Like other high quality above ground pool covers designed to provide winter protection, the best skirted covers feature a black underside. This is an important characteristic to look for because a black underside will prevent light from passing through the cover, thereby inhibiting the growth of algae. The tight weave of the polyethylene fabric also helps to prevent algae growth and will greatly reduce the possibility of dirt and debris getting past the cover and entering the pool water. Not surprisingly, when algae growth is inhibited, it's far easier and faster to open your pool again in the spring, as far less cleaning and effort will be required.
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.
Safety covers are designed to be strong and protective, and are made with little children in mind. It is designed so that little children and animals can not, and will not, accidentally fall into a pool. This is obviously a great choice if there are kids and pets around your house quite a bit, since safety should always come first.
