Inground Swimming Pool Covers Find New Life In Unexpected Places

Old Pool Covers Find New Life…on the Farm?

From Aqua

Swimming pool covers are a valuable utility to protect one’s investment in an inground swimming pool. Covers protect the swimming pool surface, and they provide a safety barrier during the off-season months.  It turns out, according to this post from Aqua Magazine, that once these heavy-duty covers exceed their utility on a swimming pool, they can be repurposed for many different applications.  Rather then turning up in a landfill, the pool cover is recycled for various necessary purposes and has a fruitful second life.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

For example, Guided Hope is a non-profit organization with a ranch in Berthoud, Colo., home to horses, llamas, cows, goats, and more. The ranch’s mission is to help individuals and families coping with grief, military deployment, medical hardships and other tough situations a chance to reconnect through work, education, play and service. Guests can feed pigs, pet rabbits, gather eggs — all the staples of ranch life, followed by classes and small group studies.
