5 Tips On How To Choose The Right Swimming Pool Cover


5 Tips for Choosing the Best Inground Winter Pool Covers

The best inground pool cover for your pool will fulfill a variety of roles, such as creating a safety barrier to protect your loved ones and reducing pool maintenance. There are several types of pool covers available, each with its own advantages and primary uses. Follow these tips by All-Safe to find the best winter pool cover for your inground pool.

1 Make Functionality a Priority

The first question to ask when looking at pool covers is what will its primary purpose be? If you have young children at home, safety should be a top concern. In that case, mesh pool covers are some of the best inground pool covers to go for, as they are sturdy enough to prevent accidental drownings.

For those who are not as concerned with child safety and care more about keeping out debris, leaf pool covers may be the best for your pool, as they are designed to keep leaves and debris out of your pool. Leaf covers, as well as evaporation pool covers, are great for reducing overall pool maintenance; however, they are not safety barriers and other pool safety accessories should be installed with them.

Automatic pool covers may be the best inground pool cover for you, as their benefit extends to all of the above.

2 Consider Climate

The climate in your area is crucial to consider. Many pool owners live in areas with harsh winter conditions, which is why investing in the best winter pool cover available is the optimal choice. These covers are made of sturdy mesh material reinforced with durable straps and anchors along the pool edges.

3 Invest in a Warranty Period

Even the best inground pool covers aren’t completely indestructible. Make sure to purchase a pool cover from a manufacturer who offers a reliable warranty. Invest only in trustworthy brands that provide specific coverage and won’t alter those terms if damage occurs or if defective issues are found.

4 The Pool Cover Should Match the Pool Size

Your pool cover should be well-fitting to be most effective. All-Safe pool covers can be customized to fit any size or shape, from small single-level rectangular pools to large freeform pools with elevation changes.

When working with your pool cover dealer, make sure they account for anchoring the pool cover on all sides of the pool. This cost will depend on the size and layout of your pool and the type of pool cover.

5 Consider Your Pool Type

Finding the best winter pool cover begins with understanding what your pool needs. There are two types of swimming pools: In-ground and above-ground. In-ground pools use pool covers that attach to anchors on the sides of the pool. Above-ground pools are purchased separately and no construction is necessary. They use winches to fasten their cover.

Call An Expert

When undertaking new pool projects, make sure to consult a professional contractor or pool fence company for insight into the best inground pool cover for you. Going to a professional when it’s time to find and install the best inground pool cover helps minimize your liability and make a more informed decision.

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.
