The use of a winter cover has been debated for years. Should you cover your swimming pool during the winter months or not? We recommend you invest in a winter cover for your swimming pool as it is important for a variety of reasons:
- It protects the pool from any debris; leaves, twigs, and dirt from entering. This not only keeps the pool cleaner, but it also prevents any tears in a vinyl lined pool from happening during a winter storm.
- Decreases algae growth. Algae thrive in stagnant water, but a winter cover can reduce the amount of algae growth as it prevents the buildup of organic material that can lead to a bloom. It also keeps the sunlight out which will delay the growth of algae, providing you closed the pool clean and clear.
- Increases safety. When you invest in a safety cover for your pool you have peace of mind that children and pets are being protected from accidentally entering the water.
For above ground pools we recommend using an Enviromesh winter cover.
For inground pools we recommend a safety cover be used.
