An uncovered pool’s water is likely to lose heat and become cold, making it difficult to use. As a result, you must spend money on a heater to warm the water. There are 801,000 residential pools in Texas, as reported by Pool Research. Imagine how much of an impact it would have on the environment if everyone started to use heating sources. So why splurge on expensive machines when we can simply cover our pool and be environmentally responsible?
Swimming pool covers help minimize heat costs by trapping heat in the water and reducing the amount of heat loss to the surrounding air. The cover acts as an insulating barrier, preventing heat from escaping and preserving the warmth of the water. Typically, 50-75% of heat is retained by a pool cover. It means there won’t be as much need to reheat and maintain desired water temperature, which will save energy and money.
