There are four main categories of pool covers. These include mesh covers, thermal covers, solar blankets, and automatic rollers.
Mesh covers primarily function to keep debris out of the pool, while thermal covers work to keep heat trapped in your pool's water. Solar blankets are spread across the surface of a pool to help generate and trap in heat from the sun, but are not very useful as debris barriers.
There are also automatic roller systems available for all types of pool covers. These gadgets assist you with covering and uncovering your pool more easily while also providing storage for your cover.
Pool covers can be made out of a variety of materials, but most of them are made with different varieties of plastic. The most common three plastics used are vinyl, UV-stabilised polyethylene, and polypropylene.
Yes, pool covers are available for irregularly shaped pools, but it may be difficult to find pre-made covers that fit your pool's specifications. In these cases, a cover can be manufactured by a supplier to fit your specific pool.
Sometimes, irregularly-shaped pools can be covered with a regular-shaped cover so long as the cover is large enough to suit the widest dimensions of the irregularly-shaped pool.
Depending on the type of pool cover you have, the material it is composed of, and the quality of manufacturing it was produced with, you should expect most pool covers to last from 8-12 years.
Cheaper or thinner pool covers will have shorter lifespans, with the most budget-friendly options often only getting 3-5 years of longevity.
Pool covers help to keep your pool clean by keeping airborne debris out of your pool. Most plant-based debris enters your pool because of the wind, and while your pool is covered none of it can reach your water.
Pool covers also drastically reduce your energy costs if you have a heated pool (whether solar, gas or heat pump powered). This is because covers for heated pools are designed to trap warmth from the water, reducing the need to generate more heat for the pool.
Pool covers also prevent evaporation, which is one of the leading causes of chemical deterioration. By keeping your pool covered while it is not in use, you can actually save money on pool maintenance chemicals such as chlorine.
