Full Coverage: Why Automatic Pool Covers Are the Only Option
Building a luxury inground pool is all about options. Do you choose a vinyl liner or splurge on the concrete pool? How many water features is too many? Are handrails necessary?
No matter how you specify your pool, one of the most important decisions you’ll make happens after construction: do you go with an automatic or a manual pool cover?
We at Pools of Fun highly recommend any inground pool owner spend on an automatic pool cover. Here are just a few reasons why:
Safety: There is no more important facet to pool ownership than keeping your swimmers safe. And when you have young children, keeping them out of the pool can be a challenge. Most auto covers are engineered to encompass the entire surface area of your pool, as it moves along a track attached to your pool deck. This secure coverage can prevent any unwanted swimmers from taking an unexpected dip.
Heat Source: If you’ve lived with a heated pool, you understand the feeling that hits when you receive the first gas bill of pool season. If you are a new pool owner take our word for it: the dollar amount is staggering. The material of most automatic pool covers is able to thoroughly lock in hot water and maintain high temperature without constantly cycling gallons of water pool water through your heater.
Saves on Chemicals: By the same token, enclosing hot water means less evaporation of expensive chemicals. Part of the reason pool owners shell out big bucks is to balance water that gets out of whack when the sun beats down on it all day. The best way to prevent evaporation is to keep your pool covered when not in use. Which leads to our next point…
Convenience: Accessing your pool at the touch of a button is a convenience that’s hard to describe unless you’ve lived with a manual pool cover. Cranking a lever, bending down and dragging the cover– neither method is ideal. Controlling when your pool opens and closes with a button or a switch is incredibly easy.
We at Pools of Fun suggest you invest in an automatic cover for your luxury inground pool. And, lucky for you, we carry a number of different cover options both online and our five convenient locations. Contact us today to learn more.
