Why You Should Get an Automatic Pool Reel Cover

Having an automatic pool cover is undeniably one of the best ways to secure your outdoor or indoor pool. Other types of covers offer a useful function or two. However, automatic pool covers provide benefits that go above and beyond that. Needless to say, you are making a valuable investment when you decide to get one for your own home. Here are the top reasons why you should get an automatic pool cover.

Have a Durable Protection for your Pool

Here at Coves in Play, we offer retractable reels made of premium quality parts and state-of-the-art electronics. We manufacture them with long-lasting materials, high torque motors, and other durable parts and materials. We are confident with the level of durability that our automatic pool reel covers offer. As such, we back it up with one of the best warranties for this type of product. You can expect to use it for many years to come.

Cover your Pool with Ease

The problem with most kinds of swimming pool covers is they are so frustrating to handle. It will usually take you a long time to put them on or remove them off the pool. Because they are so inconvenient, homeowners tend to avoid using them all together. Of course, you would not get any benefits from an unused pool cover. On the other hand, an automatic pool cover can roll on or off the pool on its own. All you need to do is press a button and it will automatically cover or uncover the swimming pool.

Cut Down Maintenance Costs

Another benefit of owning an automatic pool cover is cutting down your maintenance expenses. It will help you save money on chemicals and water. Keep in mind that evaporation is one of the primary reasons why there’s water loss in a pool. Your automatic pool cover can reduce the effects of evaporation. It is also worth noting that since there is no air gap between the cover and the surface of the water, you can prevent the process of evaporation from even taking place.

Since the balanced and chemically treated water does not evaporate away, you can save a significant amount of money. You will not have to purchase new chemicals and replace the water as often. Aside from that, you can save on energy costs because you will be able to effectively trap a significant amount of heat below the cover. It will function like a blanket that keeps your pool nice and warm.

Keep the Pool Area Safe

If you have young children living in your home, then pool safety is one of your biggest concerns. Of course, there are plenty of safety measures you can take, including installing pool alarms, encouraging swimming lessons, mounting fences, and enforcing strict pool rules. Moreover, one of the best ways to secure the pool area is providing proper adult supervision.

When it comes to the best physical barriers, having a sturdy automatic pool enclosure is among the best options for boosting safety. At Covers in Play, they offer strong and durable automatic pool enclosures. Since they are robust, they can prevent people—especially young children—and pets from getting near the pool.

Keep your Pool Open Year Round

If you live in a cool region where the temperatures don’t drop below freezing during the winter season, you might consider not closing down your pool for several months. You can use your automatic pool reel cover for this process. As well, you can still use the product throughout spring and summer in fact all year round.

It would be wise if you select an automatic pool reel that provides an on/off function that activates with a key. This way, you can ensure that only authorized people and adults can take the cover off the pool. The electric pool cover comes with a safety key. Before anyone can operate the Auto Pool Reel, they must insert the key into the unit and rotate it at 90 degrees. This is the only way to turn the microcontroller on and activate the automatic electric pool cover.

Auto Pool Reel – The Best Electric Pool Cover Option

We provide the ideal way to cover and uncover your pool. Our innovative electric pool cover—the Auto Pool Reel—has two end supports as well as a main reel and control motors that are all controlled by a built-in microchip. By pushing the button, you can deploy the cover over the water automatically in less than two minutes.

If you decide to cover the pool, you can push the button and it will return onto the roller by itself. Of course, the process will also take less than two minutes. What’s more, you do not need a hand just to cover or uncover your pool. It can be operated by one person, using a simple one-touch deployment system.

One of the great qualities of the Auto Pool Reel is it does not have any tracks—not under the edges or coping, nor on the top of the deck. So, there is no tripping hazard. Moreover, this design places the blanket out flat, right above the surface of the water. Once you deploy it, you will not worry about losing water due to evaporation.

Most new pool owners do not consider investing in an automatic pool cover system. After all, it is common knowledge that this product is prohibitively expensive.
