Why You Need a Safety Cover for Your Swimming Pool

Nothing is better in the summertime than having a cool, clear pool in the backyard to spend your days swimming in, tanning next to, and generally cooling off from the summer heat. For any pool owner, maintenance and safety are big concerns, so it can be worth it to consider installing a mesh safety cover for your pool. As a top pool company in Acworth, we’ve outlined some of the advantages you can benefit from by choosing a safety cover.

1. Keeps Out Debris

One of the biggest advantages of a cover is that it keeps out debris like leaves, sticks, and bugs and means you don’t have to constantly clean out your pool before jumping in. This is especially helpful in places with a lot of storms or wind, where the pool can get mucky overnight and take hours to clean the next day.

2. Saves Money

Pool covers also save a lot of money on maintenance costs because they can help regulate temperature and chemicals and cut down on the continual upkeep needed with pricey heaters or chemicals. Having the insulation also helps keep the water warm!

3. Prevents Dangerous Situations

For families with small children or pets, there can be concerns about having an open pool in the backyard without any kind of railing or safety system. Most safety coverings, if they’ve been installed by a professional, can easily hold the weight of a person and prevent any accidents. In fact, many covers can hold hundreds to several thousand pounds, meaning they are not only safer but also durable and long lasting.

4. Conserves Water

Pool covers are great at preventing evaporation, especially in the hot sun, and they can keep your water level much higher for longer before you need to add more. Not only is this good for the environment, it cuts down on time, effort, and cost to you of upkeep on the pool.
