Keeping the pool cover in place will prevent anyone and pets from accidentally drowning if they fall into the pool. It also keeps debris out of your pool, reducing maintenance. Safety is the number one priority for all pool owners, and pool covers are a must-have accessory worth investing in.

If you are new to pool covers, you may not be sure which one is best for you. So how to choose? Here, we’ll give you the knowledge you need to determine which is the best pool cover for your needs.

Pool covers come in three types: mesh, solid, automatic, and bubble.

Mesh Safety Pool Cover

These can be custom fitted to the shape of your pool and come fitted with a range of anchor and spring attachments. The mesh pool cover can filter standing water so that there is no need to remove standing water from the pool cover. They are lighter in weight solid and automatic pool covers and can be easily folded and put away when not in use. It’s also simpler to install than a solid pool cover.

The mesh material of these pool covers lets in light, and sunlight also encourages algae to grow on the pool walls, which means you have to go the extra mile to get the pool ready for swimmers for swimming season.

Solid Safety Pool Cover

These can also be customized to the shape of your pool and secured to the deck with anchors and springs. They’re usually made of vinyl, which makes them heavier than mesh, but they can still be folded up for storage when not in use. The impermeable material prevents any debris, water or sunlight from entering the pool, which equates to less maintenance. However, any water that accumulates on the cover, as well as any leaves or debris, will need to be cleaned off. An automatic device can be placed on the lid, which opens and closes automatically.

Automatic Pool Cover

Available in solid, PC, this cover gives you the exact type of protection you need, while automatically deploying or retracting at the touch of a button. The cover can run on tracks that sit above the pool, or it can float on the pool.

Solar Bubble Pool Cover

Use a solar pool cover to heat your pool water and save money on utility bills! Suitable for both in-ground and above-ground pools. The Solar Reel is a companion product to any solar blanket purchase and allows for the convenience and simplicity of deploying and storing your solar blanket. Increase your water temperature by up to 15 degrees with the bubble pool cover!

Each type of pool cover (mesh, solid and automatic, bubble) has pros and cons, and you’ll need to determine which options best suit your family’s needs in order to choose the right one for you. Depending on your needs, you may choose more than one.
