Having a backyard pool means spending time outside, splashing in the water, and soaking up all the sun with family and friends. However, once summer fades and the temperatures drop, you must consider keeping your pool safe, clean, and warm during the colder weather. The most effective solution to this problem is to get a pool safety cover. Its multi-purposes make it a great investment for every responsible pool owner. 

Here are a few reasons why it’s a good idea to upgrade to a pool safety cover:

  • Pool safety covers keep the pool clean. Without a cover, anything from in and around the surrounding area can find its way into the pool, including leaves, branches, toys, and other unwanted items you don’t want to see in your pool.
  • When evaporation occurs, you must compensate for the temperature change and the lost water. A pool safety cover ensures that this process is slowed down so that too much water doesn’t get wasted.
  • Depending on the environment, the chemical balance of your pool can go through different changes. Sunlight is one of the major factors contributing to breaking down the chemistry of your pool water. Covering the pool reduces the amount of sunlight coming in contact with your pool, thereby prolonging the effects of chlorine and other chemicals. It also reduces the growth of algae in the pool.
  • Pool safety covers aren’t just for keeping the pool clean and healthy but also as an extra layer of protection. A pool safety cover protects yourself, your kids, and your pets from falling in. Most pool safety covers can hold up to a few hundred pounds, acting as a solid barrier between your family and the pool.
