Owning a pool is one of life’s greatest luxuries, but it also comes with a fair share of responsibility. If you want to get the most out of your pool year-round, while protecting it and the people around it, you will need to invest in a high-quality pool cover. If you’ve recently installed a pool or if your old cover is starting to show signs of wear, Anchor Industries is a leading innovator that can provide both solid and mesh covers that are the culmination of over 40 years of technological excellence.
Find out the reasons why you need a new pool cover for winter and the new year, and make the right investment with Anchor.
1: Custom pool Covers Can Slow or Prevent Evaporation
During the driest and warmest months of the year, evaporation will become a problem for your pool. As the sun’s energy heats your pool water, it will also pull moisture from the surface. Over time, this can reduce the amount of water in your pool, forcing you to constantly top it up. In addition to being an inconvenience, evaporation can be costly. You’ll have to replace chemicals as well as water. With custom pool covers, this will no longer be a problem.
2: You Could Reduce the Chemicals You Use
Chemicals can be lost through the process of evaporation. People who don’t use safety pool covers will also find that their water is not as clean, and requires more chemical treatment throughout the year. Chemicals are essential to prevent algae growth and other contaminants. However, they are inherently harmful to humans and can cause irritation on the most sensitive skin. By keeping your pool regularly covered, you will keep chemical use to a minimum, making your pool safer and more comfortable.
3: Your Maintenance Needs Will Decrease
As much as you love your swimming pool, you probably don’t find skimming and vacuuming to be the most enjoyable home maintenance task. With a pool cover, you’ll get less dirt and debris in your pool, so overall maintenance needs will be significantly reduced. If you want to enjoy using your pool rather than being forced to clean it every other day, you’ll find great value in the custom pool covers from Anchor Industries.
4: Keep Out Debris from Trees and Your Yard
Twigs and other debris from your yard can contaminate the water, or, at the very least they will increase your cleaning needs. Dead insects, leaves, pet toys, and more can end up in your pool. You’ll find that without a cover, you’ll have to spend up to 20 minutes each day scooping up large pieces of debris with a net and telescoping pole. Obviously, this is not the way to enjoy a pool. Invest in custom pool covers and you’ll be able to use your pool for what it was meant for.
5: Retain Heat with a Solid Pool Cover
If you heat your pool during the cooler months of the year, you’ll lose a significant amount of thermal energy just by having the pool open. In most cases, you probably only use your pool for a couple of hours, compared to a whole day of maintaining the heat. With a cover, you can keep heat inside of the pool, which will reduce the strain on your heating system. Ultimately, it will keep your electric bill down and make your pool a more affordable investment.
6: You Can Save Energy
In addition to saving energy from heating, custom pool covers will reduce your energy needs in other areas. Because your cleaning needs will be reduced, you won’t have to run your filter as often. Vacuuming etc. won’t be required every day, so you’ll find energy savings with all of your standard pool maintenance tasks. Owning a pool shouldn’t come with crippling costs. Inground pool covers from Anchor Industries could provide significant savings over the lifetime of owning a pool.
7: Long-Term Cost Savings
Cost savings will be apparent as you use less energy to clean your pool. You will also save money from fewer chemical treatments. In the long term, you will also find that pump and filter maintenance requirements are reduced, so you’ll spend less on pool service. With a cover you will block out a significant amount of UV radiation, so the interior finishing of your pool will last longer without losing its color. This is yet another way that custom pool covers can save you money.
8: Improved Safety Around Your Pool
Finally, we come to one of the most important reasons to invest in a high-quality pool cover. As fun as pools are, they can also be dangerous if they aren’t properly cared for. Without a cover, accidental entry to your pool will become a real risk. Having a pet or child drown in a pool is a nightmare scenario that no family should ever have to deal with. With a long-lasting solid or mesh pool cover, an accidental entry can be eliminated. IF you want to have complete peace of mind whether you are at home or away, then a pool cover is an essential safety feature.
There’s no good reason not to invest in high-quality mesh or clear swimming pool covers from Anchor Industries. Maintenance requirements will be significantly reduced, you’ll save money, your pool will be cleaner, and it will be safer at any time of the year. If you want to get the most from your pool then keeping it covered needs to be a top priority.
