. Once installed, these covers are designed to support occasional weight in an emergency, and taking a step or two to clean leaves or other debris is fine during normal use of an automatic retractable pool cover. If you're looking for an extra layer of protection around your pool, investing in a hard pool cover is an excellent choice.
