Buying Tips for Swimming Pool Covers  

by Pool Builders on 09-10-2006 in Articles

Swimming pool covers are offered in different shapes, sizes, colors and purposes. A solar cover will heat your pool and keep it protected. If safety is your most important concern, you can find safety covers that cover your pool and keep people and pets out of it.

For both in ground pools and above ground pools, you can get a cover to keep your pool protected from people, pets and the severe winter weather.

When buying a swimming pool cover, there are some things that you should take into account. The first thing is to look for a cover that is strong and sturdy. The cover you choose should keep your pool clean from debris, but also provide safety for people who unintentionally step out on to it. The cover must be strong enough to prevent people from drowning and also sturdy enough to keep debris from getting access to the water.

The cover you choose should be acceptable with both local and state regulations. There are some areas that require a certain type or size cover. You can check with local police force. You should always check before you purchase a pool cover, in the event that what you are interested in isn't allowed.

In addition, you should always ensure that the cover comes with a warranty. The majority of swimming pool covers include a warranty of two years or even more. A warranty should also cover all types of defects. For this reason, buy a cover for your pool from a company that you know stands behind what they sell.

When buying a cover, make sure that your cover offers a good overlap length; a size that is a bit larger than the dimensions of your pool. This will give you more than enough room to anchor your cover down to the swimming pool. You can stretch your cover out over your pool, and still have plenty of room left to make sure that it fits tight.

When you buy the cover, make sure that it includes everything you need to start using it right away. Depending on the type you choose, you will get either straps or anchors. You should make sure that there was no spillage with the cover. The last thing you want is to buy a cover that is missing vital components that you need to use the cover.

Swimming pool covers are essential to keeping your pool safe and clean, and should always be used if you own a swimming pool.
