Brief About Automatic Swimming Pool Covers
Automatic Covers for swimming pools help to keep the pool clean in the Winter close down period. If you can prevent dirt and debris, such as leaves entering the pool it makes it much easier to open the pool in the Spring.
A pool which has been "put to bed" properly in the Autumn is much easier and cheaper to get going again.
There are a number of different types of winter covers, each suitable for different situations and budgets.
Probably the cheapest is the water bag cover for in-ground pools. This consists of little more than a tarpaulin stretched over the pool, but not sagging into it, and secured in place with water bags around the perimeter.

Mesh covers are a much better alternative. This is also stretched over the top of the pool, but this time is held in place by stainless steel fittings which are drilled into the pool surround and attached to the cover with straps. These fixings make for a much more secure cover. The mesh effectively acts in a similar way to a filter.
The water is allowed through, but the dirt remains on the top. The mesh cover can be tailored to fit different pool shapes. The spacings between the straps will depend on the size and shape of the cover.
Generally the larger and more complex the shape of the cover then the more straps it requires. Consequently, they are more expensive, per square foot.
