No doubt, it’s fun having a swimming pool at your own backyard. But it’s work, too – you must keep the water clean and maintain the equipment. However, getting pool covers in Stockton will keep your pool clean. Not only that – it will also help save water, cut down on energy, maintenance, and chemical costs, save you time, and save lives.
One concern for pool owners is evaporation, especially if they live in hot and arid regions. Uncovered pools can lose up to a thousand gallons every year of water from evaporation. If you own an 18 x 36-foot pool and leave it uncovered, it can lose about an inch of water per week during the hot summer months. So, it’s about 7,000 gallons of water lost every year when the pool is not covered.
If installed properly and used consistently, a pool cover can reduce evaporation and help the pool water retain heat. Whether you use a cover for your outdoor and indoor pool, it can prevent up to 95% of pool water evaporation.
Taking proper steps to keep the water clean will allow you to enjoy your swimming pool a lot more. Covering your pool will keep falling leaves and debris out, prevent algae from growing in the pool, and retain the chemicals that keep your pool water clean.
Swimming pools can have a powerful effect on younger children, whether it’s swimming time or not. The glistening blue waters appear especially inviting to an active toddler or curious preschooler. Children can slip away from the watchful eyes of adults, even in seconds. Pools are called an attractive nuisance.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), children ages one to four have the highest drowning rates. Next to birth defects and congenital anomalies, drowning is responsible for more deaths among children in the same age range.
In addition, there have been several fatal unintentional drowning incidents among non-swimmers.
For many pool owners, especially families with younger children, pets, and non-swimmers, the main reason why they install covers is to keep them out of the pool when it’s not in use.
While pool fences and alarms are helpful, pool covers are still the most effective method to prevent accidental drowning. Safety pool covers (especially solid ones) are the best option if your concern is security. To make sure that what you’re getting is a quality safety pool cover, you must purchase them from a company that is reputable and has considerable experience in the industry – such as Pool Covers, Inc.
Since 1984, Pool Covers, Inc. offers both manual and automatic safety pool covers. We also install covers on both existing and new/remodeled pools as well as spas. Our pool covers are also available in different colors – choose the one that will go best with your pool environment.
Among others, the best benefits that our pool covers provide include water conservation and safety. Our swimming pool covers are classified as an “isolation” barrier (unlike other barrier methods such as fences) because they isolate the pool water from the pool deck and its surroundings. Isolating the water, swimming pool covers remove the temptation for children who, with other safety features, can still see the water.
Automatic pool covers are the best safety pool cover option. They cannot be climbed over or under to get to the water. You have control over who gets into your pool and when.
With our ASTM-certified safety covers installed on your pools, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be safe even when you’re not around. Pool Covers in Stockton will be your best investment when it comes to conserving pool water and protecting your loved ones from drowning accidents.
