BENEFITS OF OWNING AN AUTO POOL COVER
Benefit 1: Backyard Safety For Your Children and Pets
Keeping your loved ones safe is important, especially when you have a pool in your backyard. One great way to do this is by installing an automatic pool cover.
Our Coverstar covers are strong and durable, making them a great barrier to keep kids, elderly, and pets away from the pool when it’s not in use. Not only will it give you peace of mind, but our safety pool covers an extra layer of protection when there’s no adult around to supervise. So, if you want to keep your pool safe and secure, consider getting a retractable pool cover.
All our safety pool covers are specifically designed to bear weight and must meet the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM F1346-91 standard, which requires a minimum weight capacity of 485 kg (1,070 lbs) to protect people and pets from accidental falls into the pool. Our name brand covers can hold up to 2000 lbs.
Get peace of mind whenever your pool is open and in use, especially important if you have young children with access to your backyard or when they are near the pool for any period without an adult around.
Benefit 2: A Clean, Attractive Pool With Low Maintenance
An automatic pool cover is a great way to keep your pool clean and safe. The more the pool is covered, the less dirt and debris will get in the water, resulting in less time and effort needed for cleaning. With an automatic pool cover, you can also run your pool pump and filter less, saving energy and extending their lifespan. Additionally, automatic pool covers are durable and can even support 2 adults and a child at once, offering an extra layer of protection for children and pets. For added safety, choose a cover model with an on/off function that only works with a key.
Benefit 3: Save Water, Use Less Chemicals
Want to keep your pool water from evaporating? An automatic pool cover is the way to go! According to a study by the U.S. Department of Energy, evaporation can cause up to 70% of water loss in pools. An automatic pool cover can help reduce evaporation by blocking the heat from the sun and physically blocking wind that would otherwise hit the pool surface. Even if the air outside is dry, a cover can help reduce water loss. So, if you want to keep your pool water at the right level, consider one of our automatic pool covers.
Using a well-fitted automatic pool cover can make a huge difference. One study suggests that by using one, you can cut water loss as much as 95 percent.
Besides saving water, having a motorized pool cover over your pool means no sun exposure degrading the chlorine in your pool so you don’t need to replenish it as often.
Benefit 4: Save Energy & Operating Costs
An automatic pool cover can help extend your backyard swimming season while also saving you money. It can save you extra energy costs when it’s chilly outside by preserving more of the warmth generated by your heater. A cover can significantly cut evaporation, which is the single biggest cause of energy loss.
By cutting evaporation, it can lower pool heating costs by up to 70% and overall electricity costs by up to 50% lower.
Plus, by keeping your pool cleaner, you’ll need to run your pool cleaner for less time, saving energy. And cleaner water means shorter filtration run times, so your pump won’t have to operate as many hours per day. So, an automatic pool cover not only keeps your pool clean and safe but also saves you money on energy costs.
Benefit 5: Fast, Convenient & Consistent
An automatic pool cover is the ultimate in convenience. Unlike traditional mesh and solid tie-down pool covers, automatic pool covers don’t require any manual labor to roll out and put on your pool, or to remove from your pool.
They don’t need to be tied or anchored down around your deck. With an automatic pool cover, you just flip a switch and watch as it seals your pool and when you are ready to use your pool, it conveniently puts itself away.
This ease of use ensures that you will use it regularly and spend more time enjoying your pool. Why not get the most out of your pool investment with an automatic pool cover? Use our quote form below and a local Kelowna pool cover installer will get back to you shortly!
