Using Pool Covers Adds Another
Layer of Protection

Pool covers, in my opinion,
should be required on any and all pools.
Some areas have already
started requiring pools be covered. In general, they are only
required for in ground pools because of the easy access provided to
them. However, it is just as important to have pool covers on small
and above ground pools as it is on in ground pools.
Pool covers offer a few different uses. First, they provide an
excellent way of keeping debris and dirt out of your pool water.
Pool covers catch debris and leave your pool clean and healthy. They
will also block the sun from the pool and keep rain or snow from
entering the pool, which will mean less maintenance on your part.
In addition to keeping the pool clean, pool covers offer a form of
security. Pool covers help in keeping children out of your pool when
there is no supervision. Pool covers come in a variety of shapes and
sizes, you will want to get a pool cover that will provide the type
of safety you want for your swimming pool.
Some pool covers are grounded in concrete, which will ensure that
animals and children cannot enter the pool. When I say grounded in
concrete, I am meaning that it is weighted by concrete. You are
ensuring a safe atmosphere
around your pool.
Pool covers can be made of mesh of vinyl, although in my personal
opinion vinyl is sturdier and doubles in keeping pool clean as well
as safety. Mesh covers still allow water to flow through, meaning
debris, and dirt can still get through to your pool water.
Pool covers come with a variety of different measures of removal.
Some require removal by hand and some come with a reel system
feature allowing for easy placement and removal. Others are
automated and some have to be hooked by anchors. Regardless of the
type, a pool cover is designed to be a barrier between the pool and
a person that resists unwanted entry of any kind. These together
with other security features such as removable stairs for above
ground pools, enclosed pools with security fences, and locked
gates will help in keeping your swimming pool area an enjoyable and
safe area for everyone.
