Pool safety is one of our highest priorities here at Coversafe, and we tend to talk about the life saving benefits of an automatic pool cover a lot – but in this article, we chose to focus on some of the other savings you will see with the addition of a pool cover. Not only will we cover some of the monetary savings of owning a pool cover, but we feel it’s also important to highlight how they can help reduce your environmental impact! At a time when it is more crucial than ever to conserve both water and energy, an automatic pool cover is a great step in the right direction for the future.
So, just how much are you saving with a Coversafe automatic pool cover?
- Labor & Chemical Consumption
The ability to open and close your pool quickly with your automatic pool cover can save you time and money on pool maintenance. Spend more time swimming and less time cleaning leaves and other debris from your pool! Your automatic pool cover will also help stop evaporating water, which can help save you money on replacing chemicals. Many automatic pool cover owners see their pool chemical consumption drop anywhere from to 35-60%. As a long term effect, this can help the environment by reducing the energy used on packaging and transportation of chemicals.
- Heating & Water Loss
Evaporation is the leading cause of heat loss your pool will experience. On average, a standard size pool will lose roughly 1-4 inches of water a week through evaporation. Keeping your cover closed while your pool is not in use is the #1 way to prevent evaporation and heat loss. Thanks to the covers evaporation slowing properties, you will also notice the cost to heat your pool drop significantly with regular use of your pool cover. It’s been reported that pool cover owners save as much as 50-70% on pool heating costs! Cutting down on the energy used to heat your pool helps reduce your carbon footprint.
Automatic pool cover owners have also enjoyed the benefit of lowered electricity bills. This is thanks to the reduced amount of dirt and debris in your pool! Keeping your pool covered when not in use will keep your pump and filter running more efficiently AND helps to reduces the overall time spent running.
