Everybody knows that swimming
pool covers can help to make sure the pool stays clean when
it is not in use. But there are some other uses for pool covers
that some are unaware of.
The right kind of pool cover can actually attract and circulate
the sun’s heat into your pool water. This can extend swimming
season a couple months in either direction.
It is actually pretty simple the way that this happens. First
of all, if you use a pool heater that helps keep the water warm
in the first place, this is a good initial step. What happens
is a large amount of the heat that is pumped into your pool evaporates
and leaves the pool soon after it enters inside, unless you invest
in a cover.
covers are placed tightly on the pool and do not allow any
heat from the pool to escape. This means that all of the warm
water you are paying to pump into the pool is able to stay in
there longer. Pool covers also cut down on water evaporation and
can save you money in the pool chemical department.
This is a good thing because it means that the swimming
pool covers will be able to keep the pool warmer in mid-spring
and early fall – times when it is usually to cold to swim.
