Here is an excerpt from the post:

Swimming pool covers offer a variety of benefits to pool owners, but with several styles to choose from it’s important to have the right cover to meet your needs. If you’re thinking about adding a cover to your pool, make sure you consider factors like climate, pool size and what you want the cover to accomplish. Below are the three most common types of pool covers. Solar Covers Solar covers or solar blankets, as they are sometimes called, are great for your pool, your wallet and the environment. They transfer heat from the sun into your pool water and prevent heat from escaping, which gradually raises the water temperature by up to 15 degrees. At the same time, solar covers reduce chemical and water loss from evaporation. All of these results save you money by lowering chemical, water and heating costs. Plus, they are easy to cut and shape to fit kidney, oval or irregularly sized pools. Winter Covers A winter cover is primarily used to safeguard your pool from winter weather, debris and other undesirable items that could possibly enter the water. With two main styles—solid and mesh—pool owners have a choice to make when it comes to winter covers. A solid cover blocks out the sun and prevents algae growth throughout the winter but needs to be maintained to prevent build-up on top of the cover. A mesh cover doesn’t block out as much sunlight, which means a little more water maintenance come spring, but it does allow rain and snow to pass through the cover for easier winter care. – See more at:
