As with all swimming pool heating systems, you are advised to use a pool cover when your swimming pool is not in use.
Using a pool cover is important for several reasons:
- Energy Efficiency: A pool cover helps to reduce evaporation (the greatest heat loss), which in turn reduces the need for energy consumption and saves you money on heating costs.
- A pool cover can cut total heat loss by 50% to 95%.
- Less Maintenance: A pool cover reduces the amount of debris and dirt that falls into the pool, making maintenance and cleaning easier.
- Water Quality: Pool covers help to prevent the growth of algae, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms in the pool water, ensuring that your pool remains clean and safe to use.
- Aesthetics: A pool cover protects your pool from the elements and keeps it looking great all year round, adding aesthetic value to your outdoor space.
Overall, using a pool cover provides numerous benefits that help to improve the safety, cleanliness, and efficiency of your pool, making it a worthwhile investment for any pool owner.
