Comparing Pool Covers for Your Needs

A home swimming pool is one of life’s greatest luxuries, making summertime more fun for friends and family. Strong bonds and lasting memories are formed in and around your pool.

Of course, there will be times of the year when your pool isn’t used, which is when swimming pool covers become necessary. With a cover you can keep your pool safe while also preventing algae growth and debris buildup.

Both mesh and solid pool covers can be ideal in the right conditions. Take a look at the benefits of both to find out which would be perfect for you.

The Benefits of Mesh Swimming Pool Safety Covers

Mesh covers are made with a custom weave fabric that can block out most UV light, greatly reducing algae growth when your pool isn’t in use. They protect against accidental entry and can be easily folded and stored during the swimming season.

Mesh swimming pool safety covers will protect against solid debris like leaves and sticks, although they can let some fine debris like dirt and dust into your pool.

The biggest advantage of a mesh cover is that it will be self-draining. Water will fall through the cover, eliminating the need for a submersible pump on top. This does mean that there will be some extra cleaning needed when you use your pool again, but for many owners, this is more desirable than having to use and maintain a pump.

Best of all, mesh covers often last longer than solid covers, with most owners getting between 12 and 15 years of a lifetime from a high-quality cover. When you choose Anchor Industries mesh covers, you will enjoy peace of mind with a limited 12-year warranty.

Solid Anchor Industries Pool Covers

If you want complete protection from UV light and rain, a solid cover will be your best option. These covers typically last around 10 years and come with a higher cost when compared to mesh swimming pool safety covers.

With complete UV protection, you could virtually eliminate algae growth when you aren’t using your pool. A solid cover also blocks all debris, dirt, and dust. This results in a cleaner pool that will require less maintenance throughout the year. Cost savings could be significant, depending on the size of your pool and how often you use it. For this reason, many homeowners choose a solid cover, despite the higher price.

Keep in mind that if you do use a solid cover, you will need to use a submersible pump on the top side to remove any rainwater that collects on top. Pumps can last up to five years before requiring maintenance or replacement.

Replacing Pool Covers the Simple Way
