Your guide to summer pool covers ...

Dear Pool Owners

Loadshedding continues to wear us all down but, unpacking it a bit further, pool owners don't realise that their uncovered pool is part of the problem, putting an unnecessary burden on the flailing power supply. A pool cover can halve your filtration time every day - that is an incredible amount of power saved when you apply it to all pools in SA! It's time to be proactive and a part of the solution by covering up, not just blame the supplier!

Power aside, if your pool is uncovered, it is probably costing you far more than it should, be it on water, power or chemicals. And if you have young children, you're taking serious chances if your pool is open. Remember, in summer, child drowning statistics soar. Don't leave it until after an accident happens, cover it now. Safeguard your pets too with our bestselling solid safety cover.

As our Sensible Summer outlook continues into the season, we have compiled a handy guide to the best type of cover for your summer pool. Why not consider a pool cover as a gift these holidays - the gift that really does give back all year round.

Cover of the month: circular PowerPlastics Solid Safety Cover - 

fitted by the new Special Projects team. 

We have recently launched a Special Projects division, catering to more elaborate and custom pool shapes that, until now, were tricky to cover with a PowerPlastics Solid Safety Cover. Thanks to some serious design skills we are able to take on even more complex pool cover designs. If you have been turned away in the past due to an unusual pool design or obstructions around the edges, do get in touch as we may be able to make it work! 

Pictured below is a recent installation where the circular aesthetic is retained when the pool is closed.
