Now that we’re more than halfway through summer, you might be tired of having to clean your pool every time you want to go for a swim. Luckily, you don’t have to do that anymore when you use a pool cover. Covers are great for more than just the end of the season. Here are some of the best times to use pool covers to optimize the protection of your pool.
- After every swim: When you use pool covers after every swim, you are ensuring that the insects, leaves, and debris don’t have the chance throughout the day to get into your pool. A pool cover is extremely easy to place and remove, so even if you go for multiple swims throughout the day, it still won’t take nearly as much time to set the cover as it would to fish out all the bugs.
- Before a long trip: You will definitely want to be sure to place your pool cover over the pool before a long trip. That way, the bugs and dirt aren’t having pool parties without you while you’re away. This can also keep other unwanted guests out of your pool while you’re away.
- At least every night: If nothing else, you will for sure need to use pool covers every night. This late in the summer, we’re not strangers to all the mosquitos and other critters that come out at night. The air becomes denser with insects every night, so you will want to keep your pool clear of those unwanted pests. This can also keep pets from blindly falling into the pool at night.
We speak from experience. Using pool covers can be a lifesaver for both your pool and your back. That way, you can enjoy swimming without the skimming. You can give us a call if you would like to learn more.
