According to research, swimming pools that are not protected by a pool cover can lose up to 30% of their heat and more than 10,000 liters of water every day, including water purification chemicals, all due to a natural evaporation process.
Evaporation, among many other factors, is primarily responsible for heat loss in pool water. Evaporation of water takes a lot of energy and removes a lot of heat from the water in the pool.
Using a pool cover will reduce heat loss by blocking evaporation and heat. Of course, heating costs for your pool are significantly reduced, as your water thermostat can reduce the heat supply from the boiler while the pool cover is in use.
Plus, locking in more heat with a pool cover will somehow extend your swimming season. Your swimming pool will stay warm and beautiful longer.
Covering the pool above your pool also significantly reduces the amount of energy required to ventilate the indoor pool area. Ventilation and exhaust fans are almost unnecessary, which saves more costs on air heating.
Not only do you save high energy costs by blocking evaporation, but you also save up to 50% on make-up water and up to 60% on chemicals for water treatment. The loss of volatile chemicals such as chlorine through evaporation is also significantly reduced.
Studies show that when pool owners only use a pool cover, about 5,000 gallons of water and chemicals are saved each year for their maintenance.
