10 Reasons to Cover Your Pool Every Night

Do you need to cover your swimming pool every night? The answer is yes, and here are 10 compelling reasons why. Pool covers made of sturdy fiberglass mesh will prevent anyone from falling into the water, as long as they are fixed and installed correctly. They also reduce the amount of UV light that comes into contact with water, meaning you won't have to add as much chlorine. Winter covers protect the pool from stains, algae growth and poor water balance that could damage pool surfaces. A pool cover also saves energy and conserves water by decreasing the amount of make-up water, reduces the consumption of chemicals, and saves a lot of cleaning time. An air pillow is used to relieve stress from the sides of the pool, as rain and snow fall, causing the cover to fall. Pool covers also maintain and even slightly increase the temperature of the water. Lastly, they let everyone know it's not open for swimming and it's not ready to use, reducing the chance of someone trying to be a crowd showing off when submerged in water at sub-zero temperatures. Installing a pool cover is beneficial for many reasons, so make sure you get one today!
