What Are the Different Kinds of Pool Covers to Choose From?

A swimming pool is covered by one of the pool covers called a saftey cover.

Owning a swimming pool brings an ode of joy to your backyard, so of course you want to protect it. One of the easiest and most effective ways to do this is by using a pool cover. Pool covers not only keep your pool clean, but they also help to maintain the temperature and reduce evaporation. However, with so many different kinds of covers available, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. At Goodall, we want to customize your pool ownership experience and cater to what works best for you and your family. Let’s talk about the different kinds of pool covers available and the amazing benefits they offer. We’ll sort them by winter covers and in-season covers.

Winter Covers

Keep Wear and Tear at Bay with a Winter Pool Cover

As the name suggests, winter pool covers are designed for use during the winter months when your pool is not in use. These covers are made from heavy-duty material, such as polyethylene or PVC, and are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. They are also designed to prevent leaves, dirt, and debris from entering the pool, keeping it clean and well-maintained.

Safety Is Always First with Safety Pool Covers

Safety pool covers are designed to prevent accidents from occurring. These winter covers are made from heavy-duty materials and are designed to be strong enough to support the weight of a person or pet and come in a variety of options like solid vinyl or mesh.

Mesh safety covers are designed to keep debris and most sunlight out of your pool while allowing water to pass through. These options are made from a woven material that allows rainwater and snow to pass through while keeping leaves, dirt, and debris out of your swimming area. 

In-Season Covers

Solar Covers: An Energy-Efficient Way to Warm Your Pool

A solar pool cover is designed to heat your pool using the power of the sun. These covers are made from a thin layer of plastic or vinyl and are designed to float on top of the water. They work by trapping the sun’s heat and transferring it to the water, which helps to increase the water temperature. Solar covers are an excellent choice for those who want to extend their swimming season and save money on heating costs.

Automatic Pool Covers: Easy and Effective

Automatic covers are designed to make covering and uncovering your pool easy. These covers are made from a durable material, such as vinyl, and are designed to be motorized. They are operated using a remote control and can be opened or closed with the touch of a button. You can open or close your pool with the touch of a button. There are many different kinds of pool covers available. And, each works to make your pool ownership experience easier than ever.
