Why Cover?

Pool Safety, Pool Maintenance, and Savings-Automatic Safety Pool Covers save time, money, and lives


Having a swimming pool can provide the ultimate experience in backyard family fun.  A pool is also a great responsibility.  Each year hundreds of children are killed or seriously injured in swimming pool accidents, most of which could have been prevented if a safety pool cover was in use.

The Facts:

  • Nearly half of child drowning victims were last seen in the house
  • Most drowning victims were missing for 5 minutes or less before being discovered in the pool and were being supervised by one or both parents (who were momentarily distracted by routine household activities)
  • Drowning is swift and silent.  There is no splashing sound or cries for help


The Solutions:

  • There is NO substitute for Adult Supervision
  • Most counties require minimum fencing requirements for swimming pools.  However multiple layers of protection are recommended, including Automatic Safety Pool Covers that meet the ASTM 1346-91 and are UL listed. Some counties are even recognizing Automatic Safety Covers that meet these requirements to be used in lieu of fencing as a primary barrier.
  • An Automatic Safety Pool Cover acts as a “horizontal fence” when covering a pool.  Traditional fences can be climbed by most children and only “deter” access to the yard.  A pool covered with an Automatic Safety Pool Cover is the best way to prevent access to the water.  Alarms and fencing provide multiple layers of protection but do not physically block access to the water.

Simple steps saves lives

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched Pool Safely: Simple Steps to Save Lives, a national public education campaign to reduce childhood drowning, submersion injuries, and entrapments. Above is a Pool Safely Educational Video.


Why waste?  Current pool owners know the expense of keeping a pool running: chemicals, electricity, heating, water, and time spent cleaning your pool can add up to a large expense.  The benefits of having your own pool will probably outweigh these costs, but being able to drastically reduce all of these expenses would certainly be nice. According to the Department of Energy:

  • Evaporation is by far the largest source of energy loss for both outdoor AND indoor swimming pools.
  • Evaporating water requires tremendous amounts of energy.  It only takes 1 Btu (British thermal unit) to raise 1 pound of water 1 degree, but each pound of 80°F water that evaporates takes a whopping1,048 Btu of heat out of the pool.
  • Covering a pool when it is not in use is the single most effective means of reducing pool heating costs.
  • Savings of 50% – 70% are possible.

Besides offering energy savings, pool covers also do the following:

  • Conserve water by reducing the amount of make-up water needed by 30% – 50%
  • Reduce the pool’s chemical consumption by 35% – 60%
  • Reduce cleaning time by keeping dirt and other debris out of the pool

Going Green?

No matter how “efficient” your pool pump and heater are, unless the pool itself is covered, your money is literally “evaporating”.  You would never heat your house with all the windows open, so why would you heat your pool without a cover?  A Cover-Pools® Automatic Pool Cover is the simplest way to cover or uncover your pool in less than a minute making it the most effective way to get the savings out of your “energy efficient” equipment. Automatic Safety Pool Covers save you time, energy, and money!
