A winter cover will keep leaves, dirt, debris and wildlife out of the pool during the time the pool is out of use.
The visible surface of the cover is blue and it has a black underside. This serves to exclude light from the pool - light is vital for algae to grow and without it algae cannot proliferate.
The fabric of our winter covers is extraordinarily strong and it is hemmed all round, with brass eyelets every 50cm. The cover is fixed to toe-friendly, stainless-steel anchors (drilled into the pool-surround) with heavy-duty elastic bungee straps. Our covers completely cover the pool.
Winter Covers do not need a roller but removal and replacement is a physical, time-consuming job; therefore they are put on at the end of the season and left in situ until spring.
Our Winter Covers are guaranteed for 5 years but, if cared for in the way that we teach during our Installation, the cover will probably last twice as long.
We visit your pool and measure the cover. We make drawings and/or templates as appropriate and write out a Quotation for the work.
When the client has seen our Quotation, and if we are awarded the work, we ask for a 50% deposit (as we will make a cover to exactly fit that pool). The deposit can be by Internet Transfer, by Cheque or in cash.
We then make the cover in the factory. Each cover has a mesh strainer/drainage panel welded into the centre to prevent rain pooling on the fabric.
We then return to the pool, by appointment, and install the cover. We teach the client (or his/her Pool Guy) how to deploy and retrieve the cover and how to prepare it for storage in the springtime.
We then give the client the Invoice and take the balance in cash.
We also make our winter covers to supply by mail-order. We use the measurements as supplied by the client, and supply all fittings and installation instructions.
In order to make a mail-order cover we need to know the size of the water surface and the width of the pool-surround. A photograph of the pool is also very useful. Please make initial enquiries by email.
Please note that it is NOT A SAFETY COVER.
A child or dog can walk across the cover but this is not recommended.
Floating Solar Covers are like heavy-duty, UV-stabilised, blue 'bubble-wrap'. Like all plastics they are affected by the sun's UV rays and eventually they will break down.
Their purpose is to place a barrier between the water and the air; thus reducing evaporation to almost nothing. (Evaporation of the pool water is the cause of 90%+ of all heat losses from the pool).
There are dozens of types and qualities of floating cover. We recommend that you install only the very best available as this represents the best value for money in the long term.
Our Pool Covers are carefully hand-welded in Murcia from 'Geobubble' stock; the best quality available in Europe.
A roller is also required to remove and re-place the cover. The width for a floating pool-cover is limited to 6.6 metres as this is the maximum width spanned by a telescopic roller. Rollers are made from Stainless Steel, Aluminium and Brass and will last for many years. One end is fitted with wheels to enable the roller/cover to be moved away from the pool whilst the cover is removed.
Just thought you might like to know how pleased we are with our Pool Cover, we brought it from you last August, and although you said it
was much more efficient at keeping the heat in, than our old one was, we thought it might just be "sales talk".
BUT YOU WERE RIGHT! We are amazed how much difference to the temprature it has made, we have hardly needed to use the pool heater at all this winter, and now of course we have to wind the cover back, so the water is not too hot! Its great, thanks a lot, and feel free to pass our name on as a recommendation,
Kind regards, Pauline and John Jeffrey, Estepona. (Installed in August 2008)
Each of our covers is custom made to the individual pool and therefore it's not possible to give a price per se. Please email us with the approximate dimensions of your pool and we will give an approximate price for the cover. We will gladly visit your pool for a free Quotation.
