If you saw our most recent pho­tos from our Demo Pool project (where you’ll be able to see our spa and swim­ming pool con­struc­tion and design on dis­play, just min­utes from Port­land) , you’ll notice our a-MA-zing pool cov­er. Now, there is no doubt that cov­ers help keep leaves, dust and oth­er debris out of your pool water, cut down on your pool main­te­nance and reduce clean up time.

But there are a lot more ben­e­fits… Check ‘em out:

  1. Low­er your heat­ing costs & extend your pool sea­son.  Your pool cov­er traps in the heat of the water cut­ting down on the ener­gy need­ed to keep your pool warm.  The U.S. Depart­ment of Ener­gy has report­ed that a pool cov­er is the sin­gle best way to reduce heat loss in a pool. By lim­it­ing unnec­es­sary evap­o­ra­tion, you’ll save ener­gy and still be able to enjoy swim­ming in a warm pool.
  2. Water con­ser­va­tion. An uncov­ered 16 x 36 foot pool can lose as many as 180 gal­lons of water per week. Cut­ting down on evap­o­ra­tion means less refill­ing and less reheat­ing. Be sure to ask about cov­ers when you’re talk­ing to pool con­trac­tors.
  3. Chem­i­cal reduc­tion. When water evap­o­rates, so do your pool chem­i­cals. Up to 1 gal­lon of chlo­rine can evap­o­rate in an uncov­ered pool in just two hours on a hot day.  Keep­ing your pool cov­ered when not in use keeps your treat­ed, bal­anced water in your pool longer.
  4. Reduced main­te­nance time and costs. Think about how reduc­ing debris can cut down on the main­te­nance need­ed for your fil­tra­tion sys­tem.
  5. Increased safe­ty. With a stur­dy  pool cov­er you can help pro­tect pets and chil­dren from falling into the water.

Not only that, auto­mat­ic cov­ers eas­i­ly slide over your pool in under a minute. The ease of use will assure that your pool is cov­ered when it should be.  Pro­tect your invest­ment, save mon­ey, save time and SWIM MORE.  Isn’t that what you real­ly want to do any­way?

Call us if you need any advice on the right pool cov­er for you–or if you have any ques­tions on pool or spa con­struc­tion in the Portland/Vancouver area.
