If you are lucky enough to have a swimming pool in your back garden, you’ll want to make the most of using it whenever the weather allows you to do so. Of course there will be times of the year when you won’t be able to use it. During these times you may want to have a swimming pool enclosure to keep the pool covered.

There are many pros and cons to doing this, so let’s take a look at them now.

Pros

Safety is the biggest advantage if you have kids or animals. Since the pool is covered there is no risk of anyone or anything falling into the water. It will also prevent lots of other undesirable items falling into the pool. You won’t want to use it when the weather permits if you have to clean it out of dirt, leaves and other unwanted items first.

There are also different types of enclosures to consider. For instance some merely cover the top of the pool, while others still allow you to swim underneath it. This makes the pool usable through a larger part of the year.

Cons

Swimming pool enclosures don’t look as good as the pool itself. There is also the cost of the enclosure to think about. A basic cover will be a lot cheaper than an enclosure that allows you to house the pool so you can still use it, but you’ll need to take it on and off more frequently as a result.

The cheaper enclosures are also more prone to damage and to being blown away on windy days, causing more problems than they solve. Thus you often need to invest more than you might want to in order to get the results you want. Fill out our enquiry form to obtian a quote for the right enclosure that suits your swimming pool.
