With some many different add-ons available for your pool in Perth, you may not know where to start when it comes to getting the most out of your pool. Upgrading your pool cover can help to save you money and water in the long run, bringing a number of great benefits to your pool and the time you put into it. 

Advantages of a pool cover 

One of the most important accessories that you should be investing in for your pool is a good quality pool cover. The list of benefits that a pool cover can create for your home and pool are all praised and celebrated by our customers who’ve made the decision to buy a cover for their pool. 


  • Reducing Water Loss
  • We all know the power of that scorching hot Australian sun in summer, with evaporation being a huge factor in the water loss of your pool. However, many people may not be aware of the damage that this evaporation and water loss can have on your pool’s pump system. Installing a new pool cover will help to reduce this water loss that can occur when you’re not in the pool. As a result, you won’t need to be filling up your pool as often, helping you to lower your environmental footprint and save a few dollars off your water bill as well. 


  • Maintaining Water Temperature
  • Many people may find that their pools only get used on a few days each year, as the water temperature can vary and become too cold for people to dive into. If you're someone who dips their toe into their pool only to shudder with a cold chill, installing a pool cover can help you to maintain more of an even water temperature that you can enjoy. Also, if you have a water heating system, you can also benefit from the pool cover saving you on your heating bills, as you’ll even be able to increase the temperature slightly with the cover. 


  • Reduce Your Chlorine Consumption
  • The chlorine that you put into your pool is exposed to harmful UV light, which leads to it degrading over time. With the helpful addition of a new pool cover, you’ll be protecting your pool and reducing the amount of UV light that’s reaching the water in your pool. This means that you won’t need to be loading up your pool with as much chlorine, helping you to save valuable time and money on going out and buying the necessary Pool chemicals


  • Reducing Pool Litter 
  • Our pools can accumulate all sorts of different leaves, scraps or debris throughout the year. Having a solid pool cover in place will help to reduce the amount of litter that falls into your pool. This will help with your usual pool maintenance schedule as you won’t need to be getting your pool skimmer out as often. The same goes for your pumps and automatic cleaners, which won’t have as big of a load of work. A reduction in the litter will again help with the amount of chlorine you need to put in your pool. 


    Types of Pool Covers

    One of the most cost-effective types of pool covers is the hugely popular bubble cover, which can help absorb the heat of the sun throughout the day to help keep your pool nice and warm. The cover itself is also made from durable materials which are light and easy to move so that you can put the cover on and off efficiently. 


    If you’re looking for a cover that completely blocks the UV rays from the sun, thermal pool covers may be more suited to your pool. They are also long-lasting, meaning that you’ll be using the same pool cover for many summers to come. For those pools that are heated by solar heating, a thermal pool cover can be up to twice as effective in helping to retain your pool’s heat than other types of pool covers.
