Everybody just loves Bestway pools. And there are good reasons for this, apart from instantly upgrading your garden or backyard.
An important accessory for your Bestway pool are pool covers. And there are a number of reasons behind this.
For many pool owners, the last thing you’d enjoy is jumping into a pool that turns your toes into ice cubes and stops your heart. Covering a heated pool will retain more of its warmth throughout the night. Even if your pool is not heated, the warmth the water collects from the sun throughout the day won’t cool down as quickly with a pool cover overnight. Everyone wants a cool, refreshing dip on a hot summer’s day, but plunging into hypothermic waters is very unpleasant. No need to purchase a special pool cover to keep your water warm – solar covers and your conventional vinyl shield heat in just as effectively.
By covering your water, a pool tarp acts by both reducing the foreign objects that can fall in and pollute the waters, and keeps chemicals that are in the water from evaporating with it. The pool cover keeps your pool cleaner, so you don’t have to add chemicals nearly so often. While chemicals in your water keep it safe and clean, many chemicals also have side effects of irritation, redness, asthma, allergies, and watery eyes that can ruin pool fun. Covering your pool allows you to decrease the need for chemicals from 35 to 60 percent.
A lot of pool owners pass up on buying a cover because they think they’re a big hassle to pull over and secure. You might think differently once you find out the bigger hassle of cleaning out your pool every day, and shocking it with expensive chemicals constantly. Avoid the wrestling match with your tarp and buy an automatic pool cover – just push a button, and the device rolls the tarp over the pool for you. But if you can’t fit an automatic pool cover in your budget, by following the right instructions, pulling a cover over or off your pool should be an easy process.
You probably don’t enjoy vacuuming your pool bottom or running the net through the water every day, or know anybody else who does. You bought a pool to relax and spend time swimming in – not to clean and maintain it most of the time. By just taking two minutes to pull the cover over the water every night, you keep twigs and debris out and spare yourself the trouble. Plus, when you save on energy, you’re keeping more of those resources in nature – pool tarps are perfect for those with hearts for the environment.
A special note for the economic and environmentally-minded – if you keep your pool covered with a tarp during the days you don’t use it, it prevents the sun from evaporating the water out of it. That leads to less frequent refills, a cheaper water bill and less water extracted from nature. For pool owners in a dry region with many droughts, having a pool covered on sunny days when it’s not in use is the smartest move you can make.
Thanks to the strong, fiberglass mesh pool tarps are manufactured with, they can catch children or people from falling into the water as long as you’ve secured the cover properly. Heavy-duty tarps can hold more than 400 pounds, but most often require an automatic tracker to support. Be warned: solar covers are made from lighter material, and don’t work as efficiently as a safety net. Anyone attempting to brand a tarp as both durable and solar-powered is probably trying to dupe you!
