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.
The great thing about skirted above ground pool covers is that they will fit your pool like a glove for ultimate protection. Skirted covers are first cut to match the exact size and shape of your swimming pool. Then a skirt is sewn on to the main part of the cover to provide an even better fit. Skirted above ground winter pool covers come with a cable and small loops that attach to the pool uprights. The cable can then be run through the loops and the cover, allowing the cover to be safely and tightly secured. Just as pool covers with large overlaps are beneficial when it comes to extra protection, skirted above ground pool covers provide that extra material which makes it easier for the cover to withstand windy and other harsh weather.
The decision to buy a swimming pool is taken with the idea of providing more opportunities to enjoy time at home spent swimming with family and friends. However while a swimming pool can provide hours of entertainment over the swimming season months, it also calls for continued maintenance and upkeep all year round. A pool cover can help reduce this maintenance and upkeep both in time and monetary outlay.
