The main benefit of a pool cover in winter is that rainwater, melted snow and debris collect on the cover and create a pool of water that needs to be pumped to prevent the pool from spilling out during spring removal.
Like a strong winter cover, the outdoor swimming pool mesh cover is made of a very strong and very durable fabric. However, mesh caps do not have the same plastic coating as solid caps and are therefore porous caps. This design feature allows rainwater and melted snow to enter the pool through the cover.
This prevents water from pooling at the top of the lid, making source removal easier and cleaner, and also reduces the need to use tap water to fill pools in springs. Another benefit of winter pool covers is that they are lightweight while offering excellent strength and durability.
On the other hand, the mesh lining prevents coarse debris from entering the pool while allowing silt and other fine debris to penetrate the mesh material. This means that reopening a pool that has been closed with a net may require more cleaning than a pool that has been closed with a tight lid during the winter.
In general, winter pool covers for inground pools offer great advantages and benefits of both types. With their durable construction, heavy-duty winter pool covers and net covers can offer a high level of protection for your pool during the cold winter months.
