Solar pool covers can save up to 97% of water evaporation loss. This then greatly reduces the need to top up the pool during the course of the year. This means that the pool owner is not drawing water from the city supply or harvested rain water stored in tanks to top up water lost through evaporation. A leaf and debris cover’s ability to reduce evaporation is less than that of a solar blanket but still significant. In both cases, the cover’s ability to stop or greatly reduce evaporation is a great benefit to the environment and preserving our natural water asset.
Extreme cantilever is another option. With this method, a free form design is maintained throughout the build. This is accomplished by building the pool as you would for a pool in pool application and then with forms placed from the track to the edge of the freeform pool, concrete decking is poured to finished elevation. After the forms are removed there is a four to six inch notch for the cover to travel through. In some cases the tracks have been as far as four feet from the water’s edge.
In the modern age of swimming pool design there are virtually unlimited ways to incorporate an automatic pool cover into the build. In the past, you were pretty much limited to a plain rectangle pool with an industrial looking aluminum lid to cover the recessed mechanism housing. This mind-set has become a thing of the past.
The cost savings also extend to the replenishment of the water lost through evaporation which if replaced via the city supply will come at a monetary cost.
There are a few things you will want to buy along with an above ground pool in addition to mandatory supplies like a liner. One of those items is a cover. Above ground pool covers offer two very strong benefits. If you are going to have a pool, you are going to want to have a cover, as well.
