Decorative Pool Cover Ideas

When you live in the hot climate of Southern Florida, you know that even a nice warm day at the pool can be less refreshing when you’re exposed to things like sun and bugs. Many people take the added precaution to protect their families against pests such as mosquitoes, and birds, but the newer pool covers are also a shield against the harmful sun rays. Here are a few pool cover ideas that you might not have considered before reading this blog.

Enclosed pool areas are great because they protect your home from many things. They make it safer from the heat, protect your family investment, avoid harmful rays from the sun while keeping bugs out.

These enclosures can be reasonably priced or can be quite costly, but it’s worth the money when you consider the use of the pool.

Preventing uninvited people from coming into your pool area should always be on the forefront of safety in any household. Most people want to have these enclosed areas screened and secured with locks. It’s best to speak to a pool designer on what would be best for you and your family.

Retractable roofs are popular with many of the enclosed designs. These are great during the months when it’s overbearing or when it’s cool in the winter season. Either way this is going to be a high ticket item, but will build additional value of the pool. The nice thing is you can gaze at the stars while soaking in your Jacuzzi and never miss a thing. Most retractable roofs for pool enclosures are electronic and have some type of remote control system. Many of these remotes can be programmed to work with your smartphone or tablet if you have a system that allows smart devices.

Pavilions are not enclosed but rather thick wooden beams that hold up a roof area protecting you from the sun. Other than weather elements and decoration, these are not going to have many other function, but make a nice addition to your outdoor living space. Throw in a fireplace and add a water fountain or cascade and your pavilion will take on a whole new ambience. Quite a few people are adding Wi-Fi or turning their homes into smart home and controlling devices like pool lighting, stereo to the pavilion allowing them more function ability.

Electronic pool covers are ideal for protecting your pool from algae and other things from creeping into your pool. You can get them in both mesh and vinyl. If you take a break in the winter months from your pool, then vinyl might be the way to go since it doesn’t allow the pool to heat up as quickly as mesh.

Home automation is becoming more popular than ever in the South Florida/West Palm Beach area. Contact The Pool Guys of Palm Beach for information on Electronic Pool Covers and repair.

Many of us are interested in using some type of pool cover to prevent someone from entering the pool when you’re not at home. Hybrid style is a little of both vinyl and mesh and are becoming more popular.

Two things to point out with a pool cover that has both mesh and vinyl is sunlight can get into the center where the mesh is designed and located and the other is you no longer need a pump on the top to operate under the cover.

There are several options for selecting just the right cover or structure for your pool and its design.

Budget may be something to consider when making your selection. Speak to a pool designer that can help assess your outdoor living space or your pool to see what the best solution will be. In the meantime, keep watching the blog for more interesting and helpful tips on your pool.
