5 Factors for Choosing The Best Pool Covers

5 Factors for Choosing The Best Pool Safety Cover

Swimming pool covers are a must for every home with a pool. They help to provide safety for everyone when the pool not in use, especially your children. Some models can also help increase your pool’s heating efficiency and chemical retention. When you’re looking for the best pool covers for your swimming pool, you should consider these factors.

1. Purpose

Start with the purpose for which you need the pool cover. If you want to keep your children and pets safe, mesh safety covers are an excellent choice. If you don’t have children or pets, you may want to cover the pool to keep out the leaves and debris or for winterizing.

  • Mesh pool covers are ideal for improving safety to guard against accidental drowning. They can also be useful if you live in an area with high rainfall
  • A leaf pool cover is good to keep out leaves if your pool is surrounded by trees. However, it should be installed along with a pool net to provide safety.
  • Automatic pool covers are very safe, keep out debris, and can also help preserve your water temperature and chemistry.

2. The Climate in Your Area

The best Pool Covers will be ideally suited to the climate in your area. If you live in an area with harsh winters, mesh is an excellent option as a winter pool cover. If you live in an area with a warmer year-round climate, an automatic cover can help slow the rate of water evaporation from your pool.

3. The Type of Pool

The type of pool you have will also have to be considered to choose the best pool safety cover. You may have an above-ground or in-ground pool. While the first type requires winches to fasten the pool cover, the second one will need anchors for fastening the cover by the poolside.

If you have an inground pool, it’s best to consult an expert first who can help you customize a pool cover to the right fit.

4. Pool Size & Shape

Your pools shape, the elevation at different levels, and other water features will affect the price of the cover. Make sure to measure its total surface area and determine the shape as a consideration in choosing the best pool cover. The cost of the overall installation will depend on these 3 main factors:

  • The pool’s size and shape
  • The pool cover type
  • How complex the project is

5. Warranty

One indication of a quality pool cover is a long warranty period. It means the manufacturer is confident that their product will withstand wear and tear, as well as the elements for a longer period. A cheap pool cover with a poor warranty will often cost you more money in the long run. The best covers come at a price but they will more than pay for the initial investment in a few years.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
