While almost eliminating water evaporation, a pool cover also reduces the amount of chlorine required to keep the pool in balance. If there is an automatic salt water chlorinator in use, the amount of time this has to run is also reduced, saving power. This is because; a pool loses a large amount of its chlorine through the action of evaporation. With the evaporation almost eliminated, the loss of chlorine is also reduced along with the cost of replenishment.
When shopping there are three main options: winter pool covers, safety pool covers, or solar pool covers. Winter covers are covers that can be used at any time of the year, all year long. Winter covers are known for reducing water evaporation, and for protecting a pool from leaves, branches, and other objects that can fall and damage or discolor your pool.
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.
