Winter Pool Covers

Cover and protect your pool from the harsh effects of winter and prevent staining and algae growth during the cold months when your pool is not in use. Pool Center offers winter covers in various styles and materials so your pool can be well protected.

Covering your pool is very important to protect your pool from cold weather and to prevent dirt, dead leaves, and insects from falling in. Pool covers are available for both in ground and above ground pools, and come in various thicknesses in solid or mesh types; you can choose any based on your individual preference or have one custom made at Pool Center. The major differences between mesh and solid covers are listed below and will help you make the right choice.

Mesh Covers:

Mesh covers typically cost less than a solid vinyl pool cover, and last longer; on an average, a mesh cover will last 10-15 years whereas a solid cover will typically last 7-11 years. Mesh covers do not let the water accumulate on their surface but allow it to pass through so you do not need a pump to remove accumulated water. Mesh covers are constructed with light-weight material, making it easier for one person to be able to take them off and put them on, unlike solid covers which usually require two people to move them.

Solid Covers:

The main advantage of a solid winter pool cover is the fact that it does not allow sunlight to pass through, thus preventing algae growth. Solid winter covers also keep the water out of your pool which keeps your pool cleaner so you will need less scrubbing and fewer chemicals when you open your pool in spring.Regardless of their material and type, pool covers will protect your pool during the cold months when your pool will not be in use, and will make pool openings easier and faster. Pool Center offers Solid Winter Covers and Mesh Winter Covers for both in ground and above ground pools; as well as Hybrid Winter Covers for Above Ground pools which combine the best qualities of solid and mesh covers to give you the best of both worlds. You will also need to make sure that you use an effective anchoring system to hold your pool cover. Water tubes like Double Pool Water Bags - Double Pool Water Tubes and Corner Water Tubes work perfectly in securing your pool cover and keeping it in place.
