The Useful Swimming Pool Covers
An outdoor swimming pool is a luxurious addition to a real estate investment. To keep a swimming pool free of leaves, grass, debris and bugs, it’s important to use a pool cover when the pool isn’t in use. Besides, it helps keep the water of the pool free from falling leaves and debris that tend to get accumulated during the colder months. They also prevent the growth of algae on the inside of the swimming pool by restricting the light from penetrating into the pool. During winter months, the swimming pool cover is the usually the final element added when winterizing one’s pool. After the pool water has been drained to an appropriate level and the winterizing chemicals have been added, the cover is set in place. The pool cover will serve to prevent dirt, debris, small animals, and pollution from making their way into the pool water. The cover, when used in conjunction with the winterizing chemicals, will also serve to prevent algae from forming on the pool’s liner during the winter freeze.
Swimming pool covers are UV (ultra violet) inhibited, come in all shapes and sizes and are available for both inground and above-ground pools. Prices for pool covers will vary depending on the size of the cover, the quality of the polypropylene and the warranty that accompanies the product. Pool covers are usually 3 to 5 feet larger than the pool openings. Other useful pool covers available are solar covers, which can help raise the temperature in any swimming pool, and leaf nets; thin, screen-like covers that keep leaves from entering the water. Finally, a useful, low-cost device pool owners should consider purchasing as a supplement to their cover is a winter cover siphon drain.
