Automatic Pool Covers – Is It Time to Replace or Can You Keep It?

By Justin - Updated On: 04/29/19

A pool cover works hard for your swimming pool, keeping it safe from the elements and your family safe from potential accidents. Over the years all this hard work will start to cause wear and tear, and at some point you'll have to either remove or replace the cover. Learn why we always recommend replacing your cover when that time comes, and why, if you haven't invested in an automatic pool cover yet, you should.

How Long Have You Had Your Cover?

When it comes to a pool cover's lifetime, keep in mind that it’s not a ‘one size fits all’ situation. Each manufacturer offers their own individual warranty, so if you’ve already purchased yours with a pool company outside of Royal Swimming Pools, you’ll need to check into your package.

With an excellent warranty, you should receive a five year warranty for the cover, and a ten year warranty for the equipment such as the guides, pulleys, etc. As a general rule of thumb, replace your cover and its parts when your warranty has expired.

A Reminder About the Importance of Your Cover

When you bought your pool (or even if you’re just thinking about becoming a pool owner for the first time), you should have been taught that a cover is the single most important accessory you can purchase. Here’s a reminder as to why they are so crucial:

  • Your heating bill can double (or possibly even triple) per month when you don’t cover your pool. An automatic pool cover can save you about 50-75 percent in heating costs.
  • Got leaves in your pool? You sure will! When you invest in a durable, high-quality automatic pool cover you’ll save on the expense of skimmers and automated cleaners.
  • You’ll save yourself time. With an automatic pool cover, you won’t have to worry about spending hours every week scooping out the debris that covers your pool. 

Shop Automatic Pool Covers

No matter your budget or how experienced you are with pool ownership, nothing comes before your family’s health and well-being. A high quality cover can do just that, while providing the necessary protection your pool needs to last a lifetime.

Additionally, when you replace your pool cover with Royal Swimming Pools, you’ll receive amazing service, free shipping and a five year warranty. In other words, replacing your old cover with a new one has never been easier, and we guarantee it will be.
