We absolutely GUARANTEE the LOWEST PRICES in the UK for Swimming Pool Covers and Rollers

Pools in Britain need to be covered. In summer a solar cover transfers heat from the sun to the water and prevents hear loss due to evaporation as well as insulating the surface. In winter a debris cover keeps leaves etc from blowing into the pool. Solar covers can be pleated off by hand off a small pool but removal is made easier with a roller. Rollers can be manually or electrically operated. Pool safety is a concern for families with small children so safety covers are increasingly in demand. These also can be manually or electrically operated. A safety cover is used summer and winter instead of a solar and winter cover. There are also heat retention covers for indoor pools.

Swimming Pool Solar covers

solar bubble covers

There are different colours and thicknesses.  For inground pools 400 micron is preferred in either blue, black, or blue with a silver back. The blue silver has greater heat retention as the silver reflects heat back into the pool. There are thicker 500 micron covers which are slightly stronger. They are available in blue with a gold back or clear. The blue gold retains extre heat like the blue silver. The clear cover takes its colour from the water underneath so is the least visible. There is also a 600 micro blue silver cover. This is strong but its weight and stiffness makes it harder to handle. When off the pool solar covers should be covered with a white reflective sheet to prevent them over heating in the sun.
Inground covers are made to order and are priced according to size. Tow kits are available that consist of a leading front edge and ropes. These can be factory fitted or provided as a kit and make it easier to put the cover back on.

Foam Covers

These are made of foam trapped between two layers of vinyl. They are approximately 6mm or 12mm thick with an extra cost for shaping. The pool or spa should be accurately measured as they are difficult to trim on site. They provide no solar gain so as best used with pools enclosed in a building with an opaque roof.

These stand on the deckat the end of the pool. Straps attach the cover to the roller so that the cover can be wound onto the roller. The cheapest rollers have end stands made of resin. Stronger rollers have steel end stands the most expensive being made of stainless steel. Some rollers can be supplied with wheels so that they can be rolled away from the edge of the pool when the pool is in use.

Manual Safety Covers

Efficient, eco friendly all year round safety covers for swimming pools. Most economical because they remove the need for separate summer and winter covers together with winders etc.

Safety covers consist of a reinforced taupalin like sheet that is stretched across the pool and retained so that it can be walked on. The most economical is a cover that has metal horizontal metal bars that straddle the pool and rest on the pool surround. The cover is held at intervals with retaining clips. The cover is removed manually using a special winder.

Others are just like the automatic covers below but much cheaper.

Swimming Pool Debris and Winter Covers

winter mesh covers

These are made 2' longer and 2' wider than the pool so they overlap the coping stones and keep out dirt and leaves. They are fixed with straps, made of rubber or reinforced mesh, that peg the cover into the surrounding paving. The covers are made of a green/black mesh that is porous so water does not puddle on the surface. For a little extre the covers can be made extra strong with criss cross webbing and/or pop up anchors to make attachment to the paving neater.

There is also an opaque PVC cover which keeps out light and minimises algal growth even in warm weather. Ideal for holiday homes abroad.
