A swimming pool cover can save you up to 70% on heat, water, chemicals, equipment, cleaning, and other operating costs for your pool. It reduces heating costs and extends your swimming season with the best way to safeguard your friends and family and to protect your investment for fun and enjoyment. A pool without a pool cover is like a house without a roof.

Swimming pools lose energy in a variety of ways, but evaporation is by far the largest source of energy loss. Evaporating water requires tremendous amounts of energy. It only takes one Btu (British thermal unit) to raise 1 pound of water 1 degree, but each pound of 80 degree Farenheight water that evaporates takes a whopping 1,048 Btu of heat out of the pool.
The evaporation rate from an outdoor pool varies depending on the pool's temperature, air temperature and humidity, and the wind speed at the pool surface. The higher the pool temperature and wind speed and the lower the humidity, the greater the evaporation rate. They even have need of room ventilation to control indoor humidity caused by the large amount of evaporation. The ventilated air also must be conditioned, which adds to the energy costs.
Pool covers lessen evaporation from both outdoor and indoor pools. Covering a pool when it is not in use is the single most effective means of reducing pool heating costs. Savings of 50%–70% are possible.
Pool covers on indoor pools not only can reduce evaporation but also the need to ventilate indoor air and replace it with unconditioned outdoor air. You can also shut off exhaust fans when an indoor pool is covered, which conserves even more energy. Pool covers should be used during your swimming season. If you use your pool during the daytime, lift-off the cover just before swimming and put back the cover as soon as you are done using the pool.
If you use your pool only at night, the use of a pool cover will depend on whether the evaporation and other losses disallowed by the cover exceed. The solar gain reduces caused by the cover. The type of cover and the climate affects this balance. In dry and or windy conditions, the evaporation rate of the pool increases. Therefore, it is generally favourable to have a transparent or bubble cover on during daylight hours. In warm, moist conditions, the evaporation rate decreases. In this case, it may be more favourable to leave the cover off during the daytime.send enquiry
