Do you live in a home that has a pool? Do you also have small children? If the answer to both of these questions was yes, then it is important to keep reading to learn why having a pool cover is critical to everyone’s safety.
A pool cover is one of the first investments that you should make if you have any type of pool that a child may fall into. If your children are old enough to climb or crawl there is always a possibility that an accident like falling into the pool could happen. The last thing that you want is a tragedy that could have been simply avoided by putting a cover over your pool.
Save Maintenance Time
Aside from the safety features that a pool cover offers, it also helps to ensure that you are not spending countless hours cleaning your pool before you use it. There is nothing worse than wanting to jump into the cool, refreshing water only to realize that you are going to have to spend the next half an hour or so cleaning out the leaves and other debris that may have fallen in. Even if we have warm temperatures in Ottawa this fall, the leaves are falling and they’ll find a way into your pool water without a cover.
Maintain Ideal Temperature
The right pool cover will also help you to maintain the ideal temperature of your pool. The night air in Ottawa gets awfully chilly. A pool cover will help to bring up the heat of the water naturally instead of having to spend hundreds of extra dollars
on your electric bill to run a pool heater. It also helps to keep the rain out of the pool so that you don’t lose unnecessary heat.
What to Purchase
When you are purchasing a pool cover there are a few options to consider. At Purewater, we recommend safety covers. We install safety covers by measuring the pool for a custom-fit cover, installing anchors into the surrounding deck, and
finally installing the new cover and straps.
A pool cover is almost a necessity to help keep your pool safe and clean. It can help provide you with peace of mind if you have small children or pets. Finally, it can save you time and money in cleaning expenses. Call Purewater today for a free safety cover estimate or to schedule your safety cover installation.
