Types of Covers
The solid vinyl covers are considered a safety cover when installed properly; meaning in the case of an emergency the cover could be walked on. They hold enormous amounts of weight (think of a big water bed), can reduce heating costs, cleaning costs and chemical loss when in use.
These covers come in two types of materials, mesh and solid vinyl. They are manually put on the pool and are anchored to the deck of the pool.
They are reasonably priced. They are primarily used on in ground pools but can also be used on above ground pools.
This is the most highly recommended type of pool cover system by professionals all across the board. The solid vinyl cover automatically slides on and off the pool with the turn of a key, or push of a button.
Automatic Safety Pool Covers are easy to get on and off making it the ideal cover for everyday use. They nearly eliminate evaporation and chemical loss when in use and keep the pool cleaner reducing cleaning costs. They also act as a solar cover helping to hold in the heat. Studies have shown the system to pay for itself in a few years from these savings. When closed they are locked, preventing unwanted entry. They hold enormous amounts of weight so if a person or animal were to fall on the cover it would hold them (again think water bed). This is why it is the safest, most efficient, and long term cost effective choice across the board.
