Automatic covers can be installed on a wide range of pools of varying shapes and sizes. Regardless of the automatic cover system type that is used, whether the tracks or mechanism are under grade or on top of the pool deck, there are a number of benefits that a homeowner will gain by adding an automatic pool cover to their swimming pool.
SafetyThe first is Safety. Although an automatic cover doesn’t replace the need for adult supervision, it does give peace of mind knowing that there is another layer of protection between your loved ones and your swimming pool. Check to make sure your automatic cover system meets the safety standards that are outlined in ASTM Standard F1346-91.
SavingsThe second benefit is Savings. Pool owners can see dramatic savings in the operating costs of their pool in the following areas by adding an automatic cover to their pool.
ConvenienceThe third benefit is convenience. When closed, an automatic pool cover will keep the pool much cleaner. This will give pool owners more time to enjoy the pool and less time cleaning and maintaining it. After all, the pool was built to be enjoyed.
