Swimming Pool Covers
USA: Swimming Pool Covers: Swimming Pool Cover Manufacturers
ABOUT SWIMMING POOL COVERS & ENCLOSURES
Swimming pool covers can act as a safety device, preventing children and pets from falling into the pool and drowning. They keep dirt and debris out of the pool, particularly in winter. Swimming pool covers also reduce evaporation, retain heat, and can provide solar gain. They are available in various colors, including black, dark blue, and dark green, in vinyl and polypropylene mesh. An alternative to the simple swimming pool cover is the swimming pool enclosure. These are usually made from glazed metal frames, and may slide back to provide open air swimming in good weather.

The covers can be fitted to new pools, or can be retro-fitted to existing pools using deck-mounted track. Because each cover is custom made, any shape of pool can be covered.
