Swimming Pool Covers by Covers in Play’s
Swimming pool covers or pool blankets have been around for decades and for decades they have offered some simple solutions. Prevention of evaporation, reduction in chemical use, keeping flying debris like dust and leaves out of the pool. Retaining heat in the water saves energy cost, as well as water savings. Pool Covers are a great idea. A pool is most efficiently operated by using a cover or blanket system daily. And especially having the pool cover on at night when temperatures drop. But it takes work. Lots of work. Daily work.
Every pool owner has purchased at least one pool cover system. For sure when getting a new pool installed and later when it’s outlived it’s service life. What a chore! What a pain! Just using the blanket is a hassle. Getting it on and off the water. And the quality of blanket is another. Some fall apart. UV make them brittle. Some even crack into pieces. And then, there’s the cost. Cover after cover.
Consistently getting the blanket onto the water in the right position has always been tough. Sometimes it goes ok, two people can do it, when someone else is available, but in the end, most people just leave it off. Forget the evaporation. Forget the heat loss. Don’t worry about the vacuuming. Its’ automatic anyway. Chemicals? Well, it’s a small cost, really. I can live with it.
