Winterizing Swimming Pools

A review of the supplies needed to winterize swimming pools and a comparison of US-made swimming pool covers as opposed to Imported swimming pool covers, including why US-made swimming pool covers are the better product.

Each component of a winter swimming pool cover, including the quality and the construction of those products, can contribute significantly to the value of that pool cover. Swimming pool covers made in the United States tend to wear longer and provide more service time than pool covers made elsewhere do.

Superior strength fabric strands US swimming pool manufacturers use during the process of constructing swimming pool covers provide superior strength and straightness, created by the hot air process that makes them, compared to the water loom process Imported pool cover manufacturers prefer to use when constructing pool covers. Additionally, Imports tend to be made of a weaker, kinked strand of fabric requiring more reinforcements to seal them than US-made pool covers require.

Imported pool covers have a lower denier, the breaking strength of each fabric strand used in the weaving process than US made swimming pool covers have, and tend to rip much easier, too. The servicability, longetivity, and durability of US-made pool covers makes them about impossible to rip.

The horizontally and vertically woven together number of fabric strands per square inch, or the pool cover's scrim, is another deciding factor in selecting a top quality pool cover and US-made pool cover manufacturers generally provide more scrim than Imports have.

Stores that only sell the cheaper imported pool covers tend not to indicate the denier or scrim, or disclose the origin of the pool cover manufacturer's location. Imported pool covers can be expected to last a couple years before replacement will be required.

One type of pool cover that can be used for winterization of swimming pools are mesh pool covers. These pool covers block out the sunlight from swimming pools, but allow water to seep through the pool cover, so pumping water accumulated off the pool cover does not need to happen, and debris, such as leaves, can easily be swept off the pool cover. Mesh covers allow faster Spring-time pool openings so families can start enjoying their swimming pools quicker. With mesh covers pool refill is not necessary, therefore, time and water are saved, and like solid swimming pool covers, mesh covers are available in round or oval shapes to fit almost all swimming pool shapes or sizes known to exist.

Solar energy pool covers increase water temperature and reduce heat loss. The darker the pool cover the more heat they attract and the faster the heat transfer occurs, as much as fifteen degrees. Solar energy pool covers come in most sizes and can be trimmed to fit off-size swimming pools. Solar energy pool covers can be ordered to fit as needed, and a reel makes putting solar energy swimming pool covers on the pool an easier task to do.

The choice of pool covers right for each individual to winterize their swimming pool depends on their particular needs and the environmental factors the pool is found in. Some top US Pool Cover Manufacturers include Garrett Lines, located in Fallsington, Pennsylvania, with their line of vinyl pool covers, Aquamatic, of Gilroy, California, which offers an assortment of automatic swimming pool covers, polymer lids, and benches, Salt Lake City, Utah's Cover Pools, that provides many all-in-one swimming pool covers, and Libbert Swimming Pool Enclosures, of Addison, Texas, who manufactures pool enclosures of aluminum frames and glazing.

Winterization swimming pool supplies may include air pillows, skimmer covers, chemical kits for pool closings, cover cables, winch tighteners, cover clips, cover patch tapes, cover pumps, water tubes, aqua blocks, wall bags, winterization chemical kits, winterization plugs, LOOP-LOC swimming pool covers (a mesh cover), above ground swimming pool covers, and inground swimming pool covers, many of which are available on websites like poolsandspas.com, intheswim.com, and waterwarehouse.com, among many others.

The websites libbert.com, coverpools.com, aquamatic.com, garrettliners.com, and poolsandspas.com provide much more information on winterization of swimming pools.
