Why You Need a Pool Cover

pool cover safety-why is a walk on pool cover importantOne of the options for any pool is to have a cover that will help to protect it. Many people consider this to be an option that is left on the table but in reality, you need to consider all of the benefits that are associated with having a cover. In doing so, it will help you to see the reasons why a pool cover should not really be optional, especially because of safety reasons which will become obvious in the course of this article. At Medallion Pools, we care about you and your family and want to ensure that they are safe.

When most people think about pool covers, they think about keeping debris out of the pool. That certainly is one of the many benefits of having a cover, and it can help to save you time because you're not constantly skimming the pool when you want to use it. In addition, the debris that is in the pool could end up in the pump and this could cause damage to the pump in certain circumstances. Obviously, having a cover is not only going to help to keep your pool clean and pristine, it may also help to lengthen the life of the equipment and save you money in the long run.

Another benefit to having a cover is the safety that it provides for your family. Many people are concerned over the possibility of children getting into the pool and not being discovered until it is too late. This is a serious problem and it occurs all too frequently in the Metroplex, as well as in other areas around the country. If you have children or grandchildren or if you have young children that regularly play in the neighborhood, you should consider getting a pool cover. This is a serious safety issue and it is one that can have extremely dire consequences, if you are not protected. A pool cover can offer you a degree of protection that is not available from a fence.

If you have any questions about pool covers or the installation of a pool, you can contact us for more information. You might be surprised with the number of cover options that are available, and we can discuss those options with you before the installation takes place. In some cases, you may find that you benefit from having an automatic cover, so that you can simply flip a switch and the cover will either be retracted or expanded. This can be a very convenient choice and allows you to maximize the safety of your pool, along with that convenience.

Other Pool Options and Outdoor Living Choices

One other factor that may be considered with the pool cover is the potential heat that is available from it. If you like to use your pool in the cooler months, you may find that you are spending a considerable amount of money on heating the water. A cover for a swimming pool is like a solar blanket and when you use the right type of cover, it may be able to heat your pool as much as 10°F above the typical temperature. This will result in a substantial savings, because you do not need to run your pool heater as frequently.

At Medallion Pools, we want you to be perfectly happy with your outdoor living space. That is why we offer a variety of options to our customers, including customized outdoor living and pool options which help to upgrade it to your satisfaction. Contact us today for more information as to how we can assist you in having an outdoor living environment that is perfect for your family.
