In this article, the authors present the design and cost analysis of an automation system for swimming pools in South Africa. Thanks to the use of completely prefabricated components that require very little installation time, it is easy and quick to install a pool cover. In addition, pool covers can improve water hygiene and provide an overall safer environment for end users and operators. Pool covers are essential accessories for all pool operators, especially in real estate and hotel spaces.
Pool covers keep water at the desired temperature, making it more comfortable for users and easier to trust it. In swimming pool filtration systems, a backwash valve is used to reverse the flow of water and remove dirt and debris from the filter. The pool check valve may need to be replaced when a pool check valve fails, but simple maintenance may be sufficient. Thanks to their responsible, efficient, hygienic and safety benefits, pool covers are a must-have item for pool operators.
The pool cover is a solution designed to prevent heat loss and evaporation of pool water, and also to keep the water warm when the installation is not in use. Using pool covers allows operators to ensure the safety and hygiene of their pool at all times of the year, regardless of how much the pool is used. For example, the use of an indoor pool cover prevents condensation in an enclosed space and thus prevents any damage to surrounding equipment and materials. Overhead pool covers with protective housing can be improved with a bench that covers the mechanical installation and provides a high-quality finish.
Automatic pool covers, for example, meet the requirements of the French standard NF P90 308 and guarantee maximum user safety. You will be able to take advantage of the pool for other economically profitable activities; therefore, this could double the profitability of your pool and the surrounding space. Having the motor in a dry well makes it more accessible, making it ideal for large pools under construction that need a large cover. The motor will be placed in a separate sunken compartment and both the roller shaft and the cover will be housed at one end inside the pool itself.
With the right pool cover, the pool area will benefit from ideal protection, while end users will also have multiple advantages.
