Your pool is fairly exposed throughout the year unless you cover it while it’s not in use. An uncovered pool can lead to floating insects and debris, natural water evaporation, and heat loss over time. We at All Seasons Pools often recommend automated pool covers to provide the necessary protection against such exposure to the elements, so you don’t have to deal with the aftermath later.
Here are three benefits of automated pool covers to help you decide if installing one might be right for you:
- Prevent water evaporation: If you remember the key phases of the water cycle, you’ll remember that one significant part is evaporation, and the water in your pool is not immune from this process. As the sun shines on your pool over time, the water will slowly evaporate, affecting the water levels in your pool. Automated pool covers can help protect your pool from the sun and prevent water evaporation.
- Reduce heat loss: If you have a heated pool, your pool heater likely works hard to keep your pool at a warm and comfortable temperature for you to enjoy any time you go for a swim. An automated pool cover can help reduce the amount of heat that is lost while you’re not swimming, so your heater doesn’t have to work as hard.
- Conserve energy: This benefit is true both for saving energy for yourself and for the environment. Automated pool covers can help keep your pool cleaner and free of unwelcome insects and debris, so you don’t have to spend as much personal energy on skimming and cleaning your pool. This also means less work for your pool pump and filter, meaning that less energy will be spent there as well. More energy efficiency for your pool will also mean lower energy bills to pay each month.
