What Is An Electric Pool Cover?

An electric pool cover, also known as an automatic pool cover, is a type of pool cover that is designed to be opened and closed automatically at the touch of a button. This is in contrast to manual pool covers, which require manual effort to open and close.

Electric pool covers typically consist of a motorized system that is connected to a track or reel that runs along the length of the pool. When the cover is not in use, it can be retracted into a compact housing unit at one end of the pool. When it is time to cover the pool, the motorized system unrolls the cover along the track and over the surface of the water.

Electric pool covers offer a number of benefits compared to manual pool covers. For one, they are much easier to use – you don’t have to strain yourself lifting and maneuvering a heavy cover over the pool. Additionally, electric pool covers are generally more secure than manual covers, as they can be locked in place to prevent unauthorized access to the pool.

Another advantage of electric pool covers is that they can help to reduce energy costs associated with heating and maintaining a pool. By covering the pool when it is not in use, you can help to prevent heat loss and evaporation, which can lead to significant energy savings over time.

Overall, electric pool covers are a convenient and practical option for anyone looking to protect their pool and make maintenance easier.
