Do I Need a Swimming Pool Safety Cover?


Swimming pool covers are your first line of defence against the outside world and potential pool contaminants. Among all the cover types, you might decide a safety pool cover is the best choice – they offer several benefits, including helping:

  • - Keep out debris and help prevent algae growth.
  • - Conserve heat and help retain chemicals by preventing evaporation.
  • - Protect pets and people from falling into the water, ensuring the utmost levels of safety.

If you are concerned about anyone accidentally falling into your pool, a safety cover (whether you opt for an automatic or a manual one) will likely be your number one pool cover choice.

If you feel you don’t need additional safety measures, you may not require a safety pool cover. When your pool’s in use, you might prefer to use a solar swimming pool cover, which will also protect your pool from debris and offer further heat retention properties.

In the off-season, you’ll likely consider a winter swimming pool cover, as these can better protect your pool against harsher weather.
