Benefits of owning an automatic pool cover

Regardless of what kind of pool you own – a reliable pool cover is an absolute must. What type of cover to decide to use, however – is up for debate. Today, we’re going to talk mostly about automatic pool covers – their benefits, uses and instances as to where they’re the most useful. 

Especially if you’re in the process of trying to figure out what’s best for you, this can be helpful. Let’s jump right in!


The first is obvious – and that’s convenience. Instead of having to roll up a cover on your own, worrying about detritus sneaking into your pool and the like – you’ll simply have the convenience of pushing a few buttons and watching the cover unfurl and protect your pool. 

Additional safety

Additionally -safety can sometimes be a real concern – especially when you have small kids. Automatic pool covers can usually hold up to 2000 lbs. So if an animal or small child makes their way to the pool when they shouldn’t they’re not going to fall through and/or potentially get wrapped up in the cover itself. Obviously – you should keep everyone OFF the cover at costs; but it’s nice to know that in the event of the worst, you don’t have to worry as much.

Better temperatures

Third – automatic covers do a better job of maintaining heat and temperatures. Yes – the cover itself will be more expensive up front, but this can lead to significant cost savings over time, making the additional up-front costs worth it. 

Better balance

Lastly, you’re going to get a cleaner pool with better chemical balance. Especially for inexperienced pool owners – maintaining chemicals can be one of the more challenging aspects of owning your own pool. Making sure everything is the way it needs to be can be tough. Automatic covers keep rain out, other elements and debris – allowing the pool to better maintain a healthier overall chemical balance.
