Why Investing in an Automatic Pool Cover is Worth It

Automatic pool covers offer a range of cost-saving benefits that can pay for themselves in as little as two or three years. They provide the same advantages as manual pool covers, but with the added convenience of being able to open and close them with the push of a button. The installation of an automatic pool cover requires additional parts and labor, making it a more expensive option than manual covers. However, if you have the funds available, it can be a worthwhile investment.

Automatic pool covers are not only convenient, but they also provide an extra layer of safety and security for your pool. They reduce surface heat loss during the night, keeping the water warmer than it would be without a cover. In some areas, it is legally required to have a certain type of barrier fence or an automatic pool cover. For indoor pools, a pool cover also means that the dehumidifier doesn't have to work as hard.

The fabric used for automatic pool covers comes in a variety of colors so you can choose one that helps it blend in with the surrounding pool landscape. If you are looking for an even cheaper option, you can use a conventional solar cover at the beginning and end of the swimming season (when using the heater), then store it during the hot summer months and use a product like Liquid Solar or Heatsavr.

Automatic pool covers offer excellent cost-saving benefits that can make them worth the investment. They provide an extra layer of safety and security for your pool, reduce surface heat loss during the night, and can even be legally required in some areas. If you have the funds available, an automatic pool cover can be a great addition to your swimming area.
