If you’re in need of a pool cover, the first step in your journey is to review why you want a pool cover in the first place, and what are problems you hope to resolve with the purchase. Do you need it to extend the pool’s operational temperature range, prevent water loss due to evaporation, and maintain a pristine swimming environment or are you looking for a cover with a security aspect to protect your loved ones?
Investing in a high-quality pool cover will help you save both time and money. It’s important to always consider your budget, and any aesthetic preferences you may have, and recognise the layout of your pool shape & surrounds. These pool cover factors listed below each serve as a buying factor, and finding the cover that is best for your pool will depend on the following factors.
Budget – Pool Covers vary greatly in price from your cheaper generic & budget-friendly bubble covers costing from $10-25m2 to the premium top-of-the-range CVX Auto Security Covers costing from $ 375 per m2.
Quality – Whilst there are many Pool Cover manufacturers they are not all made equal, be sure to stay away from your cheap eBay or aldi pool covers & be sure to choose a Climate care certified & Smart Watermark Approved supplier to know the quality of your product is up to industry standard.
Longevity – The expected lifespan of the chosen cover in this category goes hand in hand with the quality of the product whilst a cheap eBay or aldi style Bubble cover can be expected to only last 1-2 years a good quality pool cover should last anywhere between 8-15 Years.
Maintenance – All covers will need the odd wipe down or hose off but also consider the day-to-day maintenance, For example, a Solar Bubble Cover is not as UV friendly when left off the pool for extended periods of time & will require the use of a UV Resistant overcover to help prevent breaking down of the plastic materials over time.
Does the cover fit the purpose? – Consider the problem you are trying to solve & evaluate what covers are best suited to resolving the issue. Eg; Looking for a budget-friendly pool cover that stops evaporation, reduces debris & warms the water then a Solar Bubble Cover may be the best choice for you, Looking for something with better aesthetics, quality & longevity with added insulation to reduce your heaters power consumption than consider a Thermal Cover, Is Debris the main issue than our Pooltex Debris Cover might fit the bill or for added Security for your kids & pets than our CVX Auto Security Cover range should be strongly considered.
