COVER POOLS – THE ULTIMATE POOL COVER

Since the early years of backyard swimming pools, pool covers were little more than large, heavy pieces of canvas that had to be held down with heavy sandbags. They were such a nuisance to maneuver, most pool owners simply didn’t bother. In 1960, Joe Lamb, the founder of Cover-Pools, invented an automatic pool cover—a cover that could be used on a daily basis and offer safety, maintenance, and heat-saving benefits to the swimming pool owner.

Every pool is different. Cover Pools makes your cover system to your custom specifications and offers a wealth of options to blend your cover system into your outdoor living area. You choose your unique combination of safety, convenience, value, and beauty.  With knowledgable dealers in fifty states and over fifty countries, Cover-Pools covers the world and they hold annual APSP-accredited seminars for intensive dealer training and also provides in-field dealer support.  To their design team, it’s the little things that make Cover-Pools systems so reliable. Always on the leading edge of innovation, Cover Pools engineers use the latest technology to ensure you receive The World’s Finest Pool Cover.

SAFETY

Cover-Pools always encourages developing a comprehensive plan when considering swimming pool safety. Because a Cover-Pools pool cover is convenient and easy to use, it is an essential component of any pool safety plan.  In under a minute, the automatic cover slides across the pool, creating a life-saving safety barrier between a child and the pool water. The cover makes it easy to maintain a secure, covered pool whenever the pool is not being used.

CONVENIENCE

Ready to hop in the pool? In under a minute, a Cover-Pools pool cover glides across the pool to reveal your refreshing water.  A Cover-Pools automatic safety cover is convenient for everyday use. Whenever you’re not swimming, the pool can be covered to keep it safe and clean.  The cover keeps dirt and debris out of the pool, reducing cleaning and maintenance costs and wear on pool filtration systems. This means you can spend more time enjoying your pool and less time working on it.

EASY MAINTENANCE

With a Cover-Pools safety cover, you can keep your pool covered whenever you’re not swimming.  The cover keeps dirt and debris out of the pool, reducing cleaning and maintenance costs and wear on pool filtration systems. This means you can spend more time enjoying your pool and less time working on it.

WATER CONSERVATION

Water evaporates from pools in varying degrees depending on many factors, including air temperature, water temperature, humidity, heat, shade in the pool area, wind, and pool turbulence.  An uncovered, 16-by-36 foot pool can lose as much as 180 gallons of water a week or 720 gallons of water a month to evaporation. That evaporating water also takes expensive heat and chemicals with it.  Around the world, Cover-Pools pool covers preserve hundreds of millions of gallons of heated and balanced pool water each year — keeping the water in the pool for fun, exercise, and relaxation.   Cover-Pools pool covers also prevent evaporation on indoor pools. In most cases,  the cover can eliminate the need for expensive dehumidification systems. This can add up to a significant savings, simply by adding a pool cover as a vapor barrier.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Would you want to use energy to heat your house if you didn’t have a roof? The heat would be wasted, much in the way an uncovered pool wastes heat through water evaporation.    The U.S. Department of Energy has stated that a pool cover is the single best way to reduce heat loss on a pool. By limiting unnecessary evaporation, you’ll save energy and still be able to enjoy swimming in a warm pool.  Opening and closing a Cover-Pools pool cover is easy enough that you can cover your pool whenever you’re not actively using it — it’s the convenient way to make your pool more energy efficient AND safer.  Cover-Pools pool covers are a perfect complement to other energy-efficient pool equipment such as variable-speed heat pumps and heat exchangers. They bring heat to the pool more effectively, then the cover keeps that heat from escaping.   Pool covers act as a passive solar collector by capturing the sun’s radiant heat. When a pool is covered, there can be a solar heat gain up to 10 to 15 degrees, making it less expensive to heat the pool.   A pool cover will help keep your pool warm when the air temperature cools off at night. This dramatically cuts down on heating costs and can extend your swimming season by several months.   By sealing off the pool and reducing heat evaporation, a
Cover-Pools cover reduces heating costs up to 85%.

THREE COVERS IN ONE

Instead of bothering with multiple covers that are cumbersome, bulky, require a lot of effort, or are unsafe, simply use a Cover-Pools cover for year-round pool protection. The multi-tasking workhorse of a cover acts as a safety cover, a solar cover, and a winter cover, all combined into one easy-to-use system.    Cover-Pools pool covers are designed to be used every day during the swimming season, giving you a safer pool and peace of mind at the touch of a button. In under a minute your pool is easily covered or uncovered.  A pool cover acts as a passive solar collector by capturing the sun’s radiant heat. When a pool is covered, there can be a solar heat gain up to 10 to 15 degrees, making it less expensive to heat the pool. A Cover-Pools cover also keeps that heat in when the air temperature drops. It replaces the need for a solar blanket or bubble cover (which typically are used only for heat gain and retention and are not safe to step on).   At the end of the swimming season, leave the pool filled with water and keep the cover on until it’s warm again. The Cover-Pools cover acts as a winter cover to protect your pool during the off season. It replaces the need for a winter cover that uses sandbags to keep the fabric in place (again, not safe to step on) or an anchored winter safety cover.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

By saving heat, chemicals, cleaning and extending equipment life, your Save-T cover quickly pays for itself. You can save up to 70% on operating costs–a great return on your investment.  The Save-T cover acts as a passive solar heater by capturing the sun’s radiant heat. It reduces heat evaporation, keeping the pool warm when the air temperature cools off at night. This dramatically cuts down on heating costs while extending your swimming season.   By reducing evaporation, your Save-T pool cover cuts water loss and reduces the use of chemicals. On indoor pools, your cover prevents evaporation, and in most cases, can eliminate the need for expensive dehumidification systems.   Keep dirt, leaves and debris out by simply keeping your pool covered. The Save-T pool cover reduces maintenance costs and keeps your pool cleaner.
