Do Pool Covers Reduce Pool Heating Costs in Queensland?
Maintaining a swimming pool is about more than water filtration and cleaning agents. A swimming pool is an open body of water with a large surface area that can easily become contaminated with debris. Heated pools, in particular, are difficult to maintain because they lose heat to the surrounding air, leading to higher energy costs just to regulate temperature. At Peachy Pools, we believe that one of the best ways to manage pool heating costs is by using a swimming pool cover.
In this blog, we discuss the benefits of a swimming pool cover and how it can lower your energy bills.
Slows Down Evaporation
Pool covers allow a pool owner to easily cover the surface of the water during sunny days. A solar bubble or thermal pool cover is the ideal way to protect pool water from evaporation due to direct sunlight. Reducing water loss due to evaporation means that you won’t have to refill your pool as often, which helps conserve water during the harsh summer months.
Reduce Chemical Use
Although pool chemicals are considered safe if used correctly, cleaning agents such as chlorine degrade when exposed to UV radiation in sunlight. Degraded chemicals can irritate the eyes and skin, as well as allergic reactions. Peachy Pools’ high-quality hidden pool covers block UV radiation which prevents chemical degradation and reduces a pool’s chemical consumption by up to 50%.
Retain Heat In Swimming Pool
A thermal pool cover is one of the best ways to retain heat. When the temperature drops at night, the heat in the water is lost to the atmosphere. Whether your pool is heated using a gas system or warmed with direct sunlight, a pool cover will retain enough heat for a swim the next day. Even a simple pool cover can prevent heat loss and reduce the amount of energy needed to reheat a pool.
