Automatic Pool Covers

An Essential Piece of Pool Equipment

The best way to maximise the benefits that your pool provides, minimise the running costs and the risk of drowing (by children, pets, stray animals and careless people) is to install an automatic floating cover.

They are available for domestic indoor and outdoor pools and can be mounted on an above ground axle at one end of the pool or an a submerged axle that lies in a protected box below the water surface.

The above ground models are not attractive in appearance and are visually intrusive but they cost about half that of a submerged model.

The submerged models cannot be seen but they also reduce the length of the usable pool by about 1 metre.

The Benefits

The benefits that these covers provide include:

  1. The highest degree of safety possible because the actual pool surface is covered so that if anyone falls onto they will get wet hands and feet and that is all.
  2. Conservation of water and energy by reducing evaporation to virtually zero when the cover is in place, thus substantially reducing the water supply and heating costs.
  3. Maintenance of a constant water temperature over night and during cold periods so that the pool is immediately available for use on a 24/7 basis.
  4. Maintenance of a much cleaner more attractive pool with much healthier water, that also saves a substantial period of time and effort.
  5. The insulation qualities of the cover stop the pool water from rising above the critical algae blooming temperature (12-15°C) and hence avoids algae blooms in warm winter periods when the pool is not in use.
