Depending on where you live, winters can get pretty harsh. From the dried leaves of Fall blowing around to the sleet, ice and snow streaking down, your pool can receive a ton of punishment for 4 months of the year. When it is finally time to enjoy your pool during those hot summer days, you are spending more time cleaning out the mud, debris, leaves and algae built-up. If you have a large pool, you may have to spend a large amount of money to have it professional serviced.
End the hassle of major pool maintenance by winterizing your pool during those harsh months. With winter pool covers, you don’t have to worry about the larger debris entering your pool. A winter pool cover fits snugly over the sides, protecting your pool water from whatever the winter has in store for it every year. You can obtain both above ground and in-ground winter covers in a variety of warranty levels.
Below are two types of pool covers you may want to consider before the winter arrives. Most covers come in 8-year, 12-year, 15-year, 20-year, and 25-year warranties.
8 Year Above Ground Winter Pool Cover
Above ground pools can experience harsh winters from blowing winds and heavy snow. Protect your water so that it is crystal clear in the spring with this winter pool cover that offers an 8-year warranty, with 1 year fully rated.
This cover is made out of rugged polyurethane scrim with UV protection so that it can withstand nature’s elements for many years whether it is heavy snow or direct sunlight. The cover has a 4-foot overlap so that it will stay on while being stretched by the heavy weight of the snow or rain. The cover is lined with a black underside that will prevent the growth of algae. A vinyl coated cable and rip proof grommets help to secure the cover to your pool.
15 Year In-Ground Winter Pool Cover
In-ground pools need as much protection from the winter as above ground pools. That’s why you can get the in-ground winter cover with the 15-year warranty. The scrim is made of polyurethane to prevent the material from tearing as UV coated protection will prevent the cover from developing cracks or fading from direct sunlight.
You won’t discover algae built-up in the pool due to the black underside of the cover that stops growth. At every four feet, there are loops to secure water bags and corner brackets to keep the cover securely down even on the windiest of days. You will have 5 extra feet of cover for your pool to allow for tension from the weight of water and snow.
Enjoy Your Summer Sooner With Winter Covers
All you have to do is take off the cover when warmer weather arrives and stow it away. You will be amazed by the crystal clear pool water that will require less cleaning. You’ll be eager to winterize your pool every year.
