Do I need a swimming pool cover for my pool?

Many homeowners ask us, “are pool covers worth it?” No matter what type of pool you have (or how often you use it), we always recommend a pool cover because of the many benefits they provide. While accidents can still happen around a pool, with proper installation and maintenance, a swimming pool protection cover can help to reduce accidents and their severity. A pool cover also:

  • Prevents debris from falling into the water during the winter
  • Shields your pool in cold or inclement weather
  • Lowers your insurance costs
  • Provides a priceless sense of security knowing your children, grandchildren, and pets are protected from accidentally entering your pool area unsupervised.

Like swimming pools, backyard pool covers come in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and materials, from manually installed seasonal solid and mesh safety covers to high-tech automatic models. Whether you need to replace a damaged or worn-out pool cover, or this is your first time purchasing a cover, Dolphin Pool Service, LLC can provide guidance and support to help you find durable, dependable products that are compatible with your pool. Most popular are mesh and solid winter safety covers.

Solid safety covers

  • Solid safety covers prevent sunlight, dirt & fine particles from entering the pool while covered
  • Solid safety cover material provides extra protection from tree branches or heavy animals
  • Water is kept off the cover’s surface through use of a cover pump, or mesh drain panels
  • A solid safety cover helps keep your pool water clean over the winter by preventing the accumulation of silt & fine debris in the water
  • Solid safety pool covers block sunlight entirely, which prevents algae growth in the pool water
  • Solid safety cover pool openings are easier – the pool will be as clean as the day you closed it
  • Prevent water balance fluctuations and algae growth; blocking acid rain, pollen and phosphates from entering

Mesh safety covers

  • Mesh safety covers prevent leaves and debris from entering the pool but allow rainwater to pass through
  • Mesh safety covers are made from a lightweight yet strong weave of materials
  • No puddles of standing water will form on top of a mesh Safety Cover
  • Available in several colors to match your mood or decor
  • Mesh safety cover material is 4lbs per 100 sq. ft., which makes a mesh safety cover easier to install, remove & store
  • Because water can pass through the material of a mesh Safety Cover, the cover is not weighed down by standing water
  • When you open your pool in the spring, your pool water should be mostly clean – with just fine particles on the floor
  • Save on water resources with a mesh Safety Cover – no need to re-fill next spring
  • Eliminates the need for a cover pump with a mesh Safety Cover
  • Because water passes through a mesh Safety Cover, it dries quickly – allowing leaves & debris to blow away
