Winterising Your Pool with a Pool Cover: Save Money and Protect Your Investment

As the colder months approach, it’s essential to consider “winterising” your pool to save money and protect your investment. 

One of the most effective ways to do this is by using a pool cover. We look into how a pool cover can help you save money on your pool costs throughout the winter months.

  1. Reduced Heat Loss 
A pool cover acts as a barrier between your pool water and the cold air, significantly reducing heat loss. By minimising evaporation and heat transfer, a cover helps maintain your pool’s temperature, even during the cooler months. This means that when you want to heat your pool, it will require less energy to reheat, saving you money on heating costs.
  2. Lower Chemical Consumption 
When your pool is uncovered, debris, leaves, and other organic matter can easily find their way into the water. As these materials decompose, they consume chlorine and other pool chemicals, requiring you to add more to maintain proper balance. By using a pool cover, you minimise the amount of debris going into your pool, and therefore reduce the amount of chemicals required, saving you money.
  3. Decreased Water Loss 
Evaporation is a significant cause of water loss in pools, especially during the winter months when the air is dry. A pool cover dramatically reduces evaporation, helping to maintain your pool’s water level. This means you won’t need to top up your pool as often over the winter months, saving you money on your water bills.
  4. Improved Equipment Lifespan
Winterising your pool with a pool cover also helps protect your pool equipment! By reducing the debris in your pool that would normally go through your pump and filter, keeping the pressure in the system lower and helping to extend the life of your pool pump and filter. This leads to fewer repairs or replacements and long-term savings.
  5. Easier & Earlier Summer
When you use a pool cover during the winter months, you’ll find that when you’re ready to swim again, it’s much faster & easier to get your pool going. With less debris and a more balanced water chemistry, you’ll be able to get your pool swim-ready faster, allowing you to enjoy your investment sooner.

Investing in a high-quality pool cover is a smart choice for any pool owner looking to save money and protect their pool during the winter months.

By reducing heat loss, chemical consumption, water loss, and equipment wear and tear, a pool cover can help you minimise your pool costs while ensuring that your pool remains in top condition for years to come.
