When you’re not in your swimming pool the pool cover is the first line of defense for keeping debris and bugs and woodland critters out! Will your pool cover last another season? It’s a question the swimming pool contractors from Imperial Pools, Inc. in Decatur, Illinois get asked all the time.

With a new swim season right around the corner — 2021 — you will want to make sure your pool cover is in shape to protect the pool all season because we assume your winter cover has been packed away for the season. The swimming pool cover you use all summer long is different than the one used in the winter months.

Will your pool cover last another season?

Using a pool cover is recommended by all swimming pool contractors. Yes, it may be an additional expense to purchase one, but the benefits outweigh the costs.

  • Keeps bugs and any airborne debris from falling into the water.
  • Acts as a layer of safety to keep kids and pets from falling in — make sure you’re buying a safety cover if that’s the case.
  • Traps in heat — crucial if you heat the pool water.
  • Slows the rate of evaporation and that will save money

Give the pool cover a good once over to see if there are any spaces that look like they are getting threadbare or if it is moldy on the underside because of its proximity to the water. Pool covers don’t need to be replaced frequently — maybe every seven to ten years — but they are well worth the cost.
