Pool covers are essential for both indoor and outdoor pools. Open pools attract filth easily. They ensure hygiene and safety, as the chances of accumulation of dirt and careless falling can be avoided.
Pool cover offers numerous benefits to the owners and is therefore necessary for any pool, private or public. The three main benefits of a pool cover are:
Prevents accidents: The main reason why you should cover your swimming pool is that it acts as a WatchGuard. Accidents such as drowning are often associated with pools, and unguarded pools are always dangerous when not in use. Small children and pets are always at risk of falling into it at any time.
Since it is not practical to appoint a watchman for your pool, using a pool cover can keep these mishaps at bay. It is always good to invest a bit in safety while you invest in your recreation.
Saves on costs: Pool covers prevent pools from getting dirty. It also decreases the need for heating, chemical treatments, and cleaning thereby reducing the overall maintenance cost of the swimming pool. Since you don't use the cleaning equipment frequently it will last longer than the said time. Thus saving you some money on it as well.
Prevents water/heat loss: Uncovered pools are subject to water loss due to evaporation. Studies say that 1000s of liters of water evaporate from pools daily. Keeping it open also causes heat loss, which makes you heat it up multiple times a day. The cover prevents both these to a good degree.
